A not so grim reaper
Looking for something a little offbeat? Then check out Death Jr. by Gary Whitta.
It tells the story of the son of the Grim Reaper and the trials and travails he goes through when he goes to a new school. Things get off to a bad start when he gets too close to the class goldfish and it dies. However, there are a other oddballs in the class, and Death Jr fits right in.
There is a story here---something about demons escaping and an army of the recently deceased taking over the world---but the real fun is seeing the Grim Reaper as a dedicated family man, and the relationship between father and son as Death Jr tries to be like his dad. A great light read.
