here is the "Elsewhere" summary from a website;
Liz had an okay life. She was going to get her learner's permit in about a year, she
had a prom coming up, and she had a pretty nice family. Then, one morning she wakes
up to find herself on a boat! She meets all sorts of strange characters on the boat.
Such as Curtis Jest, a member of her favorite band, Machine, and Thandi, a girl who
claims to have been shot in the head. Liz is positive she's dreaming. Liz gets a
letter, telling her to visit the Observation Deck. When she gets there, she gazes
upon her own funeral. Then she gets it. This isn't a dream. She's dead. Liz struggles
in her first year in Elswhere. But, she makes friends, gets a job, and makes peace
with her death.
