Reading Level: Grade 6-8

Riley Bloom resisted for a long time. After she, her parents and her dog were killed in a traffic accident, Riley lingered on the earth plane spying on her sister and her friends as they continued living. When she finally crossed the bridge into Here and was reunited with her parents and dog, she still couldn't resist spying on the living.

On her first day of school (yes, they have school in Here) a nerdy boy brings her to a mysterious door. Inside she meets a group of angels who show her her life...all of it. Riley is horribly embarrassed. So embarrassed that she doesn't ask the right questions when the council of angels announces that Riley will train as a soul catcher. She should have asked.
