Evan Tauber believes he’s responsible for the death of his father. Now, after keeping this painful secret to himself for a year, Evan sees a possible path to his redemption: he can join his dad in the afterlife to apologize.
Levin's novel -- in which a young man named Evan believes he caused his father to die and now has to die himself -- will hook readers from the start. Throughout, Evan's voice is strong and convincing, urging the readers to stay with him and the story. And while the plot is somewhat familiar, Levin gives it a new spin, with fully realized characters, crisp dialogue, excellent pacing, and a satisfying conclusion.
