This heartfelt novel highlights the fractures in a tween's life as her family deals with the aftermath of a tragic accident. Set in a private school on Oahu, Taylor, Before and After by Jennie Englund is an emotional story of one girl's hopes, fears, and growth through tragedy. The narrative flips back and forth between two timelines: before and after a car accident, in which eighth grader Taylor Harper is a passenger-and her brother is the driver. Before the accident, Taylor was making progress toward becoming popular, navigating the pressures of friends, frenemies, and a cut-throat initiation challenge by the cool crowd. But after, Taylor finds herself ostracized, bullied, and wrestling with a steadily deteriorating home life. Taylor's voice moves fluidly between effervescent and lonely in this emotional middle grade read that tackles grief and depression-and explores the journey back to healing and self-acceptance.
