Have you ever wondered where you go when you die?
Meghan is 16 when it happens to her.
She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle.
It is a school everybody has to go to before they are let into Heaven.
On the boat she meets Mick who has been dead for more than a hundred years but still looks like a teenager. He helps her past the difficult beginning at the new school in a new world.
One day some of Meghan's roommates find a mirror in the cellar of the school and they persuade her to go through it with them - well knowing it is strictly against the rules of the school. Meghan ends up back on earth where she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan know something important. Something that is a matter of life and death. Soon she is forced to choose between the two worlds. The one she belongs to now and the one she left.

My Thoughts:

I love the concept of what happens after you die. I wondered it out loud and while I laid in bed several times before and after I read this book. Meghan suddenly dies at 16 and she’s taken to this academy where you learn about what happens after life. She meets great people and a magic Chef who seems to be her age but out ages her by hundreds of years. It isn’t until she meets a live one that she doesn’t know what she’s getting herself into. I loved this book! It was really good and just warm with a touch of darkness to it. There was only one thing that I didn’t like and that had to have been that in some parts of it, it sounded more like it was told like a list of stuff to do. Other than that I abs loved it and I can’t wait to read the next installment! It’s good stuff! I give this one 3.5 out of 5 paws.
