Your basic story about good versus evil and redemption. Except that it's wrapped in a package that any 11 or 12 year old would love to read. Lots of action.

The character is spunky, and the plot is interesting. This book really bridges the gap between "old man" and "no-good teenager". I loved how Meg, the main character, comes back to try and save her soul, but in the end, she saves not only her soul, but that of someone completely different in every way... But are they really that different after all?

The story of a troublemaker named Meg who is "too good for hell and too bad for heaven". From the back of the book, "Her soul is up for grabs as the divine and demonic try every underhanded trick imaginable to claim it. Meg's only chance to redeem herself is to help the old man she robbed fulfill his list of last wishes... before time runs out"
