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

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

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

Logan, the main character, wakes up to find himself stuck between the living world and 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. The plot is one reason on why enjoyed reading this mysterious book. Another reason I enjoyed reading this was, it provides a great new perspective on what happens and where one goes after death. Not only does it deal with th ...more

"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

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 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

This one is a real page turner, kind of reminiscent of the movie _Ghost_.

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

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..

Hannah Hogan
I thought this book was perfect for me because it was kind of mystery like and puts you on the edge to see what will happen next.

This book was about a girl who died before it was time for her to. She died in a car accident. The young girl didn't know she was dead until she woke up the next day as a spirit. The only person that knew the reason why she died was her. She was a ghost protecting her sister from her uncle. He was a child molester. He was molesting molly her little sister.

Alyssa Haught pd.5-6 Exit point by: Laura Langston 9/10/09 i give it a 5

One major external conflict in this book was that he was dead and he didnt know what to do. He had a body but no soul cause he died in a car crash at a young age. Now he was lost and had no clue what to do it effected the book about his struggles going through death.

Ashley De los santos
this book is a good book is about a boy who has 5 ways to die. he dies in his 3 way i think and he dies by drinking and driving in a car crash and if he would've of never did that he would've died when he was 86 chocking in a green grape. I learned that i should never drink and drive at the same time.

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.
