Publisher's Summary

Everyone is raving about Aftercare Instructions, Bonnie Pipkin's electric, format-crushing debut about furious friendship, crazy love, and unexpected hope.

"Troubled". That's 17-year-old Genesis according to her small New Jersey town. She finds refuge and stability in her relationship with her boyfriend, Peter - until he abandons her at a Planned Parenthood clinic during their appointment to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. The betrayal causes Gen to question everything.

As Gen pushes herself forward to find her new identity without Peter, she must also confront her most painful memories. Through the lens of an ongoing four-act play within the novel, the fantasy of their undying love unravels line by line, scene by scene. Digging deeper into her past while exploring the underground theater world of New York City, she rediscovers a long forgotten dream. But it's when Gen lets go of her history, the one she thinks she knows, that she's finally able to embrace the complicated, chaotic true story of her life - and take center stage.
