Afterward
by Jennifer Mathieu 
Expected publication: September 20th 2016

 

When Caroline's little brother is kidnapped, his subsequent rescue leads to the discovery of Ethan, a teenager who has been living with the kidnapper since he was a young child himself. In the aftermath, Caroline can't help but wonder what Ethan knows about everything that happened to her brother, who is not readjusting well to life at home. And although Ethan is desperate for a friend, he can't see Caroline without experiencing a resurgence of traumatic memories. But after the media circus surrounding the kidnappings departs from their small Texas town, both Caroline and Ethan find that they need a friend--and their best option just might be each other.

 

 

 

 

Goodreads

 

 

This is a well written and thought provoking read with well developed characters. The author pulls you into the story line and I often found it hard to put this book down. I recommend this contemporary and heartfelt read.
