Summary 

A fight over a pair of designer shoes by two h.s. roomies leads to an unfortunate accident- and only Hades, Lord of the Underworld, can help Shar and Meg. For a price.

“Holy smoke that book was funny!” -A Beautiful Madness

“Sirenz reminded me of a Shakespearean fiasco! Hilarious at times, especially when the unexpected happens… The Faery says- READ THIS BOOK!” -The Book Faery

About the Authors

Charlotte Bennardo sees story ideas all around her and has written them down on napkins, the bottoms of her shoes, paper bags–even her arms. When she works at her Bridgewater, NJ office, she pens YA, MG, and adult novels, if she can hide long enough from her three sons, husband, needy cat, and demanding squirrel. Along with Natalie Zaman, she is the co-author of the Sirenz series (Flux).
