*Everlost-- Neal Shusterman

Nick and Allie don't survive the car accident...but their souls don't exactly get where they're supposed to get either. Instead, they're caught halfway between life and death, in a sort of limbo known as Everlost: a shadow of the living world, filled with all the things and places that no longer exist. It's a magical yet dangerous place where bands of lost children run wild and anyone who stands in the same place too long sinks to the center of the Earth. When they find Mary, the self-proclaimed queen of lost kids, Nick feels like he he's found a home. But Allie isn't satisfied spending eternity between worlds. Against all warnings, Allie begins learning the "Criminal Art" of haunting and ventures into dangerous territory, where a monster called the McGill threatens all the souls of Everlost.

I love Neal Schusterman’s Sci-fi. It’s my cuppa tea. I found myself pulled along by this story. I wanted to know what would happen, and boy, did stuff happen. It was enchanting to see this perspective on limbo, and it was comforting not to have Schusterman try and push religion into this story. I hope there will be a sequel, the ending made it seem like it could go either way. Everything was wrapped up just fine, but if he felt like it, he could keep going.

So, I have named this book a semi-Squeaky Book.
