Imagine the fate of your soul
balancing on a thread as thin as a hair. Will the pearly gates open
wide, or will you be pulled down into that dark tunnel? Meg Finn
is that one-in-a-million person who gets one last chance to get it right.
Meg is only 14, but she’s had a hard life. Her mother died in a car
accident, leaving Meg in the care of her abusive stepfather. Oh,
Meg made sure she fixed him, and believe it or not, the Devil was very
impressed by her creative approach to revenge. Now, this one robbery,
and she’d get enough money to run away-but why did it have to be an old
man who hardly had enough to feed himself? Meg tries to save the
old man after her partner, Belch, and his dog Raptor injure him, but Belch
fires one wild pistol shot, and the next thing Meg knows, she’s balanced
between good and evil. Sent back, Meg intends to help old man Lowry
patch up his life, but when the Devil wants you, it’s tough to stay on
the side of the angels. Read the Wish List before your time runs
out! (Alyse Goldman, AGOLDMAN@loudoun.gov,

fireworks in there and he wouldn't stop snoring."
