After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick

After Ever AfterBrilliant. Sonnenblick delivers a sequel that is just as gripping as Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. After Ever After is about Jeffrey, who was diagnosed with leukemia in Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie. We first meet Jeffrey as a 5 year old, but now he is in 8th grade we get to hear his story. He struggles with school because of the problems caused by the cancer treatments and still is viewed by everyone as “a cancer survivor” instead of just an 8th grade boy. He is best friends with another cancer survivor, Tad, and even has a crush on a cute girl. He and his best friend make a vow to each other that Tad (who gets around in a wheelchair) will walk across the stage for graduation and Jeffrey will pass math. But soon things are happening that Jeffrey is at first unaware of and it will take all of his inner strength to get through the year. A wonderfully poignant and uplifting story that promises to be even more popular than Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie. Thank you, Jordan Sonnenblick! We need more stories as well done as After Ever After!
