Abbey, Christ's Shadowers

The Land of Neverendings

This story is about Emily, who, three months ago, lost her really close sister - Holly. It follows Emily as she goes through common struggles (such as starting a new school, having friends acting weirdly) while having to cope with her grief. She dreams of a land where children (who have passed away) and their toys live on - a child's Heaven - which suddenly becomes accessible to Emily...
It's predominantly looks at grief, but in a way that is accessible and not too painful. It requires you to use your imagination, but if you do it is a truly enjoyable story, despite the mature and often agonizing themes. This book really feels like it has been written from the heart, and can be very relatable, as well as making the reader empathise with Emily and partially understanding the situation of people going through this kind of thing. I would recommend it to readers of all ages - as young readers will enjoy the imaginative side, and more mature readers will enjoy the themes and messages conveyed throughout. I feel like it would do more for girls (as all the main characters are girls) but is good for anyone who has a soft-side. I enjoyed this book tremendously - and it was the in my top 3 books (EVER!)
