Heaven is being at the mall


Heaven Looks A Lot Like the Mall

by Wendy Mass

When you think of ways you could die, you never think gym class. You put yourself in some heroic situation.  When sixteen-year-old Tessa experiences death by gym class, it wasn’t what she expected, but then neither is heaven which seems like her local mall.

Tessa begins to relive some incidents in her past.  Some good, but most not.  By looking at them from a distance, Tessa begins to understand the what and the why. Things that will help her answer the question on her college essay, “Who Are You?”

Here is a realistic teen.  One who hasn’t always chosen well, but is resilient, if she could only recognize it in herself. 

Story is told in verse. For middle school and older. Will appeal to girls.
