A young girl goes in search of her best friend in the afterlife
Fact: Ember and Ness are best friends.
There's nothing more to say about it. It is what it is. It is what will always be. Ember and Ness.
Then Ness dies. It is sudden and unexpected and leaves Ember completely empty. How can this be?
When Ember finds a way into the Afterworld, she determines to bring Ness back. Because that's what friends do isn't it? They rescue each other. They help. They never give up. Ember and Ness. That don't change.
A powerful, poignant, darkly comic and deeply moving story about friendship at its most extraordinary.
NOTE : Early on in the book one of the main characters (a child) dies. Her friend then goes into a kind of afterlife to bring her back but is unable to. In the afterlife she also meets her long dead mother. In addition to this her uncle makes a bargain to sacrifice her life in exchange for the return of his dead dog to life. The deal is voided but it is very unsettling.
