"I'm not dead. I'm still me. I still have a body and everything."     "You are still you but you don't have a body. What you're seeing is a thought form." He points to a tall gold urn up by the minister. "Your body is in there. You were cremated."     Thunk thunk, thunk thunk. My heart pounds in my chest. Dread mushrooms in my stomach. Sweat beads on my forehead. "But everybody knows death is the end. That there's nothing left but matter."     "Death is only the beginning, Logan. Hannah knows that. Lots of people do."
Logan always takes the easy way out. After a night of drinking and driving he wakes up to find he has been involved in a senseless car accident and is dead. With the help of his guide, Wade, and the spirit of his grandmother, he realizes he has taken the wrong exit—he wasn't meant to die. His life had a purpose—to save his sister—but he took the easy way out and he failed. Now, before he can rest in peace, he has to try and save his sister from a future no child should face. He will only get one chance and he cannot afford to fail this time—for Amy’s sake and for his own.

Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children's Books - November 1, 2008
"Wrenching issues are Orca Soundings forte as this 2.8 reading level meets struggling readers with a high-interest and attention-grabbing plot."
Washington State Review Group - April 1, 2007

Resource Links - October 1, 2006
"Reading about how Logan struggles with these issues, and more, is the main pleasure of the book. Exit Point is a wonderful reading experience and Langston deserves full credit for having written such a thoughtful, and thought provoking, book."
Canadian Bookseller - January 1, 2006
“An encouraging thought remains with readers: maybe it’s never too late for second chances.”
