Allie and Nick didn't survive in the car crash.Nick and Allie both saw the light but knocked into each other and fell off course into a place called Everlost. Soon after, Nick and Allie met a boy named Leif who they found in the woods also stuck in between life and death. Nick and Allie wanted to leave the woods and find their family to see if they survived the crash. Leif decided to also leave but was scared that they would run into the McGill, an Everlost monster.Instead of finding McGill, they found a civilization of kids under the power of Mary Hightower, an Everlost queen. Nick and Lief love Mary, but Allie does not. Allie doesn't want anyone to be the boss of her. Allie leaves Mary's kingdom and soon discovers that she has special powers that will cause her to have a run in with the powerful McGill.
I rate this fiction book 5 out of 5. I thought the author was very creative. It was amazing how she could come up with the characters and the different scenes.It felt like I was actually in the book.

Good review - I just finished this book, and thought you had a good summary of events. I, too, was amazed at Shusterman's ability to create such an amazing new "universe" and fill it with such imaginative details!
