Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin.
Farrar, Straus and Giroux: NY, 2005.

Fifteen-year-old Liza Hall dies when she is hit by a car and finds there is life after death in a place called Elsewhere. Once she accepts her situation she has a life much like on Earth. Many things that people speculate about are tied into the story. It is creative and well-developed. It builds on the ideas of life being a circle and people living many lives instead of one. The book may offend some people because there is no mention of God or heaven, but I found it to be a fresh and insightful story regarding life.
