This book is really good. If you lie Wendy Mass, it'll be even better.

This is a really good book about a 16 year old girl who goes into a coma after being hit in the head by a dodge ball. She finds herself in a dream-like version of the mall and wonders if she is in heaven. It's funny and sad at the same time. I recommend this for readers in Grade 5 to 12.

This book was OK. It was a bit confusing. Also I wish it showed a bit more about what happened afterward.

This book wasnt the greatest, it was actually pretty boring. The verses were kind of annoying. It was ok . . .

I thought this was a great book, loved how it shows how each object was interwoven into her learning something in life.

Pretty good. I like the oxygen trick the nail head guy plays on her. I would've liked to see what happened to her a few months later though.

Tessa Reynolds gets hit by a dodgeball in gym class and she doesn't bother to duck. When she enters in a coma, she finds that heaven looks a lot like the mall she always goes to and knows by hand. She has flashbacks of the humiliating experience from junior prom and her struggle with weight and her perfectionist mother and other painful memories but finally realises she can learn from everything that happened to her.
When given the choice of going back to her life that she though as humiliating, will she embrace her life or decide to let go because she feels miserable?

After a severe head injury in gym class, a teen finds herself floating up to what she thinks is heaven, where she begins to reconcile with her past and gain a better perspective of her life. Grade 7 - 12

I bet if you go through the rest of your life telling yourself, "I'm sparkling," you'll have a whole different energy and experience
