High School for the Recently Departed (Ascenders #1)High School for the Recently Departed by C.L. Gaber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed by C.L. Gaber is the start of the Ascenders Saga. This is an interesting paranormal young adult book. The idea is new and interesting and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. The story is about the recently departed Walker Callahan. She is now attending high school in the Realm. This is where teens go when they pass away. Life continues for them and they must keep going to school and learning.
Once at the school Walker meets Daniel Reid, who passed with his siblings in an accident. His mission in life is going back to rescue his baby brother who did not make it to the Realm but is caught as an Earth bound spirit. The Realm is a place of almost no rules. The only rule in the Realm is that you cannot go back to earth. How will Daniel get around the rules? Will Walker take this path with her new love Daniel?
I really enjoyed the new concept and look forward to where this series will go. The addition of deceased celebrities as the faculty was a fun addition. Where else do you have class with Kurt, Heath, Steve, Julia or school counselors George or Miss Elizabeth? Also the concept of teens being able to keep progressing is a nice concept especially when you consider how many have a life cut short by an accident or illness.
