Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

"Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… 

Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most."

The only thing better than one great book is one great book inside a fantastic book!!!This was so original and exciting. The book never really slowed down as when Darcy's story line was not very exciting Lizzie's story was enticing and vice-versa.
   I thought Darcy was such a refreshing protagonist I loved how she noticeably matured throughout the book however I still think she has more growing up to do-Seriously Darcy, be more careful with money! 
   It is incredibly difficult for me to pick a favourite story line within the book but if I absolutely had to choose it would be Darcy's as it was her point of view that help me become invested in Lizzie's story. Also as someone who wants to get into the publishing world I found Darcy's story so interesting if not a little frightening

I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!!!
