Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Interesting concept

It made me a bit uneasy to read about children who lost their way between life and death. But the storyline was well thought out and talently written. I liked how some things crossed over like birthday cakes and the twin towers. There was a fortune cookie twist that was also a fun idea. I think the thing I liked most -- and what I was most worried about -- was that the ending was good. It was clean and satisfying. I already knew there were sequels to this book, so I was concerned that Shusterman would leave these kids wandering in the in-between forever. But he cleaned it up real well and I will probably give the sequel a try as well.

A Surprise Gem

I must say that when I first read the synopsis for Everlost I wasn't sure it would be in my literary wheelhouse. All this talk of "bands of lost children" brought visions of children's literature à J.M. Barry. Turns out, it is much deeper and multi-layered than I could ever have guessed.

My nieces and nephews have me on a YA fiction reading marathon and I loved Shusterman's "Unwind" books so much that I wanted to try out some more of his works. I found "Everlost" to be a creative take on the afterlife theme with the various factions of rogues (both obvious and clandestine) and heroes vying for control of the hearts and minds of its departed minors.

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and recommend it to any YA fan.
