Publisher Comments:

Riley has crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. She has picked up life where she left off when she was alive, living with her parents and dog in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. When shes summoned before The Council, she learns that the afterlife isnt just an eternity of leisure. Shes been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a possibly cute, seemingly nerdy boy whos definitely hiding something. They return to earth together for Rileys first assignment, a Radiant Boy whos been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But all of that was before he met Riley . . .

Review:

"Riley, who appeared in ghost form to her older sister, Ever, in Noël's bestselling Evermore, takes center stage in this middle-grade spinoff, first in a planned series. Having recently crossed over into the afterworld, Riley has reunited with her parents, who were killed in the same accident, but is having trouble adjusting. 'I'd do anything to go back home,' she admits. When she gets assigned to be a Soul Catcher, persuading dead people to 'cross the bridge and move on,' she is thrilled to return to Earth in spirit form, even if it means traveling with Bodhi, a 'dorky' teenage guide. As she and Bodhi help the deceased cross over (at one point, they are sucked into the grieving soul of a mother wrongly executed for her children's murders), the assignments help her, too. If Riley is bratty--a fact she realizes after viewing video recaps of her brief life ('Are these like--edited--or maybe even, um, you know, Photoshopped, or something?')--her wit, attitude, and maturation should have readers gladly following her into the second installment. Ages 9 — 12. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
