Nick and Allie don’t survive the car accident, but their souls don’t exactly get where they’re supposed to go 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 kids 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 souls, 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.

Nick and Allison die in the same accident and knock each other off the path to the light. They wake up still on Earth, but stuck on the ghostly side. They discover there...
I just finished Shusterman's charming paranormal tale Everlost. At first, I didn't think I'd like it. But, much like Nick and Allie I was pulled into the world of Everlost. Maybe if I'd read this book as a kid, I might not have found humor in it. But, I found it and enjoyed it. I couldn't help laugh...
This took some getting into. At first I thought this was a bit too juvenile for me, but I pushed through the first couple of chapters, and it was worth it. It was a cartoonishly funny yet dark. It was almost like watching an episode of Adventure Time but much darker (IMHO). I will definitely be read...
I have been really lousy when it comes to posting about my books here, lately. I blame it on school. I'm doing the full time work and full time school deal, hoping to get my MLIS (Masters of Library and Information Science) done by next May. I'm even taking my comprehensive exam in a week and a h...
