The Everafter by Amy Huntley This would be a good read alike for people that enjoyed Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin. Like that book, the subject explored is what happens to a person after they are dead. As the book begins the only thing that Madison Stanton knows for sure is that she is dead. She doesn't remember dying and she doesn't really remember her life. Gradually she realizes that the space is currently occupies is not a void, there are bright "x-ray" versions of objects from her life scattered and that with concentration she can navigate to them and then relive the moments of her life where she lost that particular object. As she moves from object to object she uncovers more memories and feels herself coming closer to the answer of how she died and what she is meant to do now. I enjoyed the weaving of physics and Emily Dickinson poetry through out Madison's exploration and dawning understanding of her new reality. This book is also available as a CD audio book.
