Gray McCarter is a pretty popular guy. In fact, he's so popular he's attracted the attention of Alpha High School's newest student, Alice Westerly. She's cute, witty, friendly and Death. Well, Interim Death. Yikes. When a new God lends Alice the power of death itself in the form of an object called the Death Coin, a curious anomaly brings her to high school and to the one known as Gray McCarter. Their fates intertwine, especially as mysterious enemies try to claim the Death Coin for themselves. The bodies will pile up. You'd think staying alive would be easy with Death on your side. Or would that make dying easier? Uh-oh.
