From the acclaimed author of the Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls comes one of the most provocative teen novels of our time.

A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is this possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? The street seems familiar, but everything is abandoned, overgrown, covered in dust.

What's going on? Is it real? Or has he woken up in his own personal hell? Seth begins to search for answers, hoping desperately that there must be more to this life, or perhaps this afterlife....

intriguing story, disappointing ending, well worth listening to because of the excellent reader

Seth's story starts with his suicide, after he's given up hope that life holds anything more for him. Except death isn't all there is, because he wakes in a strange, empty, strangely familiar world. He's lost, weak, and hungry and faced with a new set of questions: What is this place and does he care enough to struggle to survive while he figures it all out?
-----
I didn't find all of the answers as fascinating and satisfying as they might have been (four stars, not five), but I did enough of them to make the book engagingly meaningful, and the journey to them was characterized by captivating plotting, pacing, characters, and world-building. As information emerges, Seth--and readers--are kept just off-balance enough to maintain momentum and build tension without ever feeling frustratingly adrift. A journey well worth taking.
