What a tremendous debut teen novel for Mr. Myers! His characters are realistic, and Myers’ is able to weave a story which does not disappoint. Sawyer is a child who is in a situation of life after death, a drowning that occurred some years passed during World War II. A haunting tale with a supernatural twist that starts out innocently enough, and is able to chronicle the friendship that develops between Tyler and Sawyer with events that turn back the hands of time to World War II. Tyler wants to help Sawyer understand his unusual situation because it appears to be more than just afterlife, it’s a reincarnation. Throughout the novel the two boys piece together snippets of information and together discover what truly happened so many years ago. Tyler must help Sawyer stay alive as they discover the disturbing truth about his past life. Thus unfolds this teen tale of heroism, darkness, light, and hope. This novel is geared towards children ages 11-14 and I purchased the novel for my classroom library collection. I’ve had a couple of students in my classroom who have enjoyed this new edition and we are all looking forward to Myers’ next novel. (review by Dawn O'leary)

A good book by a new author. Probably best for middle schoolers I think. I like books that show inter-generational relationships in a positive light and this one did that in addition to the stuff about reincarntation. an interesting mystery all around.

A pretty good book with some interesting stuff about past lives in it. It was very easy to read though the plot requires some leaps of faith which I guess is to be expected in a book on this subject. I was probably too old for this book too as the cover says for ages 11- 14 I think teens that age would probably like it more. Still worth a read IMHO

This is a very good ya book with a great main character who's both troublesome and very endearing. Tyler doesn't make friends easily, but this adventure into the paranormal kinda proves you only need a few good ones to get by. This is a book that will appeal to older kids interested in paranormal themes and world war 2. The author's website has some really interesting background info too on this title.

A fun book for younger young adults with some spooky themes about reincarnation and an unsolved murder going back to a Prisoner of war camp in World War 2. The main character is a fun but troubled kid and there are some positive thems here about redemption and friendship.

Clever, well written and engaging. This is probably a good title for middle school boys who are interested in creepy things and world war 2.
