Three levels. Two loves. One choice. Debut novelist, Lenore Appelhans has written a thrilling otherworldly young adult novel about a place that exists between our world (Level 1) and what comes after life (Level 2).
'I pause to look around the hive - all the podlike chambers are lit up as the drones shoot up on memories ... I've wanted to get out of here before, but now the tight quarters start to choke me. There has to be more to death than this.'
Felicia Ward is dead. Trapped in a stark white afterlife limbo, she spends endless days replaying memories, of her family, friends, boyfriend ... and of the guy who broke her heart. The guy who has just broken into Level 2 to find her.
Felicia learns that a rebellion is brewing, and it seems she is the key. Suspended between heaven and earth, she must make a choice. Between two worlds, two lives and two loves.
'A gripping debut! This utterly unique take on the afterlife poses fascinating questions about how our memories shape who we are - and who we love. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!' - Megan McCafferty, NY Times Bestselling author of Bumped
'Absolutely gripping. My heart pounded on nearly every page. You won't be able to put it down.' - Mary E. Pearson, author of The Jenna Fox Chronicles
'Appelhans brings the afterlife to a whole new level ... a high-voltage thrill ride through love, death, and memory that will leave you breathless.' - Jess Rothenberg, author of The Catastrophic History of You and Me
