Even though the cancer should be far behind him, Jeffrey still worries that it will return. He's got normal teen stuff to deal with, too - friends, parents, girls, school. Normally, he'd ask his older brother, Steven, for advice. But Steven, always the trusty, responsible one, is finally rebelling and has taken off to Africa to join a drumming circle and find himself. Jeffrey feels abandoned. Meanwhile, his best friend, Tad, is hatching some kind of secretive, crazy plan involving eighth-grade graduation. And Lindsey Abraham, a way hot girl who is new to the school, thinks Jeffrey's cute... which totally freaks him out. There's a lot about life that cancer has prepared Jeffrey for, but there's a lot that's brand-new. Now it's time for him to learn not only how to fight for himself but to stick up for the people he loves.

Surprising and delightful at every turn, After Ever After is a real, tender, hopeful, and funny story about what happens when you stop surviving and start living again.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phoebe | 2/5/2014

    " I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Jordan Sonnenblick is one of my favorite authors. I cried all through this book and all through the companion book, Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. I loved seeing everything from Jeffrey's point of view after reading it all from his brother's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JoAnn | 1/31/2014

    " i didn't really like the voice though... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shauna | 1/13/2014

    " Sonnenblick has a gift for making me laugh, cry, and then do both at the same time and this sequel to "Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie" did not disappoint. I really don't know what else to say except to recommend that you read it. You won't be sorry. And it is one of those books that makes me feel that my time was well spent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cupcakegal | 1/12/2014

    " Really good except I didn't like it was so sad at the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristinagriffin | 1/12/2014

    " It was a sad, but funny and happy story. I like how it is a story as the sequel to Drums, girls and dangerous pie, but has the younger brother telling the story instead of the older brother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbie | 12/26/2013

    " Beth Gerall recommended this book in a NoveList column. Two High School boys who have been friends since 4th grade deal with long term effects of cancer treatment from their early childhood. Witty and touching; I laughed, I cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 7709autumn | 12/23/2013

    " I thought that this was a really good book. I think that Jordan Sonnenblick did a good job of writing the book in the perspective of Jeffery as a teenager. I think that there were some comparisons between the sequels, for example both books started as a 8th grade reflection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth/Sr. Elizabeth | 12/19/2013

    " Amazing sequel to Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. Funny, tender, and real. Read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 12/13/2013

    " Truly a great book for not just young adults but for anyone. It's intended for middle school and into high school, but once you get into the story you don't want to put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ms. Foley | 12/10/2013

    " A great companion to "Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie"--loved this one too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth Kesler | 12/6/2013

    " This book is really good. I don't usually find good books to read, but this is one of them. I don't want to spoil anything, so all I will say is that the characters were really thought out and the story line is awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 11/14/2013

    " Now it's Jeffrey's turn as an 8th grader. (He's the younger brother from Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie.) He also has a significant year as he develops a better relationship with his parents, faces academic challenges, experience first love, and learns the true meaning of friendship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 11/4/2013

    " Interesting story, mildly funny, I've never read a book like this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 7709dylan | 6/18/2013

    " OK not nearly as good as the first one,could've been a lot better if the conflict wasn't rushed i think that Sonneblick didn't complete the final book as well as i thought he would. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyl | 3/31/2013

    " This was a pretty amazing story about the strength of friendship in the midst of tragety. I will be looking for more of Jordan Sonnenblick books at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/18/2013

    " Taken from a suggestion from someone else and one of the few YA books I read nowadays, this was a really good book. Flowed well, gave a different perspective than usual, created characters you cheered for. On my notes I wrote, "really, really good." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 8/22/2012

    " This is a teen novel about a serious subject done with a really great humor. I enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridgett Pennington | 3/1/2012

    " I thought the book was a little slow starting off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Tran | 2/2/2012

    " Amazing work, but it's too sad. Just from the way things were going, I knew someone was going to die. But the author made the story realistic, and I like that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sasha | 5/16/2011

    " Very enthusiastic and brings strength to many people that think their world is going to end because of something every small when there is other people in this world that are dying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline | 5/9/2011

    " I loved Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. This book is just as good (maybe better). Jeffery is now in 8th grade and he tells his story--which is totally different than his older brother's. Readers will connect with these characters as they struggle to define what really is important in life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jasmine | 5/8/2011

    " I didn't like this one as much as the first where his brother was more involved. This one was sadder than drums, girls and dangerous pie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 4/29/2011

    " Ok he did it again, I totally cried at the end of this book. Darn that Jordan Sonnenblick! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 4/16/2011

    " Solid YA (middle school stuff). I will say that I was crying by the end, and I happened to be driving to work at the time, so that was awkward. I did get to liking the characters, and didn't even realize it was a sequel - so it was well done in a way that it could totally stand alone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh | 4/16/2011

    " Very funny, inspirational and touching. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daria | 4/11/2011

    " I really enjoy Jordan Sonnenblick's books and I was very excited to read the story of Jeffrey Alper (the younger brother from Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie). As with Sonnenblick's other books, this story has a nice mix of funny, serious, and touching parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 4/4/2011

    " I really liked this book! It was a great story of friendship and the effects of cancer. This is a great read, I found myself laughing and crying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 3/29/2011

    " Funny and heart wrenching at the same time. Great portrayal of a teenage cancer surviver. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mesha | 3/27/2011

    " Wow! This book wasn't at all what I expected. It was heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time. It made me laugh and cry and everything in between. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cooper | 3/23/2011

    " This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. Thad really developed throughout the book. The only thing I didn't like about it was the death of Thad at the end! "
