Brilliantly written, each of the stories in this thought-provoking and surprisingly entertaining collection asks what happens next? Award winning authors including Malorie Blackman, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Philip Ardagh and Keith Gray explore, what is death? How does it make us feel? And speculates on what do those who have died feel? Never mawkish although at times sad, this collection will set your mind into overdrive as you consider life after death.
Some of today's leading writers for teens have come together to ask what happens after you die? Heaven? Hell? Purgatory? Reincarnation? Ghosts? Buried? Nothing...? Will you go out with a bang? Or find a peace that only you can see? Is heaven spending eternity reliving your happiest memories? Or is your future in someone else's thoughts? Could it even be that you leave a part of yourself behind?
