Title: The First Phone Call From Heaven
Author: Mitch Albom
This is about people in a small town who start to receive brief phone calls from one of there deceased family members. When the public gets hold of it, it splits the town into believers & people who want to debunk it. I have mixed feelings about this story. I liked the premise, but w/o giving to much away, I wish it would have stayed the course.

Hello from Heaven
This book presents different types of after-death communications, as evidence of eternal life and eternal love. Raymond Moody, who reported his seminal research on near-death experiences in his book, Life after Life, has high praise for this work. It certainly provokes thought about life, love, and the transcendence of our spirits. It’s both a fast and interesting read and chapters can be read out of sequence. This book has made me stop, think, and question some of my own experiences.
From Teen Book Reviewer
author: Huntley, Amy
I recently finished reading the book The Everafter by Amy Huntley. This book is about a girl named Maddie who discovers she’s dead as she recovers moments and objects from her past. As she re-visits these moments she is able to change them and as she does, she notices the importance of life and how special and precious it is.
I think that this book was really exciting and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I personally picked this book up because of the cover. It was an attractive cover and it really caught my eye and the picture was really cool and spooky at the same time. I thought that this was a great read and it is a perfect book for any teen who likes a little bit of a spooky tale, and also enjoys and appreciates a universal message about live.
I think that Amy Huntley took a different perspective on life as she wrote this book. She really expressed her perspective through her character Maddie and she showed the meaning and the true importance of life. She used a vivid description in her writing.
In total this book was a great read as it suited me perfectly. Overall,this is a great book for all teenagers.
