I had Everlost by Neal Shusterman sitting on my shelf for quite a while. I was intrigued by the premise but worried that I would be creeped out by the book or that it would make me sad. In this book Nick and Allie are in a car crash and both are headed down the tunnel towards the light when they bump into one another and fall out of the tunnel. They wake up nine months later in a beautiful forest. A kid is there and explains to them that they are in a kind of in-between realm. They are no longer alive, but they did not get where they were going so they are now doomed to exist in this realm. Both Nick and Allie are desperate to get home and check on the rest of their family to see if they survived the crash. They set out on an adventure to move across a world where the only solid ground is any spot there is a dead spot...the place a person died. On their way, they hear about a terrible monster who preys on kids like them. This book is an incredibly imaginative story. The author manages to write about a topic that could be quite uncomfortable in such a way that the reader is taken in by the story and racing to find out what will happen next. The ending is an unexpected twist and I was glad to be left with such a sense of hope and a desire to read the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to young adults. Because it deals with the subject of where people go after death, I think the concepts are a little too mature for middle grade readers. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the next creative story from this author.
