Allie outsmarts the McGill, who is unmasked by Mary and returned to the form of a human boy when Mary shows a picture of him. Wherever Neal goes, he quickly earns a reputation as a storyteller and dynamic speaker. It is implied that this fate has befallen to a great many afterlights.
For that, it gets a middle-ground rating. As I said before, Everlost was extremely tame compared to my previous Shusterman experience.
