I’ve been googling plot elements from this book for years, and the closest I’ve come is a Yahoo Answers question that confirms my vague description but offered no book suggestions.
It isn’t among the afterlife stories discussed in this askmefi
The book (as I can recall): Read during the late 1980s or early 1990s. Possibly purchased through the Scholastic book sale. Protagonist was a young teenage boy who had been in a car (?) accident. While in a coma, he awakens in a sort of afterlife/limbo. He teams up with a dead teen girl and a man who had been in the afterlife since neolithic times. They travel the land of the dead trying to get the boy back to his life. That’s all I recall.
