The Story
After Ever After—Book Review

Eighth grader Jeffrey and his best friend Tad are both “the kids who had cancer” and, as such, are a little different than everyone else. Jeffrey has all the normal teen stuff to worry about, like girls and grades, but also deals with the after-effects of cancer treatment and the worry that the cancer may return. When the hot new girl from California shows interest, Jeffrey is thrown for a loop, but is definitely interested right back at her.
The Scoop
After Ever After—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

This sequel to Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie is an age-appropriate, moving and thought-provoking read. Written from the perspective of a character in remission, this story sheds light on the feelings and physical symptoms that plague cancer survivors. Brain injury/damage as a result of chemotherapy have left the main character with learning deficiencies and he struggles academically as a result. Another character struggles just as much physically as a result of his cancer treatment, and is confined to a wheelchair. One character is referred to as D.A., which we are to understand is short for dumb ass – other than that, language is very mild. A first love story is central to the plot and kissing occurs. Sadly, one of the main characters in this story has a recurrence of cancer and dies at the end of this book.
