Book Review: Everlost by Neal Shusterman
They find they are neither living nor spirit; they now exist in Everlost. Learning to cope with their new state of being, they arrive in New York City, where a band of lost children have taken up residence in the Twin Towers, which still stand tall in Everlost. Led by Mary, the Queen of Snot, threatened by the Great McGill and his pirate band, these children have come to accept that this is where they belong and will always be. But Nick and Allie know there must be something—somewhere—else, and they are determined to find out what and where that is. A quirky sense of humor pervades, which helps to lighten what would otherwise be a disturbing concept. But the overall message that there is existence after life and purpose to that existence and a destination when one is finally ready for it is one of comfort. For anyone who has lost a friend or loved one at an early age, this is a good read.
Everlost is a fantasy book published in by the young adult author Neal Shusterman. The story is the first in the Skinjacker trilogy that takes place in Everlost, the place between life and death. Nick and Allie, who have just awoken in a ghostly parallel to the real world, are saved by a boy named Lief, who tells them that they are called "Afterlights" who cannot be seen by living. They are somewhat like ghosts, and retain the exact appearance they had when they died. There, they meet Mary Hightower, the "mother" of Afterlights who keeps many Afterlights safe, and is the author of hundreds of books about living in Everlost.
They want their lives back, and their search for a way home will take them deep into the uncharted areas of Everlost. But the longer they stay, the more they forget about their pasts. And if all memory of home is lost, they may never escape this strange, terrible world. Video Feature.
