After Isaac by Avra Wing is a deep and thoughtful book about a teenage boy, Aaron Saturn, and his family in the aftermath of the sudden and unexpected death of his younger brother, Isaac. It is a profound story exploring the emotional distraught and grief as a result of losing a loved one, and it is about letting go of the blame on oneself, moving on, and living. I liked the use of little references to foreshadow the event that gives the family hope and a reason to ‘live’. Also the stories of the people around the family, such as the going-ons of Emma’s family, the Millers, Owen, and Kim, are intact to add to the emotional journey that Aaron embarks. Which also serves to teach him understanding, and finally allows him to live again.

Personally I loved this book(I'm waiting for my review to be accepted) I definitely recommend it to anyone (over the age of 12 because of the excessive swearing)
