Patrick Ness

Haven't you ever felt like there has to be more?

Like there's more out there somewhere, just beyond your grasp, if you could only get to it?

From double Carnegie Medal-winning author Patrick Ness comes one of the most powerful and provocative Young Adult novels of our time.

A boy drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments. He dies.

Then he wakes, naked, bruised and thirsty, but alive.

How can this be? And what is this strange, deserted place?

As he struggles to understand what is happening, the boy dares to hope. Might this not be the end? Might there be more to this life, or perhaps this afterlife?
