Neal Shusterman never fails to come up with clever plots and alternate worlds. This book takes you into the ALMOST afterlife. In other words, you haven't quite made it to the afterlife yet. Souls are stuck in a kind of limbo between life and heaven, but it's not purgatory. Some may stay there forever, but you find out later that some move on. In the meantime, Everlost can be a dangerous place.

Nick and Allie mysteriously arrive in Everlost. It's almost the same world they came from, but with all the places that no longer exist in the real world. Bands of lost children run wild, and if you stay in one place too long, you will be sucked into the earth. There is also the terrible "McGill" to stay away from. They find "Mary," the unofficial leader of the shadow world. Nick is happy to stay with her and her groups of lost souls, but Allie has more adventurous ideas and wants to learn the art of haunting and skinjacking.

Shusterman is always imaginative, clever, and creative. There were one or two things that were rather predictable, but overall, it was a unique adventure fantasy. Everlost is the first in the Skinjacker trilogy. I don't know if I will get to the rest, but they would be worth my time.
