And while sixteen-year-old Hallie and her sister wait to see who will return from the distant battlefield, they struggle to maintain their family farm. When Hallie hires a veteran to help them, the war comes home in ways no one could have imagined, and soon Hallie is taking dangerous risks—and keeping desperate secrets.

Walker Callaghan, 16, is dead. She doesn’t go to Heaven or Hell. She lands at The Academy, where high school kids are now caught in a strange “in-between” zone where life hasn’t changed very much. Principal King explains the rules — there are none. Why? You can’t die twice. There is no homework. No tests. No SATS.

But falling in love is the most dangerous thing you can do… because no one knows how long you’ll stay in this realm or what’s next.
