Genre: Young Adult
Literary Merit: Excellent
Characterization: Excellent

Layoverland by Gabby Noone is about a 17-year-old girl named Beatrice, who goes by Bea. She is not a typical high school girl and does not get excited by things like school dances and looking super cute. She shows anger towards everyone and is never afraid to speak her mind. She only cares about her sister Emmy out of everyone in the world, but when they get in a fight and Bea is driving around all sad about it, she gets in a car accident and dies. In this novel, good people go to heaven, bad people go to hell, and the people in the middle go to the “airport” until they figure out what they did on Earth that is holding them back. Bea was almost sent to hell, but instead, she is put in a special group at the airport to help 5,000 souls reach heaven as her punishment for rude behavior on Earth before she can make it to heaven. Also waylaid at the airport is Caleb, the person who caused the car accident that killed her, and Bea begins plotting revenge on the boy who stole her life.

This book was an easy read that was very intriguing. I enjoyed it because it was not on earth, yet it was not the afterlife either. It was something different from what I have ever read before and I couldn’t put it down. The author shows the importance of love between family members and living every day as if it were your last, because it may very well be. She also shows that sometimes there are things more important in “life” than revenge and getting back at people.

Recommendation: I would recommend this book to those who enjoy drama in a strange environment not typical in YA novels. ( )
