Waterstones Says

This intimate and intricate tale with an ingenious premise from the bestselling author of Tomorrow and Tomorow and Tomorrow takes the reader into the world as seen through the eyes of a teenager killed in a hit-and-run who instead of ageing starts getting younger.

Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are beautiful. It's quiet and peaceful. You can't get sick and you can't get older. In Elsewhere, death is only the beginning …

Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she is killed in a hit-and-run accident. It is a place very like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backwards from the day of her death until she becomes a baby again and returns to Earth. But Liz wants to turn sixteen, not fourteen again. She wants to get her driving licence. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. She doesn't want to get to know a grandmother she's never met before and have to make all-new friends.

How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Or is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Every so often a book comes along with a premise so fresh and arresting it seems to exist in a category all its own. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin, is such a book. 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

Fascinating. Zevin, in her first novel for young people, bends the laws of physics and biology to create an intricately imagined world - Publishers Weekly

So convincing you find yourself wanting to read the book backwards when you've finished - Sunday Telegraph

Pose[s] intriguing questions about identity and connection - Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian

“Absorbing”

A beautifully written book that gives an alternative view on what could happen when we die. It's very spiritual without religion creeping in, and really made me think.

“a pretty little story”

This was a nice book to read, light and fresh. I was however dissapointed as was expecting a deep, touching and thought provoking read which it is not. With such a storyline there could have been so much more emotion... More
