NOT AFTER EVERYTHING
A gritty but hopeful love story about two struggling teens—great for fans of The Spectacular Now, Willow, and Eleanor and Park.
Tyler has a football scholarship to Stanford, a hot girlfriend, and a reliable army of friends to party with. Then his mom kills herself. And Tyler lets it all go. Now he needs to dodge what his dad is offering (verbal tirades and abuse) and earn what his dad isn’t (money). Tyler finds a job that crashes him into Jordyn, his former childhood friend turned angry-loner goth-girl. She brings Tyler an unexpected reprieve from the never-ending pity party his life has become. How could he not fall for her? But with his dad more brutally unpredictable than ever, Tyler knows he can’t risk bringing Jordyn too deeply into the chaos. So when violence rocks his world again, will it be Jordyn who shows him the way to a hopeful future? Or after everything, will Tyler have to find it in himself?
Praise for Not After Everything
“Tragic and intense, but ultimately hopeful. The protagonists are fully developed and three-dimensional teens and their story is captivating. Fans of Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything should add this to their must-read lists. A moving story with tons of heart.” —School Library Journal
“Tough and uncompromising . . . The voice of a real teen searching for answers while walking a razor-thin fence between salvaging what remains or throwing it all away . . . Raw and unforgettable.” —Kirkus (starred review)
“Believable dialogue and emotions—especially Tyler’s simmering rage at the outset of the novel—make this a solid first showing.”—Publisher’s Weekly
“If you never thought a single book could make you laugh, cry, scream, ache, throw things at the wall, and then beg for more, then you’ve never read Not After Everything. Michelle Levy doesn’t just join the all-star pool of contemporary young adult authors, she rises straight to the top.” —Jessica Brody, bestselling author of 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, A Week of Mondays, and the Unremembered trilogy
“One of the best young adult novels I’ve ever read.” —Jennifer Echols, award-winning author of Endless Summer and Forget You
