Book: Everlost by Neal Shusterman
Genre: YA paranormal/science fiction
From: the library
The first of yet another Neal Shusterman series. In this one, we are introduced to Nick and Allie, both of whom are in a fatal accident in the first pages of the book, and as they are "going toward the light" they bump each other and are thrown off their course. They end up in Everlost.
What they find there is a community that reminded me much of Lord of the Flies. (Which is fun because that book is even referred to by the characters themselves!) Nick and Allie are forced to figure out how to survive in this new realm along with discovering who is telling them the truth and who is not. There's some pretty tough things that go on here, some pretty mean characters and some pretty intense moments. Yes, maybe even a little scary.
But it's a great story that once again, I loved. Things get all twisty and turney which means in the end, you are left anxious for the next book, which is even out already! It's called Everwild. And the third one, Everfound, is in the works.
Four Shusterman books down, a whole lot to go!
Bottom line: I enjoyed it a lot.
Read This Book!
