Skinjacker Trilogy #02: Everwildby Neal Shusterman
Synopses & Reviews
Everlost, the limbo land of dead children, is at war. Nick the “Chocolate Ogre” wants to help the children of Everlost reach the light at the end of the tunnel, but Mary Hightower, self-proclaimed queen of lost children and dangerous fanatic, is determined to keep Everlost’s children trapped within its limbo for all eternity. Meanwhile, Allie the Outcast travels home to seek out her parents and is tempted by the seductive thrill of skinjacking the living—until she learns a shocking secret: Those who skinjack are not actually dead. This luminous sequel to Everlost, which Orson Scott Card called “marvelously inventive...and magically beautiful,” deftly examines life, death, and how the choices we make define ourselves.
Going against Mary Hightower's wishes, Nick, "the chocolate ogre," is slowly trying to reach every kid in Everlost to hand each and every one a coin, which will release them from Everlost. Mikey McGill and Allie have joined a band of skinjackers who have more of an impact on the living world then any other inhabitant of Everlost. Except Mikey can't skinjack and Allie can - and there is a very good reason: Allie is not actually dead.
