From the acclaimed author of Sunday Times no. 1 bestseller Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, a YA novel of hope, love and redemption about Liz's life after life. ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE'S 100 BEST YA BOOKS OF ALL TIME 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 very like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backwards 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 driving licence. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. She doesn't want to get to know a grandmother she's never met before and have to make all-new friends. How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Or is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward? 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 New York Times Book Review

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. Zevins 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 * So convincing you find yourself wanting to read the book backwards when you've finished * Sunday Telegraph * Pose[s] intriguing questions about identity and connection -- Imogen Russell Williams * Guardian *
