Elsewhere is my favourite book of all time. I've read a lot of books in my days, and this is the book that I keep coming back to.

I'm glad I read it when I was younger, however, as I think if I were to pick it up as an adult it wouldn't quite speak to me the way it did then. Despite no longer being a teenager, however, this book makes me bawl my eyes out every single time I read it.

Zevin knows how to make you think without you realising she's doing so. She raises questions of life and death and love, as well as what happens when we age, how we can grow out of love and how experiences and memories really influence our age.

Her writing is gorgeous--very precise and never entering the minds of her characters. She shows us what's happening and allows us to make our own inferences and come to our own realisations.

This book makes me feel hopeful and in love and naive all over again. I own two physical copies in addition to my kindle edition just so I can force people to read it. It's an easy read, and well worth the time.

Elsewhere was a wonderful read. The storyline revolved upon the subject of the afterlife. Elizabeth , the main character, has recently died and must learn to live in Elsewhere. Elsewhere is where all the dead people end up and where the people age backwards until they are seven days old and are shipped back to Earth to start a new life. Elizabeth must come to terms that she will never be able to do the things she has been waiting for, as she died at the young age of 15. Without having been able to even go to prom Elizabeth must learn to get used to Elsewhere with the help of her new friends.and relatives. This book has shown that death does not result in the end but a new beginning. This book showed that you have to learn to live with your current circumstances even if those circumstances are not that good. Elizabeth was thrust into this new life without even having been able to complete most of her life goals. She learned that she must make the best out of every situation and that is what she was able to do. Elizabeth was able to live on even if she was surrounded with new people and not knowing her surroundings. Elizabeth was able to find happiness there and she was finally able to be content after she was in a period of denial after learning that she died. This book taught me that even when all seems lost there will be a way to find happiness.

Ok, so imagine that you're almost 16... and then you die.

And then you wake up on an ocean liner, and you keep trying to figure out where you are, and how you can get back to your life. And when you realize that you're dead, suddenly the life you've left behind doesn't seem as bad as it did when you were almost 16 and still alive. The ocean liner is moving inevitably towards an unknown shore...

Turns out, you end up in Elsewhere. A perfectly nice place to be, but still, you're dead and separated from the people you love. At least, that's how Lizzie sees it. She never got a chance to go to prom, or get her driver's license, or fall in love, and now she's separated from everything she knows and everyone she loves. She's dead, and she's stuck in Elsewhere.

Slowly, Lizzie starts to let go of the obsessive need to revisit the life and people she left behind. She starts to embrace living, even though she's dead. She makes new friends, she experiences love, and all of it means more than what she experienced in life, because now that she's dead, she knows just how fleeting it all is. She learns to appreciate the life she has and the people (and dogs) she loves in Elsewhere. She does a lot of growing up, even though she's also moving backwards. You'll have to read the book to understand what that means.

No matter what, it is comforting to imagine that we all pass through Elsewhere eventually. And it is also comforting to imagine that none of the love, none of the laughter, none of the happiness is ever wasted just because it eventually comes to an end. In fact, sometimes Elsewhere is even better than Earth, because you know exactly how much time you have left, and you try to never waste a single moment.

As Lizzie learns, it all depends on how you look at it, after all. And after reading this book, I'm taking a second, or even a third look at what it means to be born and to die, and what might be possible in between.

Great premise. Very plainly written, but there was a lot of whimsy, too. (Talking dogs, anyone?) This was young adult fiction, but definitely the best type of young adult fiction that any adult would also enjoy.
