Heck: Where The Bad Kids Go, by Dale E. Basye (Random House, 2008)

A bizarre accident kills Marlo Fauster and her brother Milton, sending them to Heck, the horrible afterlife where they’re tormented for their sins on Earth. Their classmates are cruel, their teachers range from Lizzie Borden to Richard Nixon, the food is revolting, and the principal is truly evil. But Marlo and Milton aren’t taking the prospect of eternity in Heck lying down, and they immediately start plotting escape. But can anyone really win free of a place like this? Alternately thought-provoking and darkly comic, Heck: Where The Bad Kids Go is a whimsical, strange sort of story.
