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 Review

I was sent this book through Basically Books in return for a review. I rate this book 4 stars. The story line is an easy 4.5, but there were many grammar and punctuation mistakes. The basis of this book is that a teen girl dies and is sent to an Academy in the after life. There, she learns how to live as a spirit and what is expected of her. Against Academy rules, she ventures into the human world and, in my opinion, sets herself up for disappointment with what she finds there and how it transforms her. She must make important choices for herself and for the life of others. It was a very easy read; an intriguing page turner it was. The ending was abrupt, but it is easy to get over after you remind yourself that there are sequels. I can't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series. :)


  1. I think I've never heard of this book before, it sounds interesting. I think I'll add it to my TR list. Thanks for the review.

    1. You should definitely read it! Honestly, it made me cry a little bit. It's a great read. :)
