(The first book in the Maddy Young series)
A novel by

The only thing Maddy knows for that he died.

I died. And I came here. To a place they call Two. They say one out of three people who die come here. Berlin is here. She's seven. She forgot to take her insulin. Darrel is here. He drowned. Dr. Raleigh is here. He's the head counselor at the TAF (Two Adjustment Facility) I'm at. He died in an avalanche. Perry Whitcomb is here. I connected with him on Deadbook (Two's version of Facebook). He was on my soccer team in middle school. He collapsed during one of our games. And get this, Heath Ledger is here. (Yeah, the Joker, himself.) He just had a new movie come out.

Anyhow, it's been a lot to handle, this new world, this second life, but I think I'm starting to come around. I was about to take the bar exam (for the third time) the day after I died. They say I can take it here. They say I can become a public defender just like I'd planned on. We'll see. Sure, I'm starting to adjust, but I still have lots of questions: Why can't women get pregnant here? Who are this group called "Borns" that no one will talk about? Why do They always seem to know exactly where you are every second of every day. I'm not certain of a lot these days, but I do know one thing for sure: there is a lot more to Two than people are telling...

Selected Praise for Arrival:

Riveting! -Lauren       
I've already enjoyed the Henry Bins series and the Thomas Prescott series. Maddy Young is another great character. I can't wait to see what happens in the series. -diane_coe 

It is Pirog's best work yet. -railroader 

This book was awesome. It kept my attention from the get go, it was very well written, and the characters were strong. It begins with "dead" Maddy, a law student who just flunked the bar and wakes up in a world where everyone has "died". Through several odd events he finds that everything is not as it seems and begins to question the world he lives in. I don't want to spoil the book, so I will just say that the stuff he discovers, and learns, are life shaking for him. -prea66
