Life after death??


By: Gabrielle Zevin

Genre:  YA fantasy

Pages: 277

Published: 2007

Read: November

3.5 out of 5

What happens after you die? Zevin writes of Elsewhere. A place where you live, work, and play – only after you die. It’s a story of 15 year old, Liz, who ends up in Elsewhere after a tragic accident.  The story is cute, sometimes funny (want to learn Canine or Catus? Go to Elsewhere), heart-breaking and even peacefully. It's not groundbreaking writing, but I felt Zevin wrote in a way that will have teens thinking…what it’s like, who should I be, where do I want to go, do my actions now matter?  It's a nonthreatening view of life and death and life after death. This would be a great selection for teen book groups.
