In journal entries alternating between two timelinesâ€”before and after a tragic accidentâ€”Jennie Englund's heartfelt coming-of-age story, Taylor Before and After follows the year that changes one girlâ€™s life forever.
Before, Taylor Harper is finally popular, sitting with the cool kids at lunch, and maybe, just maybe, getting invited to the biggest, most exclusive party of the year.
After, no one talks to her.
Before, sheâ€™s friends with Brielle Branson, the coolest girl in school.
After, Brielle has become a bully, and Taylorâ€™s her favorite target.
Before, home isnâ€™t perfect, but at least her family is together.
After, Mom wonâ€™t get out of bed, Dad wonâ€™t stop yelling, and Eli...
Through everything, Taylor has her notebook, a diary of the year that one fatal accident tears her life apart. In entries alternating between the first and second semester of her eighth-grade year, she navigates joy and grief, gain and loss, hope and depression.
How can Taylor pick up the pieces of what used to be her social life? How can her house ever feel like home again after everything thatâ€™s happened? And how can she move forward if she canâ€™t stop looking back?
