Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are marvelous. Its quiet and peaceful. You cant get sick or any older. Curious to see new paintings by Picasso? Swing by one of Elsewheres museums. Need to talk to someone about your problems? Stop by Marilyn Monroes psychiatric practice.
     Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she has died. It is a place so like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backward from the day of her death until she becomes a baby again and returns to Earth. But Liz wants to turn sixteen, not fourteen again. She wants to get her drivers license. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. And now that shes dead, Liz is being forced to live a life she doesnt want with a grandmother she has only just met. And it is not going well. How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward?
     This moving, often funny book about grief, death, and loss will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin is a moving book about life, death and acceptance. In my opinion it’s a great book for anyone who likes a sad story but then takes a twist towards the other side. Liz, the main character is taken from the earth at only sixteen. She wakes up on a boat where Liz is told she is going to “Elsewhere” but Liz can’t figure out how she got on the boat and why she is going there. Liz must learn to accept the fact that she is no longer on earth and now on Elsewhere where you go after you have died. You’re sure to love Elsewhere if you love a page turner and a book you can’t put down.
