After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick

The featured review for today comes from one of our Round 1 judges for Young Adult Fiction, Ami Jones of the fabulously-named blog Three Turtles and Their Pet Librarian. On her blog, she faithfully relates the most wise and venerable opinions of "three extremely intelligent turtles currently supervising a public library in southern NM."

AfterEverAfter This includes reviews of a wide range of books, including YA Fiction Cybils nominee After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick. Ami's posted a surprisingly funny review of an equally surprisingly funny novel. She describes this book as:

One of those sequels you can't wait to read, because you want to know what happened next, but you are dreading it at the same time – can Sonnenblick possibly pull it off a second time? Can he suck us in from the first page, make every character real, stay away from stereotypes but still hit on the feelings and experiences of cancer survivors worldwide? In short, does he still get it?

Well, does he? You'll have to read the rest of the review to find out!
