About the book:

Is it possible to grow up while getting younger?

Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are marvelous. Its quiet and peaceful. You cant get sick or any older. Curious to see new paintings by Picasso? Swing by one of Elsewheres museums. Need to talk to someone about your problems? Stop by Marilyn Monroes psychiatric practice.  Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she has died. It is a place so like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backward from the day of her death until she becomes a baby again and returns to Earth. But Liz wants to turn sixteen, not fourteen again. She wants to get her drivers license. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. And now that shes dead, Liz is being forced to live a life she doesnt want with a grandmother she has only just met. And it is not going well. How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward? This moving, often funny book about grief, death, and loss will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. Elsewhere is a 2006 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
