Me on Waiting on Wednesday (97)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Level 2
Author: Lenore Appelhans
Release Date: January 15, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

From Goodreads:

In this gripping exploration of a futuristic afterlife, a teen discovers that death is just the beginning. Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow drones, Felicia passes the endless hours reliving memories of her time on Earth and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and Neil, the boy she loved.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber is found dead, and nobody but Felicia recalls that she existed in the first place. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, Felicia learns the truth: If she joins the rebellion to overthrow the Morati, the angel guardians of Level 2, she can be with Neil again.

Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself at the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.

So, it sounds kind of interesting. Another exploration of the weird limbo-type space between life and death. I hope the mix of the futuristic setting will work with the Heaven and Earth/good vs evil battle. :) And the cover is rather eye-catching, with all the white and the splash of orange for the title. Not sure about the slash through the girl's eye, though.


  1. Hey Lindsay! Thanks for featuring LEVEL 2! The "slash" through the girl's eye is actually the shine from the plastic bubble that the model is inside of - freaky right?

  2. It sounds so good! I can't wait to read this. I also agree that the cover is eye catching. Great choice.

  3. I'm waiting for this, because I've been a follower of Lenore's blog for some time.
