#193 - "Everlost" by Neal Shusterman

Title: Everlost
Author: Neal Shusterman
Series: Skinjacker, Book 1

Nick and Allie don't survive the car accident...but their souls don't exactly get where they're supposed to get either. Instead, they're caught halfway between life and death, in a sort of limbo known as Everlost: a shadow of the living world, filled with all the things and places that no longer exist. It's a magical yet dangerous place where bands of lost children run wild and anyone who stands in the same place too long sinks to the center of the Earth.

When they find Mary, the self-proclaimed queen of lost kids, Nick feels like he's found a home. But Allie isn't satisfied spending eternity between worlds. Against all warnings, Allie begins learning the "Criminal Art" of haunting and ventures into dangerous territory, where a monster called the McGill threatens all the souls of Everlost.

In this imaginative novel, Neal Shusterman explores questions of life, death, and what just might lie in between.

My rating: 5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I loved it! The story was great - I couldn't put it down, the characters were fun, the second half of the book was hilarious & the world the author created was amazing! I loved how he had included real events in the book! Also, two of the main things that happened in the end I really didn't expect to happen, so there were surprises, which I love in a book! I highly recommend this book!
