A Holiday Book in Review

Damned By: Chuck Palahniuk
Fiction: Paranormal 247 pages
Book Count: 50

This is the story of a 13 year old girl, named Madison, who dies and goes to Hell.  Each chapter starts with a short note she writes to Satan (kind of like a dead, anti-version of the Judy Blume novel.) It then tells about her life on Earth or Hell.  Madison, as a teenager is a bit of an annoying narrator, especially in the beginning she is always going on about, yes she knows what this or that word means, she's dead not stupid, or about how everyone hates the dead.  But the storyline besides that is full of unexpected twists and turns that make the whinny teenagerness bearable.
