“Everwild” by Neal Shusterman

Back of the Book:

Everlost, the limbo land of dead children, is at war. Nick the “Chocolate Ogre” wants to help the children of Everlost reach the light at the end of the tunnel. Mary Hightower, self-proclaimed queen of lost children and dangerous fanatic, is determined to keep Everlost’s children trapped within its limbo for all eternity. Traveling in the memory of the Hindenburg, Mary is spreading her propaganda and attracting Afterlights to her cause at a frightening speed.

Meanwhile, Allie the Outcast travels home to seek out her parents, along with Mikey, who was once the terrifying monster the McGill. Allie is tempted by the seductive thrill of skinjacking the living, until she discovers the shocking truth about skinjackers.

Kayla’s Review on

Although it pales when compared to its prequel, “Everwild” is still a damn good book. Even more so if you don’t so adversely despise some of the characters. In fact, I am now firmly rooted in the belief that if I suddenly forget what I was about to say, a skinjacker briefly body-surfed through me. (read the entire review here)

The very worst thing about this book is why Allie can skinjack. It’s not that it’s a bad plot point, or anything, it’s just really sad. :-(

The very best thing about this book is the reason skinjackers can skinjack. It’s genius! I won’t give it away, but it takes a sincerely twisted mind to come up with such an amazing detail. ^_^
