“After Ever After is Jordan Sonnenblick's best book yet. He is spot on with his adolescent male characters. You don't have to read Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie to enjoy this sequel, but you'll get more out of both books if you do. Jeffrey has survived cancer, but not without physical damage from treatment. He deals with incredible pressure, standardized tests, friendships, a first crush, and more with determination, a dash of self-pity, and lots of humor.”

An amazing sequel to the groundbreaking debut, DRUMS, GIRLS & DANGEROUS PIE.
Jeffrey isn't a little boy with cancer anymore. He's a teen who's in remission, but life still feels fragile. The aftereffects of treatment have left Jeffrey with an inability to be a great student or to walk without limping. His parents still worry about him. His older brother, Steven, lost it and took off to Africa to be in a drumming circle and "find himself." Jeffrey has a little soul searching to do, too, which begins with his escalating anger at Steven, an old friend who is keeping something secret, and a girl who is way out of his league but who thinks he's cute.
