Allie and Nick got into a car crash. Neither of them survives and they don’t grasp what happened to them immediately. Up until a boy their age tells them what and where they are. They are in a world between heaven and hell, trapped in a limbo called Everlost. Nick adjusts to this new life in the afterlife. Sadly, Allie is not satisfied and wants to be alive again. Allie does whatever it takes to rejoin the living even if she must take another body.

I read this novel when I was younger and was intrigued with the plotline and the contrasting characters. I found myself finishing the novel quickly as it was a small novel but there is a lot of plot. Later on I decided to reread the novel recently and found myself enjoying the novel more and more.
