Synopsis via Goodreads:
The assignment:
Collect lifestones from humans after they die.
Rebellious, sixteen-year-old Naomi craves a normal life, but unfortunately, she’s a Grim by birth. That’s right, she sees dead people and hoards their living essence in a stone. Not a fun occupation.
In order to be good at her job, she must live among human teenagers for weeks at a time. But Naomi soon becomes attached to the kids she’s been assigned to watch over. And knowing that these teens are gonna die under less than ideal circumstances, she has the opportunity to prevent their deaths from occurring. Only one big problem—interfering with death is the worst crime a Grim can commit. If she intervenes, she’ll put herself and her family in danger.
Naomi must make the hardest choice of her career, go against the sacred covenant or watch her new friends walk blindly to their deaths.
Only one thing is for certain—Naomi has a grim knack for finding trouble and she’s about to break all the rules...

Review:

Tiffany Nicole Smith creates a wonderful and rich world in Naomi Grim. The land of Nowhere is dark and complex and bursting with character. Smith takes is through twists and turns in a society on the brink of political unrest.

Naomi is a sweet and likeable character. Her older brother is forever telling her she doesn't have the heart of a Grim, and honestly that's what makes her so great. Her heart makes her stand out and let's you connect with her.

While I loved Naomi I must admit that I spent a large amount of time wanting to punch some of the other characters in the nose, especially her brother Bram. Although I may not have liked many characters besides Naomi it goes to show how well Smith writes to elicit such strong reactions to her characters.

I was engrossed while reading Naomi Grim. I started reading at 11pm and didn't put it down until I finished the book. I was disappointed that I didn't have the next book to further read about Naomi's adventures.

A wonderful story about life, death, social castes and rebellion.
