Publisher's Summary

A devil is a bad influence.... There was a time when geeky, squeaky-clean Max Kilgore would never lie or steal or even think about murder. Then he accidentally unearths a devil, and Max's choices are no longer his own. The big red guy has a penchant for couch surfing and junk food - and you should never underestimate evil on a sugar high. With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the dark side, Max is racing against the clock to get rid of the houseguest from hell before time, and all the Flamin' Hot Cheetos this side of the fiery abyss, run out.
Gina Damico, author of the Croak series, once again delivers all the horror, hilarity, and high-stakes drama that any kid in high school or hell could ever handle.

Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, January 2015 - I’m famous around the office for being an evangelist for Gina Damico and her Croak trilogy. When I learned that she had a new book coming out I jumped at the chance for it to be my January pick. Max Kilgore’s nerdy life is pretty average – if not, a little sad – until one day when he makes a deal with the Devil… and the Devil refuses to leave. The outrageous situations that ensue highlight Damico’s talents for smart, quirky, and darkly comedic YA storytelling. Her unique blend of horror and humor lends itself so well to audio, and I can’t wait to relive Max’s journey with Audie Award-winning narrator MacLeod Andrews leading the way out of Hell. —Katie, Audible Editor

What the Critics Say

"MacLeod Andrews is hilarious as he delivers this darkly funny tale about a boy who finds Satan living in his basement.... Andrews's growly, juicy sounds make Burg sound as if he's a heavy smoker, yet Andrews also manages to sound absolutely adolescent as teenaged Max." (AudioFile)

Worth it just for Macleod Andrews

I am not familiar with Gina Damico's other works, so I am basing my review solely on this one.
I found it amusing in spots, but overall not the kind of wonderful snarky humor I enjoy with others of this genre.
The main problem I had with this book, aside from the rather weak plot, was the main character. He was so disagreeable at times and almost completely unchanged throughout the entire story, that I had a really hard time caring for his character. Most of the other characters, including the pivotal mother, were not fully realized at all.
And the devil. Well, once you get past the joke of he being the snack-loving devil, it gets pretty old.
The saving grace of this book is the narration by Macleod Andrews. Actually, it was his name as narrator that I purchased this in the first place. I would listen to Macleod Andrews read the phonebook.
