The Wish List by Eoin Colfer

First sentence:

"Meg and Belch were doing a job."


"Meg Finn is in trouble. Unearthly trouble.

Meg's soul is up for grabs as Heaven and Hell try every sneaky trick imaginable to claim it. Helping a lonely old man complete tasks on his wish list is her only chance. But even if she takes that chance, will she really have enough points to face up to St. Peter?" -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this fantasy about a young girl who learns about helping people. I especially liked the interactions between Meg and Lowrie and between St. Peter and Beezlebub.
