I died. And I came here. To a place they call Two. They say one out of three people who die come here. Berlin is here. She's seven. She forgot to take her insulin. Darrel is here. He drowned. Dr. Raleigh is here. He's the head counselor at the TAF (Two Adjustment Facility) I'm at. He died in an avalanche. Perry Whitcomb is here. I connected with him on Deadbook (Two's version of Facebook). He was on my soccer team in middle school. He collapsed during one of our games. And get this, Heath Ledger is here. (Yeah, the Joker himself.) He just had a new movie come out.

Anyhow, it's been a lot to handle, this new world, this second life, but I think I'm starting to come around. I was about to take the bar exam (for the second time) the week after I died. They say I can take it here. They say I can become a public defender just like I'd planned. We'll see. Sure, I'm starting to adjust, but I still have lots of questions: Why can't women get pregnant here? Who are this group called "Borns" that no one will talk about? Why do They always seem to know exactly where you are every second of every day? I'm not certain of a lot these days, but I do know one thing for sure: there is a lot more to Two than people are telling...

From readers:

"I've already enjoyed the Henry Bins series and the Thomas Prescott series. Maddy Young is another great character. I can't wait to see what happens in the series. Thank you Nick Pirog for another addictive story." -diane coe

"Riveting!" -Lauren

"This book was awesome. It kept my attention from the get go, it was very well written, and the characters were strong. It begins with 'dead' Maddy, a law student who just flunked the bar and wakes up in a world where everyone has 'died'. Through several odd events he finds that everything is not as it seems and begins to question the world he lives in. I don't want to spoil the book, so I will just say that the stuff he discovers, and learns, are life shaking for him." -prea66

"It is [Pirog's] best work yet." -railroader

"Great sci-fi thriller! Started off light but engaging and develops into an page-turning thriller. The characters are super unique and I feel like Berlin is my best friend too. I'm really excited to find out more about the Born's. I can only imagine what they're capable of. Can't wait for the next book!" -Maximus11

Love Nick Pirog, this book has everything - mystery, love and laughter. Nick's books always get to me if you haven't read him you gotta start.

Extremely good! This caught my interest from the very beginning. I really liked Maddy and while I'm usually not a fan of this kind of book I'm into this series for the long haul. Hope to see the next installment Soon!

This book, like all his others, kept me reading late into the night. Just to hard to put down. Very good plot and interesting characters; and the added humor just adds to the enjoyment.

If you are on the fence about reading sci-fi give this story a try. You will be surprised at how much you will enjoy this book. From the title I assumed Maddy Young was a women, but was pleasantly surprised that Maddy is a young adult male. His character is fun and endearing. The story is full of questions and surprises. I highly recommend this book. I am already anticipating book Two!

Like other Nick Pirog stories, this grabs your attention from the start. It’s different from his other plots but I enjoyed it very much and look forward to the rest of the series.

I have read all his books, and always chevk what new addition he has to add to my own collection. This book is good and has the right amount of everything! Major cliffhanger in the end. As someone else urged -- do write faster! I am checking my bookstore everyday, anxiously awaiting the next Maddy story.
