The Young Book of the Dead

A Gothic Allegorical Fantasy for Young Adults.

Robert Young is 13, short, and unexpectedly dead. But a little thing like death won’t stop Robert. He has his whole life ahead of him.

So with a couple of new friends he sets out to defy the laws of nature, escape the afterlife, and return home. Even if it does raise hell…

Join Robert on his epic journey through the afterlife and beyond, modelled on the emotional journey of grief itself.
