Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zavin
Imagine you wake up one morning to find yourself dead. On a boat on an ocean. And you don't know where you are.
This is what happens to Liz Hall, when she's 15 years old, and killed by a hit-and-run. She awakes and finds herself on the ship to Elsewhere. She has no family with her, no friends, and most of the other people on the ship are ... old. Soon she finds herself living with a grandmother she has never met in a place resembling Earth, but it's not, and she's homesick and angry and only wants to go home. But home is not an option.
I finally got around to listening to an audiobook, and despite previous attempts and failures, I actually enjoyed this one. The book itself is a good story of life, death, learning to accept the blows of life and live with them, and adjusting to change.
The audio is done by Cassandra Morris, who does a great job.
