Ladies, this book is just fun. I read it on summer break, which is perfect, as the main character Chelsea is just starting her summer break too. She is stuck in the past in two ways – she’s a little too involved with her ex-boyfriend, and she works at a historical reenactment park. There is some friendly (and not-so-friendly) competition with the park across the street, and, of course, a boy with some serious potential. If only he didn’t work for the enemy…
Neal Shusterman can think up some crazy things! I enjoyed this journey into Everlost with Nick and Allie, who are headed “toward the light” following a car crash when they are bumped out of the way and land in Everlost. Shusterman creates a fascinating world that is sort of Peter Pan’s Neverland meets Purgatory. The last 50 pages are when it gets really good.
