This book is one of the few books i enjoyed reading. Logan, the main character, just died in a car crash and is now floating between heaven and earth. Logan always takes the easy way out, but this time he was told that his little sister is in danger and that Logan must somehow reach out to her before it’s too late. I found this book interesting, not only because the content was good, but because it brought up a new perspective regarding the afterlife. I think this book is great for someone that ...more

I was able to read EXIT POINT thanks to a student who shared his copy with me.

Logan is dead, although he isn't really sure at first. When he opens his eyes, he is surrounded by gray robed figures and swirling colors. He is being told that he was supposed to take Exit Point 5 but evidently took the easy way out at Exit Point 2. Exit Point 5 would have meant extending his life until 2066, however, his early departure ended things for him in 2004. Well, that's a bummer.

When he is visited by Gran,

A teen boy by the name of Logan was always good at knowing how to take the easy ways out of things. Until a night of partying leads him to something he can’t reverse, his death. As Logan headed home from a night of drinking he soon awoke to find out he had been in a brutal car accident. Confused and afraid he tries to make sense of everything with the help of his spiritual guide, that he had been dreaming about his whole life.
I didn’t really enjoy this book very much because I am not a big fan o

Logan, the main character, wakes up to find himself stuck between the living world a heaven. He has just died in a car accident and is warned that someone is harming his sister. He must go back to the living world, unable to be seen or heard by anyone, to save his sister. Exit Point provides a great new perspective on what happens and where one goes after death. Not only does it deal with the afterlife, but with family coping with death, as well as being abused or knowing someone that is being a ...more

Imagine being in a place where you aren't really alive but you aren't really dead..well at least it seems that way. Thats what Exit Point by Laura Langston is based on. The main character is Logan.A teenager who passes away due to a car accident. When Logan passes away he is not in heaven or hell he is just simply floating around. He feels helpless when he sees all the troubles his family is going through and all he can do is sit back and watch them suffer. Until he get an opportunity that can c ...more

I think that this book was really good becaouse it talks about "death is only the beginning". What I think the author means by that is that maybe there's another life. Some people think that death is the end but its not. It probably continues but in another way.

In this book a car accident takes place and the person died, then it takes you were the person that had the accident was when she was in a coma. When the time had past I notice that the person that died in the car accident didn't actually

"Exit Point" by Laura Langston is a compelling story continuation to Hannah's Touch, which is also by Laura Langston. Hannah's Touch was about Hannah's point of view on Logan's death of the car crash. But in "Exit Point" is about Logan's point of view on his journey in the afterlife. So the story talks about his life when he meets his grandmother in the afterlife and describes how he discovers that his little sister was being touched by their uncle. And he found out after he died in the car acc ...more

"Exit Point" is about a 16 year old teenage boy named Logan who takes exit point number two. This book was very interesting because it was Laura Langston's idea of what happens after one dies. She sees that everyone has many different opportunities in their life when they can die, it all depends if you want to. Logan was suppose to take exit point five, and die in his seventies, meaning he had four other near death experiences before then, but he took the second exit point and died in a car acci ...more

Laura Langston has written picture books and novels. She has always been fascinated with the concept of life after death and all things metaphysical. This is her first Orca Soundings. Laura lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

The story was start with a dream. From a man name Logan.He dreamed he dead.And he has see everything in black. In this first part of the book. I think I already knows what does the author wants to tell us about what. I think the author use this to tell us, although the world maybe borning. But you can't give up. You have to alive. You should be alive. You should be happy. Because maybe someone needs you. So everyone is important for the world. In the story, Logan dead in a traffic accident. And ...more

Logan, the main character, after a night of drinks, party and driving he figures out that he is dead. He had a car accident. With impression he wants to be back in the real world. As the time pass with his spiritual believes he ends in a conclusion that he was ment to die to save her sister.

This book is about spiritual life and the life after dead, if you are really into that I recommend it.

I get why some kids like this book. As a matter of fact, I read it because it was recommended to me by a couple students. And, admittedly, it's a fast read (very fast, actually -- I read it in less than an hour on the plane coming home from D.C.) and it's compelling: Logan makes a tragically poor choice and winds up dead only to learn that his sister desperately needs his help. Luckily for Logan, he has a guide in the afterlife who can teach him how to right a few wrongs before moving on. Simple ...more

This is one of the better books I have read. In this book the main character Logan dies and enters his after life. In his after life he gets some alarming news that his sister is in trouble but there is nothing he do about it.... so he thinks. I liked everything in this book. I would recommend this book to everyone.

The book, Exit Point, by Laura Langston, really related to me. This book connected to me the most. I felt the pain the main character was going through. I really wanted to go into the book and help the main character. The main charters name is Logan and he goes through dieing and seeing what has happened to his sister. He connected to the living. He always took the easy way out, that's why he ended up dead.

I would recommend this book to everyone because I believe that everyone can connect to thi

It was not as exiting as most of the books i have read lately but it was not bad either.
The book was based on a person learning a lesson of cause and effect, because he always took the easy way out of
situations or even normal things in his life.I like how the author put a big challenged in front of the main character to
show him what he was suppose to do and didn't do, but it all just goes back to one thing, because he always took
the easy way out some one else would have to suffer for it.

Logan is dreaming, or high, ... or is he really dead? When he meets his deceased Gran and she warns him of the terrible danger his little sister Amy is facing, Logan knows he must help her. But how? He's only a ghost.

Logan is dead, barely dead, but after he watches his funeral he finds out how his death at 16 will change things for the people in his life, especially for his 9 year old sister Amy. Can Logan use the limited time he has left to influence to save her from the terrible things that will happen; are happening to her?

This is part of the Orca Soundings series; designed for High School students with lower reading levels, this low level, high interest title would also be ok on a middle school library s

I really liked this book I was interested through out the whole book it felt different because it was not from a humans point of view it was from a ghost point I learned to like spending time with your family because his family missed him and he missed his family because when he found out he was dead he went to his funeral and he felt a lot of sorrow in his family if you read this book it has a lesson that you could if you would like to read this book you could find it in ms Stoddard room

This book is about Logan, who stupidly drinks and then drag races....instead of going right to heaven or hell he goes to a holding place where they show him how he messed up and how his sister and family and girlfriend are all altered because he took the easy way out. He goes in ghost form to try to save his little sister from a pedophile.

It's a quick read, very short, only a little over 100 pages. The theme of the book felt very preachy to me, and that's not my thing.

Exit Point is a really good book.Well that's my personal opinion. But if i had to recommend this book to people who likes fantasy stories. The book is basically based on this guy named...... who died and somehow he's telling the story of how he died what damages did he make by leaving through Exit Point #2.


After he died his little sister keeps getting bullied by kids at her school. She also getting abused by her uncle Herb..

By the time she hit Grade Four, Laura Langston knew she wanted to be a writer. So did the teachers. It was the persistent daydreaming and invisible friends that tipped them off. Since Laura grew up knowing no writers – and consequently didn’t know how to be one – she became a journalist instead. The trouble is, journalists are expected to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
