October Book of the Month, Demon Chick

So you think you have a bad relationship with your mother? Wait until you read Demon Chick by Marilyn Kaye and you will end up eternally grateful for your own mom. Sixteen year old Jessica Hunsucker should have everything to look forward to: it's her birthday, she's getting a total makeover and she's finally spending some quality time with her mom, an aspiring presidential candidate. Or so she thought. Turns out mommy dearest has other plans, like trading her daughter's soul to the devil in exchange for political power. Jessica finds herself entangled in a massive cover-up that includes her kidnapping, murder and descent into hell. We learn that there are different levels of hell and Jessica doesn't have it too bad, everything is just okay. The food is neither too hot nor too cold, the houses are not exceptionally comfortable or pretty to look at, and the selection in tv viewing is severely limited but enough to keep you tuned in. As Jessica learns of her mother's dangerous political influence over the world, she devises a plan to return to earth and save mankind.
