A sensitive look at the wake of a friend’s suicide, infused with genuine emotion, hope, and just enough well-placed romance
— Booklist
A striking debut and an eerily good book ... The After Girls is a vivid portrayal of interrupted lives and enduring friendships. It is as much about the known as the unknown and as much about healing as loss.
— Michael Northrop, author of Trapped and Gentlemen

Ella, Astrid, and Sydney were planning the perfect summer after high school graduation. But when Astrid commits suicide in a lonely cabin, the other girls' worlds are shattered. How could their best friend have done this--to herself and to them? They knew everything about Astrid. Shouldn't they have seen this coming? Couldn't they have saved her?

As Ella hunts for the truth, and Sydney tries to dull the pain, a chilling message from Astrid leaves them wondering whether their beloved friend is communicating from the after life. The girls embark on a journey to uncover Astrid's dark secrets. The answers to those questions--questions they never dreamed of asking--will change their lives forever.

An arresting testimony to the haunting power of friendships, The After Girls is a story that understands what it is to be passionate, confused, and on the brink. I loved every resonant word.
— Micol Ostow, author of Family
Filled with relationship entanglements, unanswered questions, and long-buried secrets tinged with the supernatural, The After Girls captivates the reader long after the secrets of Astrid’s life are revealed.
