Going against Mary Hightower's wishes, Nick, "the chocolate ogre," is slowly trying to reach every kid in Everlost to hand each and every one a coin, which will release them from Everlost. Mikey McGill and Allie have joined a band of skinjackers who have more of an impact on the living world then any other inhabitant of Everlost. Except Mikey can't skinjack and Allie can - and there is a very good reason: Allie is not actually dead.

Star rating of 4.5 - You can tell that Neal Shusterman studied psychology in college. He does such a good job with his characters, diving into ethics and the morality of kids at different ages/stages. He doesn't write stereotypical, cliched or 2-D "bad" guys. He makes them human and often shows you how they went down the roads they do. He also dives into the "good" guys and shows us their mistakes too, making sure things are never black and white. He can turn a situation on a dime, surprising both his readers and I think his characters too.

In this book he tackles, amongst other things, zealotry and some of the ways a person who used to be "good" might go down that road. The stakes are higher in this book and the tension is cranked. There are just as many surprises as in the first book. I was tense reading it, dreading where it was going but knowing it would be an interesting ride. I know that this will probably be my experience with the next book because of the way this one leaves off.

I keep putting quotes around the terms good and bad because Neal Shusterman is really good at making these kinds of things grey or not so perfectly clear. While we root for and against certain characters and situations no one tends to be very static with only making good or bad choices.

This is a book I definitely hope my kids will read as there is so much to discuss. Neal Shusterman is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors!

It's hard being a sequel, especially the middle book in a trilogy. Too often, these are the ones that consist mostly of filler, and get bogged down in the author's attempts to set up an exciting conclusion. Not so in this instance. Everwild takes the story ably begun in Everworld, and expands it so thoroughly and with such unrestrained imagination that I was amazed. We once again get to follow Allie the Outcast, Nick the Chocolate Ogre, Mikey McGill, and Mary Hightower as they each pursue their own missions and learn more about their talents and their character. Does Allie find her home? Can Mikey turn his back on his monster side? Can Nick convince the Afterlighters that he holds the key to true peace? And Mary, well Mary is still trying to take over the world.

This is an exciting story that will keep readers glued to the page from the very beginning. The author handles issues of ethics and integrity very well as each of our characters struggles with the consequences of their actions and their desire to do what is right for the living world and Everlost. Sometimes the decisions they make are horrific in their callous disregard for life, and yet there are other moments that are extremely poignant and create beautiful images that I am sure will stay with me for quite a while. The author excels in painting such good portraits of these characters, that even when we despise what they are doing, we are able to understand it.

This is a great series for students in grade 7, all the way up to adults. Parents, buy this one for your kids and then read it first so you can talk about it. Believe me, there will be plenty to talk about. I had no idea where this story was going when I started it, and it thoroughly surprised me all the way up to the ending that left me holding my breath at the suspense. It's well written, witty, dialogue and ever-expanding Everlost mythology will leave you clamoring for more. I'm off to read the third book. Heaven only knows what's going to happen next.

I loved this sequel! However, while Everlost pulled you along with a quick plot and lots of new story elements, this book was very much a bridge book. I've found this is not uncommon with the second book in a trilogy. Rather than going from a beginning to an end, this book went from a beginning, and built up to a not-so-satisfying ending for the book itself, not didn't wrap anything up. It has a cliffhanger ending that definitely requires reading the next book.

So, while I definitely reccomend getting this book, know that you can't stop after this one. You must read the final book in the series(duh).

I read Everlost, and liked it, but mid-way through this book, I was kind of getting tired of it. Yes, they're stuck in a world between mortal world and the after-life. Yes, they're all kids. Yes, they could sink to the core of the earth if they stay in one place to long... I get it. Basically, the development of the plot was rather slow. I ended up stopping about 3/4 of the way through, and just went to Wikipedia and read what the ending was like. It's a good book if you're patient, but I'm not. I need my books beg me to turn the page to find out what happens. This, sadly, doesn't.

But Neal Shusterman has managed to make the "bridge" between the first and last books wonderful. Normally the second part of a trilogy lacks much excitement, it's more of a means to an end. But he shows the characters we met in the Everlost come into their own. We see Mary Hightower, not just as the prim and proper mother figure, but as a cunning and slightly deranged young woman. Nick is starting to forget most of himself, leaving just chocolate and the need to carry on his mission to get Afterlights where they were always meant to go. Allie, with Mikey McGill in tow, is making her way towards her old home and trying to resist the growing urge to skinjack. This is made harder when she meets others like her who tell her about a secret all skinjackers learn upon arriving home. Mikey in the meantime is forced to watch her jump back and forth from the living world. He's trying to cope with having new human feelings and being tempted to change himself again at the same time.
Everwild is a fantastic second book. Shusterman introduces new characters that will endear and appall you. This book deals with so much without overwhelming. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down. It was truly an awesome read and I cannot wait for the final installment, Everfound.
