eBook Review: The Next Thing I Knew by John Corwin
The Next Thing I Knew is a young adult book by John Corwin. It tells the story of a young girl called Lucy Morgan, and what happens when suddenly the entire human race drops dead. Lucy and her friends quickly realise they’re living some kind of ‘between’ life – they’re dead, but their spirits, or souls, have not yet passed on. They decide to use this fact to their advantage, and try to find out what happened, and see if they can fix it.
What follows is a pretty crazy adventure. It includes ghosts, corpses, love, loss, mystery, outer space and much more. It’s a well-written story, with lots of humour and entertainment value. It’s not the usual sort of book I’d choose to read, but nevertheless I found it engaging and certainly different from anything else I’ve read. So if you enjoy fantastical YA novels, then you should give The Next Thing I Knew a try.
