Another terrific, unique book from Shusterman! I've been meaning to read this for ages and finally got to it via Playaway. Nick and Allie meet when their cars crash into each other and they're thrown from the vehicles, landing in a mysterious forest where a young boy seems to live all by himself. They soon discover that they're dead--but they're in Everlost, a sort of limbo between living and "going on to where you're going" (which is never spelled out as any kind of heaven or hell, but rather just the final destination after you die. But Everlost is here on earth, just kind of...faded from reality. Nick and Allie have to learn the rules--for example, they can't just walk anywhere, because if they step off the "dead spots" of ground then they'll sink into the earth! They soon meet other Everlights and get involved in kidnappings, gangs, pirates, monsters and other cool stuff--especially "skinjacking" (inhabiting the body of a living person!). A very neat book, with a sequel.
