Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are marvellous. It’s quiet and peaceful. Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she has died. It is a place so like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backward from the day of her death until she becomes a baby again and returns to Earth. But Liz wants to turn sixteen, not fourteen again. How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward?
We’re definitely not crying. Nope. Not at all. It’s just our, um, allergies. RIGHT?! We know how emotional this book is, and if you’ve somehow not managed to read it in the 10 years since its first release, now’s your opportunity to get your hands on it. You won’t regret it.
