Everlost by Neal Shusterman
Teens Nick and Allie are in a car accident that kills both of them. When they wake up they find themselves stuck on Earth in the ghostly world of Everlost. Allie is determined to find her way home and back to life so the two new friends begin walking. But Everlost is full of dangers. When Afterlights - as the ghosts are called - walk in areas that are not part of the dead world they can sink into the ground and end up at the center of the Earth. Some of the citizens of Everlost have formed gangs that harass other Afterlights. And there are rumors of a terrible monster called The McGill. When Allie and Nick arrive in New York City and find safety at the site of the destroyed twin towers they are happy to stay there. But Allie begins to wonder if their new home run by Mary Hightower is actually another type of trap for the lost souls.
