Milton and Marlo Fauster run into some trouble at the mall ond day and end up in Heck.  Heck is the place where the bad kids go.  Milton can totally understand how Marlo, his kleptomaniac sister ended up there, but he is a good kid.  He is sure a mistake has been made.\

As soon as they arrive, they are greeted by Bea “Elsa” Bubb, the Principal of Darkness of the Underworld’s reform school.  Immediately Milton and Marlo decide they have to escape and begin to formulate a plan.  By using a piece of liver in the cafeteria as a secret hiding place, Milton and Marlo begin to exchange notes until the time comes to make a run for it.

HECK is an enjoyable read that is packed with both, silly humor and creepy imagery.  The author leaves it open for a sequel.  Dale E. Basye has a great website devoted to this book that contains information about Heck itself as well as desktop wallpaper and other free goodies.  Click here to check it out.
