The ArchivedIn The Archived by Victoria Schwab, Mackenzie (Mac) Bishop is a Keeper like her Da (her grandfather). Her job is to prevent Histories from escaping from the Archive into the world of the living.

When you die your body is stored in the Archive where the Librarians can read your life story – your history. The dead sleep in the Archive but sometimes a History will awake and wander the Narrows. It is the job of a Keeper to usher the History back through the correct door to the Archive.

Mac is a talented Keeper but the loss of her ten-year-old brother has hit her hard. Then she discovers that Histories are being deliberately altered and the Archive itself is in danger.

A fascinating concept, this novel deals with loss and what it is that makes us who we are.
