About this Book:

There is no God waiting for you in paradise. No afterlife where friendships severed by death are reformed and families reunited. There is only the Aether, a dimension of insatiable hunger that will possess you no matter the life you led.

Yet there is hope for a lucky few. Archivists, existing between the world of the living and the world of the dead, can offer salvation… for a price. Taking your essence in the final moments before death, they become your afterlife, allowing you to speak with those who remain.

As Diane and Robin learn about their new friend and the problems she faces on her war-torn planet, they vow to help her, even though they understand it means getting deeper into trouble with their father. But they are soon in over their heads, stricken by the virus, and trapped by their father’s mortal enemy. They must use all their instincts and resources to escape before they perish from the virus, along with all hopes of planetary peace.

About this Book:

Via LaVie thinks she’s just an average fifth-grader. She has a mom and dad, an irritating older brother and a cat. She has friends (Molly Appleton is her bestie) and an enemy (bossy mean girl, Tailor Madison). And, she has plenty of worries about going to middle school in the near future.

But Via also has a secret that makes her far from average: she’s an undercover genius who remembers just about everything she sees. Via finds it less than helpful for managing Gran’s mysterious disappearance… or for balancing old friendships with new ones when a special new friend moves onto Via’s street. And then everything in Via’s world gets scrambled when a special opportunity puts Via on a collision course with her family, her friends and her enemy.
