FC: Elsewhere | By: Gabrielle Zevin
1: Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she has died. 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. | SUMMARY:
2: 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.
3: 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?
4: "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 "Gabrielle Zevin has constructed a fascinating 'what if?' Great humor and speculation, on pets as well as people." - Chicago Tribune “this is a book about the fleeting beauty of life, the necessity of love, and the bittersweetness of it all.” - Philadelphia Inquirer “Powerful and thought provoking in the way that recalls Lois Lowry's The Giver, this bittersweet tale will move some readers to tears with its devastating beauty and loss.” - Seattle Post-Intelligencer | REVIEWS:
5: "On, there are so many lives. How we wish we could live them concurrently instead of one by one by one. We could select the best pieces of each, stringing them together like a strand of pearls. But that's not how it works. A human life is a beautiful mess." — Gabrielle Zevin (Elsewhere) | AUTHOR:
