Madison Spencer, the liveliest, snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the adventures in the afterlife begun in Damned. Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from hell, she now wanders the purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, seeking her do-gooding celebrity parents, fighting the malign control of Satan, recounting the disgracefully funny encounter with her grandfather in a fetid highway rest stop in upstate New York when she—oh, never mind—and climaxing in a rendezvous with destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific called, not at all accidentally, Madlantis.
Dante Alighieri, watch your back. Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on you.
“If you only read one book this year about a dead teenager posting on message boards about playing supernaturalist and tempting Satan’s wrath, let it be this one.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The novel nicely continues Madison’s story, filling in a lot of the blanks in her life (we find out, for example, the real reason why she’s been damned) and exposing an ancient satanic plot that—believe it or not—has poor little Madison at its center…She’s a compelling character, and she drives a novel that will resonate from the get-go with Palahniuk’s many fans.” —Booklist
“Palahniuk’s follow-up to the bestselling Damned does not disappoint. Our eccentric, sharp-witted tween narrator walks the line between hilarity and sorrow throughout. Highly recommended for the author's many fans.” —Library Journal
