Afterlife by Willem Bosch


In the afterlife Sam encounters her dead mother and tries to find a way to bring them both back to the real world.

Sam is a hyper-intelligent and hardworking 14-year-old girl who leads a happy life with her father and her two brothers. She's a good student, very disciplined and always on time. Ever since her mother Vera died, she has felt responsible for the family. But one morning she is struck by a large truck and she dies. In the afterlife she finds her mother waiting for her. She discovers that there is a way back to the world of the living, but can she succeed in taking her mother back with her?
