Nick and Allie don’t survive the car accident…but their souls don’t exactly get where they’re supposed to go either. Instead, they’re caught halfway between life and death, in a sort of limbo known as Everlost: a shadow of the living world, filled with all the things and places that no longer exist. It’s a magical, yet dangerous place where bands of lost children run wild and anyone who stands in the same place too long sinks to the center of the Earth.

When they find Mary, the self-proclaimed queen of lost kids, Nick feels like he’s found a home, but Allie isn’t satisfied spending eternity between worlds. Against all warnings, Allie begins learning the “Criminal Art” of haunting, and ventures into dangerous territory, where a monster called the McGill threatens all the souls of Everlost.

In this imaginative novel, Neal Shusterman explores questions of life, death, and what just might lie in between.

    " Yet another great and creative book by neal shusterman! He never ceases to amaze me. The ending of this book is kind of sad. Thw whole book is filled with strange, lovely moments and heartwrenching sadness. It really annoys me how it switches perspectives at just the wrong moments. Still, I reccomend this book to anyone who is willing to have a bit of fun! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rae | 1/20/2014

    " Overall I found this book very underwhelming. It has a bit of a fairytale like quality to it, but there never really seems to be much of a sense of urgency to it and I found the characters a bit flat. "

    " I would recommend my book "Everlost" by Neal Shusterman to a friend because it's a good "sitting on the edge" of your seat book and it's exciting at all times of the story. Neal Shusterman gave many quotes in this book that gave evidence to that. He writes, "The earth had her like quicksand and she was going down. She tried to scream but, no sound came out."(page 67). He also wrote "although Lief and Allie tried to fight them, there were just too many. Lief was plunging into another barrel, kicking and screaming ans shloshing brine across the floor, until they nailed on the lid."(page 148). The last quote was "Allie swung her hand with all the strengh she could muster, and slapped Mary across the face."(page 159). In the first quote, Neal decribed how the road just swallowed the character, Allie, up and described how scary it was for her. Me as the character felt scared for Allie because Neal described it so well and how he described the road sucking her up just like quicksand. Not only is it a "sitting on the edge of your seat" scene but, it is good descriptive writing. In the second quote, he described the exact same thing as he did in the first but, from the second character's, Lief, point of view. It was just as scary, if not, scarier. Finally, in the last quote Neal was describing how hard Allie slapped Mary(another character) in the face and that she really must have wanted to hit her for a good reason. In the book "Everlost", Neal Shusterman used great descriptive writing and made the book exciting at all times and a "sitting on the edge of your seat" book. "

    " I love Neal Shusterman. Every book I've read from him has been amazing. This one was no exception. The character development was particularly impressive in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/31/2013

    " Quite an interesting view on what happens to children (us) when we don't make it to the light at the end of the tunnel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael T | 11/30/2013

    " I didn't like this book. It wasn't interesting and I couldn't picture the setting at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Hernandez | 11/20/2013

    " This is a great book! I have read it a million times and it never gets old! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruby | 11/9/2013

    " Just as I was getting to the end of the book and thinking: Okay, I'm ready to move onto another series the final 40 or so pages changed my mind. I'm definitely interested in seeing what happens in the last two books. Nice amount of twists you don't find out until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen Cole | 10/31/2013

    " I think I liked it enough to read the next one. But I think it's definitely aimed at a younger age group. Middle/high school. It was pretty good though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/14/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. The premise sounds a little strange but I thought it was really imaginative and really well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Miller | 7/22/2013

    " Amazing book, it's a purgatory story of children lost in the world between heaven and hell. Enjoyed it very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ava Swiniarski | 7/4/2013

    " It was interesting and it kept my attention for most of the time. But im not very into Fantasy books, so for me this book was pretty good to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanyia | 6/30/2013

    " so much better than I thought it would be, glad I gave it a chance "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey Leidig | 6/18/2013

    " Absolutely adore the way Shusterman thinks of everything, leaves few questions unanswered, but still leaves me wanting more. This books did feature younger characters but is still very readable for me, being 15. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mathew White | 6/15/2013

    " Justin and I finished the first book in the Everlost series last night, and we really enjoyed it. The book starts off a little heavy, but Neal Shusterman does an amazing job with it. Justin is 11 and can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Falkner | 12/7/2012

    " this series is awesome its about a life after death but not all the way alieve.... the first of 3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 8/18/2012

    " Good kids fantasy novel. Interesting but not great characters, but the plot was really original. I had no idea where the story was going to go. Again, if anyone is looking for a light, fun read, highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Radon Andersen | 5/27/2012

    " I really liked this--and the rest of the trilogy. It's recommended for 12 and up, but I would say 14 and up--death is a hard topic for young people to understand, and as the trilogy goes on, especially in book three, it's pretty dark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D. McAtee | 6/28/2011

    " Very interesting book...a sort of Lord of the Flies set in Purgatory. Nothing overtly creepy has happened yet but you can hear it in the walls so to speak. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Abbie | 6/22/2011

    " this book sucks! i hardly even want to give it one star! "

    " Neal Shusterman is a great storyteller. Everlost is an imaginative story about kids lost in a ghost world. Somewhere between the living and the light, these kids try to figure out where they are, and how to get where they are going. Watch out for the McGill and the Sky Witch. "
