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 onger 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 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.

    I'm still reading it and will update when I'm done. So far I love it. I got it at my school and decided, eh, why not. I really enjoy it I understand the confusion and weirdness they are dealing with and think it's interesting. I wonder how it ends but I promise not to spoil anything for you guys. Hope you get a chance to read it!

        The book was ok and had many twists. The plot can be slow. The book itself can be boring. Leif and Allie are well developed. The book would probably get three of five stars. Overall it was ok.
