Seventeen-year-old Rogue knows all suicides become Death’s reapers. How does he have the skinny on this? He offed himself in 1976, two days after driving the car that accidentally killed his girlfriend Lily. So when Rogue stops Emerson, a girl who looks exactly like Lily, from overdosing, it lands him on Death’s bad side. Not that Death necessarily has a good side.
As punishment, Death forces Rogue to spend one week inside a living body. Within this week, Rogue must gain Emerson’s trust and convince her not to kill herself, or Death will steal her soul and torture her for his own amusement.
The ticking clock bullies Rogue to push Emerson out of her comfort zone, only to discover a dark past leading her quest to die. Struggling with his own fears and memories, Rogue never expects Emerson to start falling in love with him. Or even worse, for the first time in decades, realizing he feels the same for her. Seeing the opportunity to manipulate and punish Rogue further, Death offers to let Emerson become a reaper if Rogue now encourages her to seek him.

Rogue wrestles with what to do: Save this girl’s life in a way he never could for Lily? Or encourage her to suicide, so they can be together forever as reapers?
