Elsewhere - Gabrielle Zevin This story is a simple one, but I liked it. It seems like it could easily become a classic because the story is one that seems as if it should have always been there.

Elsewhere is the name of the place that 15-year-old Lizzie goes when she dies. It's a place that looks much like earth and even has an observation deck to view scenes from earth in 5-minute increments. In Elsewhere, you age backward and return to earth by floating down the river when you're7 days old again.

It's a story with romance, happiness, forbidden places, talking dogs, lots of emotions, and a little adventure. I think it's universally interesting and a nice, relaxing read.
