Welsh Week: Afterlife Academy by Jaimie Admans! + Giveaway

Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.

Dying wasn't on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson's to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she's stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she's stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.

In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all...

Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.

Review by Anniek

Riley thinks that she has a perfect life. She is popular, dates the most gorgeous guy in school and has a big group of people surrounding her...wishing they would be her. When she decides to skip school with her boyfriend her afternoon does not go as planned. When Riley finds herself at the gates of her school together with Anthony, the geek from school, she doesn't understand what happened.

It looks like her old school, but is now without color. They are welcomed and taken into the school. It turns out they are now new students at Afterlife Academy. The school where you only go to after you have died!

Riley has a hard time adjusting even though Anthony is helping her a lot. The only thing she can think about is finding her way back home. During her lessons she finds out that her former life wasn't all that perfect after all. What will she do...will she stay or will she keep looking for the way out?

Jaimie Admans did a fantastic job in creating this story. She presents an alternative about what happens when you die. She also gives a powerful message against bullying. The story was greatly written and I wanted to keep on reading to find out what happens next.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to read this book, I absolutely loved it!

Jaimie is a 29-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, drinking tea and watching horror movies. She hates spiders and cheese & onion crisps.

She has been writing for years, but has never before plucked up the courage to tell people. Kismetology is her first novel and there are plenty more on the way! She wants you to know that the mum in this book is nothing like her own mum!

  1. I don't think anything happens. Hopefully I'm still a long way off from finding out ;)

  2. After death, a person resides in a “temporary” heaven or hell. After this temporary realm, at the final resurrection, a person’s eternal destiny will not change.

  3. Not really sure, I just hope it's something peaceful where I can be with my loved ones

  4. Due to my religion, I believe a person's soul either goes to heaven or hell, but truthfully nobody who is alive actually knows ;) I kind of hope we just cease to exist though, at least whatever pain we go through at least.

  7. I don't think anything happens, we just die & that's it. That's why it's important to live our lives to the fullest

  8. I don't have any strong beliefs about that, but sometimes I think that there's something to do with reincarnation.

  9. I think we continue existing in some way.

  11. I always thought we went to another place, based on how we had acted in life, and what we saw as our own individual heaven. However, since people in my family have died and I have had no interaction from them at all, I now wonder whether anything happens to us at all after death.

  12. Never made anything crazy.

    I do not know if there is something in a similar way to what we have now, or portraying the books (though love reading ... hihihi).
    However I can not imagine that there is nothing.

    I too "cruel" to live and we try so hard, that we love so much, and then it all ends.
    The avoidance something from us in another form of life!

    So I want to believe that all who live lost somehow somewhere, and that one day I can see everyone again.

  13. I like to imagine myself sitting on a cloud, looking down on everyone, sending them love and good luck, but somehow I don't think that's what really happens!

  14. I think your soul is taken, but your body just stays. & no I don't think I have done anything foolish, 'said' something foolish, oh yes! frequently.

  15. After dead, I only hope I can see the people that died :(

  16. after death i believe that we are either reincarnated or maybe we meet the people from this life or repeat this life again like a endless cycle. but their has to be something otherwise what the point in being born once to then die?
    i once repeatedly asked my crush to date me about twice a day for a whole week until they eventually broke down and said yes and then i realised i didnt like them and dumped them 5 seconds later. i was 13 :s

  17. After death there is nothing unless you have unfinished business, then you come back and stand at the end of little girl's beds holding conversations with them in the night x

  18. You die and go back to being part of the universe, and repeat!

  19. After death.... I hope I remain ignorant about that a little longer!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I believe our souls are energy and as such they move somewhere out of our body....

    ReplyDelete
  21. I believe our souls are reborn into a new body, well that's what I hope for anyways :)

  22. I would like to think that there is something after death. I'm reminded of an incident when I was a child, shortly after my grandfather died...I was walking along a path going from my home to my grandmothers and I was looking up into the sky...even to this day I vividly remember seeing him, along with a host of angels going along singing and looking down at me smiling. I watched for what seemed like a very long time to me. Probably only a couple of minutes though. After that, I ran as fast as my legs would carry me to go tell my grandmother. Perhaps he'd finished his multiple reincarnations and it was his time to ascend or perhaps there is a God. I just don't know. All I do know is what I saw. What I saw was very real. I've always heard children see things that adults aren't always willing to see. Who knows.
