Afterlife Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Afterlife

Chuy is only seventeen when he dies, stabbed to death in the bathroom of a nightclub after telling a man he liked his shoes. He drifts up from his body and wanders around Fresno and watches as his mother tries to get his uncle, only a few years older than Chuy himself, to take revenge on his unknown murderer. As his would-be girlfriend, Rachel, and his best friend, Angel, mourn his passing, Chuy's murderer, who he calls Yellow Shoes, shows no remorse at all as he tosses his knife into a dumpster. Then Chuy meets Crystal, another ghost, and teaches her the ropes of getting around in her non-body, falling in love in the process. He saves the life of a homeless man, only to befriend him when he dies later anyway.
