3.5 Stars“There are mysteries in Everlost. Some of them are wonderful, and others scary. They should all be explored, though- perhaps that's why we're here: to experience the good and the bad that Everlost has to offer.”Everlost is a great story full of imagination and an abundance of different characters including Pirates, Collectors of kids, a monster and a haunter. This is a great book for middle grade and young adults alike. There are so many interesting things and action throughout it keeps your attention.Neil Shusterman has an uncanny imagination and the new world he has brought to life is a very different take on what happens after you die. Nick and Allie didn’t quite make it to where they were supposed to go after they died, instead they end up in Everlost an in-between place. Lief has been alone in the forest they wake up in and bands with them for a journey to discover the mysteries of Everlost. It is interesting all the different things that end up in Everlost things that were once loved and died or were ruined including a few significant disasters of history.I really enjoyed how the author let us in on some of the mysteries of the world by reading excerpts from books written by Mary Hightower self-proclaimed expert on Everlost. This is different from most MG/YA books in that the world is one between life and death but it is an adventure all the same.
