The book Afterward by Jennifer Mathieu is told in the POV of Ethan, a boy who was kidnapped and found four years later, and Caroline, a girl whose autistic younger brother was kidnapped for a few days. The story moves forward as Caroline tries to find out what happened to her brother by talking to Ethan, and Ethan deals with triggering flashbacks and memories.
This book talks about trauma and how to move on for it. I thought the plots were amazing, and some of the quotes were deep and insightful.
The ending though…I wouldn’t really call it an ending. It just abruptly cuts off. I was disappointed because the book was really good.
