Liz is dead. She died from a taxi collision and wakes up on a boat. Her family is not with her. She learns that when she died she got transferred to the world of the dead, aka Elsewhere. She has to live her life in death as she gets over her grief of leaving her family. I wouldn't give away much about this book because this book will keep your hands and eyes stuck to it.
This book has an interesting plot dealing with her life in Elsewhere. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes exotic books about death.
