Waiting on Wednesday (64)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

The Beginning of After
by Jennifer Castle

Release Date:
September 6, 2011


Sixteen-year-old Laurel's world changes instantly when her parents and brother are killed in a terrible car accident. Behind the wheel is the father of her bad-boy neighbor, David Kaufman, whose mother is also killed. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Laurel navigates a new world in which she and her best friend grow apart, boys may or may not be approaching her out of pity, overpowering memories lurk everywhere, and Mr. Kaufman is comatose but still very much alive. Through it all, there is David, who swoops in and out of Laurel's life and to whom she finds herself attracted against her better judgment. She will forever be connected to him by their mutual loss, a connection that will change them both in unexpected ways.

Fans of emotionally true and heartfelt novels, such as Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall and If I Stay by Gayle Forman, will fall in love with Jennifer Castle’s incandescent debut novel...a heart wrenching, surprisingly witty testament to how drastically life can change in the span of a single moment.


Oh my gosh. This is the kind of book that I would love. It's emotional, intense, and thoughtful. With an addition of romance, what more can you ask for?
