What really happens when we die? One theory put forth in the novel Elsewhere by Garbielle Zevin is that we board a steamship called the SS Nile and travel to Elsewhere: a place very similar to Earth where we take up an avocation (kind of like a job) and age backwards until it is time for us to return to Earth as new babies. For Liz Hall, however, Elsewhere is definitely not any type of heaven. Liz died in a tragic accident at only 15 years old, and is having a really hard time adjusting to her new life in Elsewhere. Check out her "facebook" page to meet some of the characters in Elsewhere and get a preview of Liz's new life.
