After the accident, something big happened to Will North. Something that he is too scared to tell anyone about in case they think he's mad. For when the truck hit him and his sister Wenny, they found themselves flying through the most beautiful place they'd ever seen in their lives. And the only person he can talk to about it is Wenny. But she isn't here - she didn't come back. The doctor says that Will died for 10 minutes after the accident and that he's lucky to have survived. But Will doesn't think he's lucky. Everything has changed - his parents don't smile any more and he knows they blame him for what happened. He wishes he'd stayed in that happy place with Wenny...Written in a collection of letters to his sister, this is a beautifully crafted, deeply moving and ultimately uplifting novel.
