Elsewhere, by Gabrielle Zevin

Book review by Bassaa T., 6th Grade

Elsewhere is about fifteen year old Liz who was hit  by a cab and ended up in in a ship waking up and not realizing she is dead. The ship is called the S.S Nile and it takes you to a place called Elsewhere. Elsewhere is when you die you stay there and you age backward until you’re a baby and you get sent back to Earth. Liz meets new friends and met her grandmother who died before she was born. In Elsewhere you can also see your family through some binoculars costing only one enterium for five minutes. But some people get way too addicted and sometimes want to contact their families. Liz is in that situation she heard of a place called the well. The well is a mile deep in the ocean and you contact anyone you want but you need to try not to get caught or you will get in serious trouble. After Liz succeeds but gets caught she  meets a new friend. Elsewhere looks like earth but is totally different Liz learns that she must accept that she can longer go back to earth as Liz Hall but is it really that different living in Elsewhere as it living on Earth?

I recommend this book to anyone who likes any life after death stories and books.  I also recommend this book to anyone who likes a little romance, humor and sad books.

I liked this book because it wasn’t a spooky book about death and I liked that it was different than any other books I have read when the characters are still alive.
