That’s Voice of Youth Advocates will be printing this great review of Everyone Dies in the End in their June issue:


Seventeen-year-old Sherman Andrews is accepted into the Missouri Scholar’s Academy the summer before his senior year. Interested in journalism, he wants to become an award-winning investigative journalist within the next ten years. What better way to start this plan than by turning out an investigative gem for his summer project? He thus decides to delve into the historical documents in the basement of the Missouri Historical Society, and ably assisted by student librarian Charlie, he uncovers a dangerous secret that soon has them (and his Scooby Gang classmates) fighting for his life.

The novel opens with an attack on Reverend Gowen in Columbia, Missouri, on September 3, 1935. Written in italics, this narrative continues throughout the novel and is juxtaposed against Sherman’s investigation. In fact, it is Sherman’s investigation of this attack that draws the two narratives together and puts his life on the line when he comes up against a foe whose claim to demonic immortality makes him virtually unbeatable. Sherman’s interaction with the other students in his program should appeal to fans of school stories. His frantic struggle to survive against virtually unbeatable odds will have fans of urban fantasy and dark, dangerous mysteries on the edge of their seats. This is another extremely well written, satisfying young adult novel by the author of Playing with Matches (Random House, 2008/VOYA October 2008) and Almost Perfect.
