Everfound, by Neal Shusterman, is the 27th book I’ve finished this year. It is the third and final installment in the Skinjacker series.
If you have never read any of Shusterman’s books, I strongly encourage you to run to your nearest bookstore or open up your browser to your favorite online book retailer and GET ONE OF HIS BOOKS!!!
Everfound is the fifth Shusterman book that I’ve read.
Every time I order one of his books, I sit with baited breath awaiting its arrival.
Such was the case with Everfound.
This series deals with children who are stuck between life and death. For whatever reason, they don’t make it to the light.
The main characters – Allie, Mikey, Nick (The Chocolate Ogre), and Mary – are in a battle. Allie, Mikey, and Nick want to help the children find their way to the light, and Mary thinks it is her purpose to keep them away from it, safe in Everlost.
The final book touched me very deeply. At one point, I actually cried.
The climax of the story will leave you both stunned and amazed at Shusterman’s creativity. He cleverly utilizes historic places, weaving his tale to an emotional end.
This is a must-read…for ALL ages.
