Among the recent spate of YA books dealing with the afterlife is this gem. Zevin creates a world beyond this one without bogging down in theology. Fifteen-year-old Liz Hall, the victim of a hit-and-run driver, wakes up on a ship to Elsewhere. Life on Elsewhere seems to be the opposite of life here; you age in reverse until, as a baby, you once again sail to Earth. Cassandra Morris lives up to her fine reputation with this intriguing story. Her Lizzie comes across as complex and believable, communicating a whole range of emotions as she comes to terms with her new life and lets go of her life on Earth.
