Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton

Grace rushes into a burning school to rescue her daughter.  Both are overcome by smoke and fire and end up in the hospital fighting for their life.  The story is narrated by Grace who is able to leave her body and move around and communicate with her daughter, Jenny, who is also having an out of body experience.  Adam, Grace’s son, is accused of starting the fire.  Jenny and Grace know this can’t be true and set out to find the real arsonist.  Lupton does a great job of slowly revealing clues and throwing some twists in that you won’t see coming.  Checkout Afterwards @ the library!
