Beyond (March 17, 2012)

Beyond by: T. P. Boje
Stars: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

Summary: Have you ever wondered where you go when you die? Meghan is 16 when it happens to her. She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle. It is a school everybody has to go to before they are let into Heaven. On the boat she meets Mick who has been dead for more than a hundred years but still looks like a teenager. He helps her past the difficult beginning at the new school in a new world filled with heavenly magic. One day some of Meghan's roommates find a mirror in the cellar of the school and they persuade her to go through it with them - well knowing it is strictly against the rules of the school. Meghan ends up back on earth where she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan knows something important. Something that is a matter of life and death. Soon she is forced to choose between the two worlds. The one she belongs to now and the one she left.

Thoughts: At first I thought if was alot like Harry Potter... The school for spirits, the headmaster is a old man with a white beard. I was like Dumbledore is this where you went too...


Also the ladders changing their locations were alot like those at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But thats pretty much where it leaves the whole HP world. This book talks about the battle between the good and evil (fallen angels).

I'm glad the book moved a bit faster than I thought it would- for I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. I wish there was more things answered in it tho... Like how did she die and was her family really looking for her and was she different then the others somehow. Well I'll just have to wait won't I to get the rest of this story and hopefully answered.
