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.

I tend to like realistic fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy books.
A great second book with some further closer on Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie told from a different perspective.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
This book is short and when I feel I have to return a book I never listents to the entire book. The book was found in my second favorite category: Teens. Fiction is my absolute favorite category. As an adult I feel the "teens" category often deals with social dilemma's in a more honest way. Sometimes, like in this book the teen stamp is too heavy.

I must confess: I love the way he makes books come to life, how he is able to sound bored if the characters demands it.
