Review: The After Girls
Purchase The After Girls here.
Ella, Astrid, and Sydney were planning the perfect summer after high school graduation. But when Astrid commits suicide in a lonely cabin, the other girls' worlds are shattered. How could their best friend have done this--to herself and to them? They knew everything about Astrid. Shouldn't they have seen this coming? Couldn't they have saved her?
As Ella hunts for the truth, and Sydney tries to dull the pain, a chilling message from Astrid leaves them wondering whether their beloved friend is communicating from the after life. The girls embark on a journey to uncover Astrid's dark secrets. The answers to those questions--questions they never dreamed of asking--will change their lives forever.
Pretty Little Liars was, is, and always will be my favourite guilty pleasure. I read the entire book series from the time I got a free ebook copy of the first book, pretty much devouring all the fun drama and twists. The After Girls brings that same kind of drama and mystery and town secrets back. However, in this book, the main character has committed suicide rather than been murdered, and her friends are left to pick up the pieces and attempt to find out what happened, all with the aid of some crazy adults and yummy boys. This book is a quick read. It's interesting and dramatic, with the right amount of respect for what happens when a girl commits suicide. What happens After.
Until next time, happy reading!
