Hopeful beautifully written and nothing short of spectacular The Beginning of After wraps the reader in for a long and amazing journey full of laughs and tears and smiles as Laurel and David make their trip to the after from the beginning I simply could not have asked for a better contemporary read and I am sure many will agree They say everything can change in one uick second but Laurel never realized this until that fateful day when everything fell apart Before that day Laurel was the average girl smart shy and pleasant She had a picture perfect family life a best friend who she could count on and the promise of an amazing future However everything changes when a police offer arrives at the front door bringing with him sad news Laurel’s parents and brothers have been involved in a car accident and are now dead Filled with grief and anger Laurel does not know what to do or who to blame Should it her neighbor Mr Kaufman because he drove the car or should it be herself for not being there to save the day Either way Laurel does know one thing; she should not be feeling strange and new things for David the local bad boy and Mr Kaufman’s son Nevertheless she cannot stop herself because with David she can relate He understands where she is coming from and best of all he is not tiptoeing around her like everyone else is Though are they meant to be or this one big mess in the making Moreover will she ever be able to move on Only time and pages can tell in this fantastic story of grief loss and moving onTo begin with I loved the characters in this especially Laurel and David Charming and sweet Laurel was relatable and likable from the start There wasn’t a moment where I wasn’t cheering her on from the sidelines However what I liked best about her was the fact that I feel anyone would be able to resonate with her feelings over death and loss David on the other hand was the perfect example of the “bad boy” Misunderstood yet charismatic in his own right David was the type of boy a reader cannot help but love I particularly adored his relationship with Laurel not only because of the way it was developed slowly finally a YA relationship that takes time to develop but it was based on so much than just attraction instead feelings and actions played a big role and I loved that The side characters in this were also a breath of fresh air as each one had their own distinctive personality that added an extra flavor to the storyMoving on while The Beginning of After basic premise is the basic death cliché Jennifer Castle fully brought it alive once again and made it her own From the plot lines to the characters and finally the writing each played such a huge part in making this story simply fantastic I particularly enjoyed seeing Laurel deal with day to day life such as her volunteer work and school because they added layers and charm Best of all I loved that The Beginning of After was so much than just a “death” book instead it was about moving on and coming to peace with the past while keeping part of it closeAs mentioned before Castle’s writing was also fabulous She truly knows how to write an emotional read which makes me truly think she’s going to be the next big gem in YA So pick up some tissues and prepare for a long night as Jennifer Castle’s spectacular debut is one you will not be able to put down once you start not even for a second Grade A

In and out of Laurel’s life and to whom she finds herself attracted against her better judgment She will forever be connected to him by their mutual loss a connection that will change them both in unexpected waysJennifer Castle’s debut novel is a heart wrenching surprisingly witty testament to how drastically life can change in the span of a single momen. I'm not really sure how to review this book I read it a couple of weeks ago and I've forgotten a lot of the things that happened so I don't think that's a very glowing recommendation It definitely didn't stay with me but I do remember it wasn't terrible The writing is pretty good the characters are actually fairly uniue and all have their own issues The pacing just seemed to drag and I felt like there was a lot in there that just didn't need to be there Laurel's entire family is killed in a car accident at the beginning of the book and though we travel with her through the grieving process not once did I even feel the beginning of tears I simply didn't care The writing is not emotional at all and that's a bit of a killer when you're trying to write a story that reuires emotional depth It all felt kind of wooden Like a textbook Laurel annoyed me with all of her wallowing and I wanted to like David but found I never really got to know David since he's hardly ever in the story Jennifer Castle has potential but if she's going to craft stories around severe emotional upheavals she needs to learn how to write emotions

The Beginning of AfterAther of her bad boy neighbor David Kaufman whose mother is also killed In the aftermath of the tragedy Laurel navigates a new reality in which she and her best friend grow apart boys may or may not be approaching her out of pity overpowering memories lurk everywhere and Mr Kaufman is comatose but still very much alive Through it all there is David who swoops. In all fairness this probably deserves to be rounded up to 3 but I was so disappointed I just can't bring myself to do it The Beginning of After tells the story of Laurel and the way her life changes after her parents and younger brother are killed in a car accident during her junior year of high school I expected an intensely emotional read one of grief and sorrow and healing however what I got was mostly a story about boys and prom dates While Laurel's grief was poignant and well done in some instances mostly I felt as though the author was ticking off check boxes every few chapters making sure she hit every stage in the Kublar Ross model It felt a little obvious and heavy handed however I don't think it would have been a detriment to the book entirely had the author not also clouded the story with unnecessary and cliched love interest nonsense If you're seventeen years old and life as you have known it has been obliterated is prom of all things going to be on your radar I understand the need to grapple for normalcy when everything else in life is out of your control but the shift in tone from not being able to get out of bed to dress shopping and making out and of course trying to decide between two boys was too much It made Laurel seem shallow and turned the book into your typical YA fare with a little death thrown in for a new spin Overall The Beginning of After missed the mark for me
