Publisher Comments:

There was the rumor of a beautiful sky witch, who soared across the heavens in a great silver balloon. And there were whispers of a terrible ogre made entirely of chocolate, who lured unsuspecting souls with that rich promising smell, only to cast them down a bottomless pit from which there was no return.

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. 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. Traveling in the memory of the Hindenburg, Mary is spreading her propaganda and attracting Afterlights to her cause at a frightening speed.

Meanwhile, Allie the Outcast travels home to seek out her parents, along with Mikey, who was once the terrifying monster the McGill. Allie is tempted by the seductive thrill of skinjacking the living, until she learns a shocking secret: Those who skinjack are not actually dead.

Critically acclaimed author Neal Shusterman writes a book about life, death, and how the choices we make define ourselves in this luminous sequel to Everlost, which Orson Scott Card called "marvelously inventive...and magically beautiful."

Synopsis:

Nick ?the Chocolate Ogre? and Mary Hightower battle for the fate of Everlost in the thrilling second book in Neal Shusterman's Skinjacker Trilogy.

Synopsis:

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.andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andlt;BRandgt;Allie is not actually dead.

This sequel to _Everlost_ was pretty good, but not nearly as well-paced as the previous book. It's quite long, and while a lot happens, most of it feels like a set-up for the third book. The sense of wonder and discovery just somehow isn't as awesome in this one, either; the land of Everlost feels in some ways like old hat, even as the characters (and the reader) learn more about "skinjacking" (hopping into a living person's body) and about the mysterious wind that blows harder the closer one gets to the Mississippi River.
I'm looking forward to the final book in the trilogy; I just wish this one didn't feel QUITE so much like a middle book.
