I was apprehensive at first about this book, as it seemed to be on a slightly morbid topic, but as soon as I started reading I was hooked! It's a brilliant story about Liz who dies aged 15 and moves on to Elsewhere, along with a host of other characters who all have equally interesting stories.
After hearing it called "the new The Lovely Bones, I read that as well, but personally found Elsewhere a much better story, as life (or death!) goes on for Liz, rather than being at a standstill as it was for Susie.
A brilliant read which explores the topic of a possible afterlife in a lighthearted and even believable manner- excellent for anyone. I read it aged 15 then lent it to my mother, and we both really enjoyed it.
