_______________ ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE'S 100 BEST YA BOOKS OF ALL TIME _______________ "Every so often a book comes along with a premise so fresh and arresting it seems to exist in a category all its own. Elsewhere is such a book" - The New York Times Book Review _______________ Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are beautiful. It's quiet and peaceful. You can't get sick, and you can't get older. In Elsewhere, death is only the beginning... Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she is killed in a hit-and-run accident. 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. She wants to get her driver's license. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. And now that she's dead, Liz is being forced to live a life she doesn't want with a grandmother she has only just met. And it is not going well. 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? Full of the most ingenious detail and woven around the most touching and charming relationships, this is a novel of hope, of redemption and rebirth. It is a novel that tells of sadness with heartbreaking honesty, and of love and happiness with uplifting brilliance.

"Every so often a book comes along with a premise so fresh and arresting it seems to exist in a category all its own. "Elsewhere," by Gabrielle Zevin, is such a book. Zevin's touch is marvelously light even as she considers profundities, easily moving among humor, wisdom and lyricism... No plot synopsis can convey what a rich, wise spell this book casts." * The New York Times Book Review * "Fascinating. Zevin, in her first novel for young people, bends the laws of physics and biology to create an intricately imagined world." * Publishers Weekly *
