Croak by Gina Damico
Goodreads synopsis:

Fed up with her wild behavior, sixteen-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. 
But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than shovelling manure.
He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business.

She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. But Lex can’t stop her desire for justice — or is it vengeance? — 
whenever she encounters a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again. Will she ditch Croak and go rogue with her reaper skills?

This has been on the edges of my radar for AGES now, and I really want it. In fact, I want it so badly, that I've just clicked that wonderful-looking 'order' button (oops ;P). Technically it's still on the wishlist, seeing as it won't arrive now, probably until early next week!
It sounds like something a little different from the norm, so that should be really refreshing - and it's had great reviews (of the ones I've seen, anyway). I can't wait for it to arrive!

Let me know what's on your wishlist - sign up your post in the linky below, and of course, in the comments :)
