Meg Finn dies at the age of 14, ending the miserable life of petty crime she was driven to after her mother died and left her to her shiftless father. Normally, her sins would send her straight to hell. But before her death she carried out one selfless act, and now St. Peter and the devil are fighting over her soul. Is she good--or evil? Given one last chance to save her own soul, Meg must help a bitter old man, the very man she once tried to rob, fulfill his dreams and learn to love life again. At the same time, she must avoid the demon sent by the devil to deliver her to hell. This riveting story is driven by James Wilby's outstanding performance. His vocalizations of the old man and young girl, both Irish, are authentic, and his creativity with otherworldly characters is expert. J.M.S. Winner of 2004 ALA/ YALSA Recording
