Review

Following on from the success of Losing It, Keith Gray has edited a new collection of eight short stories for young people exploring the complex question of what happens when we die.

An impressive line-up of authors, including Julie Bertagna, Jonathan Stroud, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Malorie Blackman and Philip Ardagh, as well as Gray himself, offer a variety of interesting responses to this universal question. Touching on everything from what the afterlife might be like, whether there are really ghosts, and how we deal with bereavement and grief, these stories are often moving, sometimes darkly funny, sometimes shocking, but always profoundly thought-provoking.
