Title: Everlost
   Author: Neal Shusterman
   Release Date: July 10th, 2012

     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 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 Stance:

     Neal Shusterman was one of the authors that I started reading (Unwind to be exact) and I am loving it more and more. The book is great, and what I love most about Unwind is that the book deals with more issues, more life questions than what a normal young adult book would deal with. Shusterman does a great job with weaving characters together, and showing the imperfections of humanity and society. I love Shusterman's work, and the more I am reading Unwind I find that I am lost and put deep in his world.

     Everlost has been on my list for a long world and I was going to use it as a way to get into Neal Shusterman's work. Furthermore, Everlost struck me as an odd concept. The concept of something lost between reality and heaven/hell. It's a world in which takes the children if they stop moving for too long, and I am looking at this book wondering what one has to do to escape. As well, when Annie goes into haunting it makes me wonder just what the true meaning of haunting is, and what Shusterman is trying to convey and the message this book holds between it's covers.
