In this delightful novel, death is just the beginning...Liz is killed in a hit-and-run accident and her 'life' takes a very unexpected turn. At nearly 16 she knows she will never get married, never have children, and perhaps never fall in love. But in Elsewhere things carry on almost as they did on Earth except that the inhabitants get younger, dogs and humans can communicate, new relationships are formed and old ones, sadly interrupted on earth, are renewed.
