Benjamin Griffel | 5 comments I am looking for a book series about a teen boy who is trapped in the afterlife who is trying to get back home. He isn't dead, but the other characters are. Characters he makes friends with in the book include a pretty girl, a magician, and a daredevil. I think the character wears a bruce springsteen tshirt and I remember the girl was from the 60s and her favorite show was "Get Smart". In this world the afterlife lies along a great river and souls can appear anywhere along the river. In the last book they make it to the source of the river which helps them somehow but I can't remember how. This series is most likely from the 1990s thought I am not 100% sure. I read it in the 90s at least.

I'm assuming this isn't one of the books from Riverworld, correct? To Your Scattered Bodies Go is the first book in the series. If not, I hope someone knows what it is and ids it quickly, because I'd really like to read it.

Benjamin Griffel | 5 comments That does sound similar but is definitely not it. The main character of the story I am looking for was contemporary to the US in the 80s 90s.
