Seventeen-year-old Trevor Loomis's high school is literally Hell. In an unfortunate theological snafu, Trevor finds himself at Satan's Prep in the bowels of Hell after he dies choking on a Cheesy Crisp. At Satan's Prep, Trevor is forced through Nine Class Periods of Hell, a take on the classic Circles of Hell. From First Period (homeroom, where students' names are mispronounced a billion ways) to Ninth Period (an assembly, where students stand under spotlights and make speeches in their underwear), Trevor just wants to pass the semester with a 61 percent humanity level and transfer to Purgatory. But when Persephone Plumm shows up at Satan's Prep, Trevor starts to think that maybe Hell isn't so bad after all. But could Trevor's best friend Steve be right -- could Persephone be a succubus? Will Trevor ever be able to transfer out of Satan's Prep -- and now that Persephone has arrived, will he even want to?
Gabe Guarente's "Satan's Prep" is a clever, engrossing graphic novel for young adults about the classic struggle through adolescence seen in a new way -- high school as Hell! Trevor and his band of misfit classmates are relatable and funny, and this book is sure to impress both devoted graphic novel fans and teens new to the genre
