Heaven Looks a Lot Like the Mall Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When 16-year-old Tessa suffers a shocking accident in gym class, she finds herself in heaven (or what she thinks is heaven), which happens to bear a striking resemblance to her hometown mall. In the tradition of It's a Wonderful Life and The Christmas Carol, Tessa starts reliving her life up until that moment. She sees some things she'd rather forget, learns some things about herself she'd rather not know, and ultimately must find the answer to one burning question--if only she knew what the question was.

Written in sharp, witty verse, Wendy Mass crafts an extraordinary tale of a spunky heroine who hasn't always made the right choices, but needs to discover what makes life worth living.

Synopsis:

Written in accessible free verse, this poetic novel follows a disillusioned teenager who, after being hit in the head by a ball in gym class, finds herself floating up to what she thinks is heaven.
