A celestial delivery girl gets caught up in a war that threatens to destroy everything while trying to find her best friend.
Sixteen-year-old Angie has been run over, knifed, and even accidentally impaled with a “FOR LET” sign. But as a messenger – ferrying notes from the dead to the living – she has been bounced back from the celestial cities every time she’s died for the past two hundred years. Now, with a week left in her contract, Angie’s ready to pop her clogs for real.
Until her best friend, Scott, vanishes. To top it all off, the celestial cities are gearing up for war, which might put a dent in her plan for a peaceful afterlife.
As time runs short, it’s clear that someone doesn’t want Angie to find Scott. Dragged deeper into the underworld of the messengers, she is forced to make a deal with the warring factions in order to reach increasingly cryptic clues on Scott’s whereabouts – which would be fine if she didn’t have to swear eternal fealty to both factions. When her last message finally comes through, it’s to her: give up the search, or lose her freedom. While the celestial world falls into chaos, Angie will have to make a terrible choice.
Unless she can find her tormentor first.
