Fact: Ember and Ness are best friends.

There's nothing more to say about it. It is what it is. It is what will always be. Ember and Ness.

Then Ness dies. It is sudden and unexpected and leaves Ember completely empty. How can this be?

When Ember finds a way into the Afterworld, she determines to bring Ness back. Because that's what friends do isn't it? They rescue each other. They help. They never give up. Ember and Ness. That don't change.

A powerful, poignant, darkly comic and deeply moving story about friendship at its most extraordinary.

“A brave, challenging and beautifully written book that unflinchingly confronts death, grief and denial, but which is redeemed by a dark humour and, beneath everything, a beating heart of love” – Daily Mail

“Gripping and poignant, a look at what it means to be brave and alive in the face of loss” – Kirkus, starred review

“Inventively meshes – and blurs – the realistic and the fanciful ... Aided by Gravett's evocative art, Harrold brings this eerie, Briticism-laced tale about accepting change, letting go, and love's indissoluble bonds to an affecting finale that is very much grounded in real life” – Publishers Weekly
