Precocia: The Sixth Circle of Heck by Dale E. Basye, Bob Dob
Dale E. Basye sends Milton and Marlo to Precocia, the circle reserved for kids who grow up too fast, for their latest hilarious escapade in Heck.
When Bea "Elsa" Bubb, the Principal of Darkness, tells Milton and Marlo Fauster they've gotten too big for their britches, she sends them to Precocia, the circle of Heck for smartypants kids who grow up too fast. There, the children learn adult jobs. William the Kid teaches bill collection. Mozart teaches commercial jingles. And all the students are forced to act, dress, and talk like little adults. Soon, the Fausters realize that Precocia's vice principals Napoleon and Cleopatra want more than to hasten adulthoodthey seem to want to eliminate childhood altogether. Can Milton and Marlo figure out their plan in time to stop it?
Heck is a school in the afterlife where bad kids go for all eternity, or until they turn eighteen, whichever comes first. As in Dante's Inferno, there are nine circles of Heck, based on kids' various vices.

I have the first Heck book and I didn’t even know there were a total of six of them! I am in shock and so super excited to go back now and read them all!
“So life is like shampoo and death is the conditioner.” Marlo whispered to the girl next to her.
Milton and Marlo are still up to no good and this time it lands them at Precocia, the circle of Heck where they send kids, just like them, who have grown up too fast. In Precocia, they are expected to dress, talk, and act like little grown-ups and their vice principals, Napoleon and Cleopatra (not joking) would see childhood totally gone anyways. The kids just have to find a way to escape and not drown or get eaten by the giant squid underneath Precocia. Once out, where will they go and what will they do?
I don’t want to give too much away about this book because everything that Milton and Marlo do is what keeps you reading. Their adventures together and close calls bring so much adventure and this book truly is really hard to put down.
