A collection of short stories about the afterlife by some of today's leading writers for teens: Keith Gray, Jonathan Stroud, Philip Ardagh, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Malorie Blackman, Sally Nicholls, Julie Bertagna and Gillian Philip

Heaven? Hell? Purgatory? Reincarnation? Ghosts? Buried? Nothing . . .?

Some of today's leading writers for teens have come together to ask, what happens after you die?
Will you go out with a bang? Or find a peace that only you can see?
Is heaven spending eternity reliving your happiest memories? Or is your future in someone else's thoughts?
Could it even be that you leave a part of yourself behind?
