More About Afterward by Jennifer Mathieu
 
 
 
Overview

A tragic kidnapping leads to an unlikely friendship in this novel about finding light in the midst of darkness from Jennifer Mathieu, the author of The Truth About Alice.

When eleven-year-old Dylan Anderson is kidnapped, his subsequent rescue leads to the discovery of fifteen-year-old Ethan Jorgensen, who had gone on a bike ride four years earlier and had never been seen again.

Dylan's older sister, Caroline, can't help but wonder what happened to her brother, who is autistic and nonverbal and is not adjusting well to life back home. There's only one person who knows the truth: Ethan. But Ethan isn't sure how he can help Caroline when he is fighting traumatic memories of his own captivity.

Both Caroline and Ethan need a friend, however, and their best option just might be each other.

The Truth About Alice A powerful look at slut-shaming, told through the perspectives of four small-town teens, about how everyone has a motive to bring--and keep--a teen girl down.
Devoted A girl with a controlling, conservative family realizes that her life is her own--if only she can find the courage to fight for it.
Moxie An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texas high school.
