Trailer Reveal: Hellhole by Gina Damico

Hello, hellish fiends! You've all heard of Gina Damico, haven't you? She's the author of the not-so-grim reaper-filled Croak, Scorch, and Rogue. I, unfortunately, have yet to read them, but I have heard excellent, fun things. Anyway, the reason I'm talking about Gina is because she has a new book publishing soon (well, early next year)! Hellhole! And it has a trailer, which I am going to show you...very shortly!

Title: Hellhole
Author: Gina Damico
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
Publishing Date: January 6, 2015
Pages: 368

Geeky, squeaky-clean Max Kilgore only has one dirty habit: digging for fossils. One day, to his horror, his shovel strikes not upon a dinosaur bone, but a pit to hell—and out of it comes a devil. Specifically, the kind of devil who eats a lot of junk food, watches a lot of reality television, plays a lot of video games, and refuses to leave Max’s basement. But evil is still evil, no matter what form it takes. And Max has to find a way to comply with the demands of the big red menace, lest he lay waste to everyone and everything Max cares about.

With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the dark side, Max goes in search of a new abode for his unwanted guest. Finding a place where he can reside in luciferian luxury isn’t easy, but Max has strong motivation: his mother, whose terminal illness the devil promises to cure if Max gives him what he wants. Lore has her doubts about making a deal with the devil, but Max will stop at nothing to save his mom. And pretty soon, he’s doing things the good kid he once was would never dream of doing. Clearly, hanging around with a devil is a bad influence. But how can Max get rid of the guy without incurring the wrath of hell?

Welcome, devils and demons, to Hellhole.

Gina Damico grew up under four feet of snow in Syracuse, New York. She received a degree in theater and sociology from Boston College, and she has since worked as a tour guide, transcriptionist, theater house manager, scenic artist, movie extra, office troll, retail monkey, yarn hawker and breadmonger. She is the author of the grim-reapers-gone-wild books of the Croak trilogy (CroakScorch, and Rogue), published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and the upcoming Hellhole (January 2015). She lives in Western Massachusetts with her husband, two cats, one dog, and while she has never visited hell in person, she has spent countless waking hours at the Albany Regional Bus Terminal, which is pretty darn close.
