Book Review: Croak by Gina Damico

Croak by Gina Damico is a young adult novel, released on March 20 2012. In this novel we meet sixteen-year-old Lexington, or Lex, Bartleby and her twin sister Concord, or Connie. The girls have never been separated, but have always been different from each other. Connie loves inventing while Lex has always had a little bit of a wild side. However, for the few years Lex's mood swings and temper have been spiraling out of control. One day she sucker punches another classmate, and her parents have reached the end of the rope. During vacation Lex is going to stay with her Uncle Mort and hopefully get her head straight. But Uncle Mort is not a farmer, like her parents imagine. Instead Mort is the Mayor of a town dedicated to the reaping of souls, and Lex is about to learn the trade. She acclimates to her new environment, with a few bumps along the way, until the discovery of unexplained deaths. Soon the very community that has accepted Lex is in danger, and so is she. Does she want to stop the killer, if she can, or does she want to join them in the apparent mission to cull the evil from society?
