Eunice Bug Smoot was 13 years old when her grandfather put her soul up as collateral on his dream car -- a classic 1958 Cadillac Biarritz. Now, five years later, Papa C is dead and buried, and Bug is trying to make it on her own by delivering pizzas and staying one step ahead of her landlord. And then the repo man arrives. Only Mr. Beals -- stinking to high heaven of rotten eggs and sporting leathery wings -- is not just any repo man... just as Pesto, Bug's longtime unrequited crush, is not just any car wash attendant.

Set in El Paso, Texas, this debut novel is peppered with car chases, basketball, a séance, true love, immigrant agents of a totally different sort, and, oh yeah, the Devil himself. Mostly, though, it features an irrepressible, memorable, wisecracking, absolutely fearless main character who will stop at nothing to win her freedom and protect her free will.

    " Supernatural romantic comedy set in the barrio of El Paso, TX. 18-year-old Bug Smoot is having a bad day. Her landlord threatens to evict her, her greasy boss fires her, and someone's egged her car. At the car wash run by crush, Pesto, she discovers that a demon is responsible for the vandalism, and that (thanks to a bad loan signed by her deceased granddad) he's come to collect her soul. Coyote spirits, demons, djinns, glorified ghostbusters, Beelzebub, and old Scratch himself all make appearances as Bug battles for control over her destiny. "

    " I appreciate the author's attempt to write from the point of view of minority voices that are not represented enough in casual fiction. It seems like anytime a story comes from a non-white-male (so to speak) perspective, it's serious, heavy, and for older readers. So I was excited to read this funny, zany YA story. But it quickly became obvious that the storyline wasn't so interesting, the writing wasn't so great, and I found his representation of these teens almost offensively stereotyped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 2/2/2014

    " Witty and sassy, this novel tells the story of Bug, a half black half Latina basketball-playing, pizza-delivering 18-year-old; and how she fell in love while coming out on top with the devil over a deal her uncle made for a car. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/31/2014

    " I like the premise of the book more than its execution, but the premise is so awesome it hardly matters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/22/2014

    " Very fun book. Kind of reminds me of the TV show Reaper. The girl in the story must fight to regain her soul and her free will which was sold to the Devil when her now deceased Grandfather sold his soul for a Cadillac---and Bug was the co-signed if he defaulted. She gets a little help from a cute boy named Pesto and his Mama and uses her brains and her talents at basketball to work her way out of the situation. "

    " This one was pretty good. Very fast paced. The style of writing was a little trying, but it passed the time and was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xavier | 12/8/2013

    " It was an adventurous book with demons and the the devil. Creepy, but it was my type of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joeh | 12/7/2013

    " the reason why I chose this book is because when my reading teacher tolled us about this book it sounded interasting so I started reading the book and I found that this book is quite interasting. The genre of this book is pairnormal or fantisy but Im thinking more pairnormal. The setting where the book take plase is in "Bug" (the mean character) apartment and the apartment is two hundred sqare foot roach motel with half bath, no phone, no cadle, and no air conditioner. the mean character name is Bug Smoot how is eighteen year olded how is a black Tejanos. the hole book is about how bugs is going to get her soul back and along the way she meets the demon that has her soul they resolv the problom by getting her soul back. This book was quite good and I do reacamend people read this book. "

    " Feisty heroine who reacts to a number of different absurd plot twists thrown at her. Humorous and reminds me of Christopher Moore's A Dirty Job. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 8/28/2013

    " I'm flip flopping on whether this is three or four stars. Still processing. Hmmm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Cohen | 8/17/2013

    " Lots of fun & heroine with lots of spunk and attitude who fights instead of laying down and giving up. What more could you want? "

    " I think the book is not bad, honestly. But I am still on a I-don't-spend-a-minute-with-a-book-I-don't-crave-enough-trip. So, Bug, Beals and Pesto have to go after 109 pages. Forgive my lack of enthusiasm, Mr. Gill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 7/11/2013

    " While I enjoyed the story and the premise, I couldn't stand the dog and dude, and I didn't think Bug was all that awesome of a main character. I loved Pesto, and wasn't sure why he kept getting hit by Bug. Interesing story still. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 6/4/2013

    " okay so far this book is really funny! thank u david gill! u finally gave me a book with a strong female character! it always seems like female characters r so weak but not in this book. she is hard core and head strong! go Bug! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 10/31/2012

    " Had a fantastic quote: "The need to justify inhumanities is a particularly human trait." Pretty good book, it had a definite 'young adult' feel (as opposed to a 'literature' or 'mystery' or 'paperback' or any other genre). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 1/13/2012

    " Very fun book. The story starts out a little bumpy and the main character, Bug, is a little hard to take. She grew on me though, and I enjoyed the pace of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chalse | 1/1/2012

    " This book is very cool; I like it. I especially love how strong of a character Bug is and especially how she is able to show her soft side every once in a while, and I think my favorite character from this book might be Mita. She reminds me of someone I know. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 10/26/2011

    " I heard really good things about this book but I was unimpressed. I just never got into the story. It took me about 3 weeks to finish reading it and I ended up skimming the last quarter of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 10/2/2011

    " it jsut drug on and on "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daisy Contreras | 9/1/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 8/1/2011

    " Eunice (aka 'Bug') is on her own working as a pizza delivery driver in El Paso after her grandfather dies. Then she finds out her soul is in hock to the devil for the '58 Cadillac he left her. Snarky, supernatural fun. "

    " very fun and funny book. I love Bug Smoot! who says fighting demons has to be all sturm und drang? think Men In Black, only with demons from hell and a teen heroine with a mouth to match her attitude. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suz | 10/19/2010

    " Great quick-read YA book! The book was about a girl trying to keep the devil from getting her soul - a serious topic - but it was written in a funny, entertaining way. I would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 9/13/2010

    " Finally a teen heroine who's not afraid to speak her mind! I LOVED Bug Smoot's feistiness and was happy to go along for the ride to Hell and back. This is one zany adventure you don't want to miss! "

    " First few chapters - Average. More chapters, close to half of the book - Annoyed by the main character and the story didn't seem to progress, a lot of family flashback...bla bla bla..I skim through the pages and gave up. "
