A Masterful Sequel to a Masterpiece

"But most of my earliest memories are of spinal taps, throwing up for two hours straight on my birthday, watching my own hair fall out while my friends were worried about learning how to write their names in crayon. And I guess Steven has lot of those shocks, too, through being my brother. But that's still not the same as being me."

Calling all teachers, parents and educators: Jordan Sonnenblick might just be the most important young adult author on the market! This man has found a niche that millions of teenagers have been desperately waiting to be filled. In a delicate way that blends good humor with tough reality, his books address critical issues related to family, friendship, school, life and death. Sonnenblick obviously understands what kids are going through and knows how to help them feel more comfortable with their daily challenges and goals through wholesome literature. I wish more authors would write with such purpose and passion to spread meaningful messages to young readers.

In "Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie," Jeffrey was fighting cancer as his older brother, then 8th-grader Steven, threw his whole life into providing the necessary support for his sick brother. Now, in this sequel to "Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie," Jeffrey is in remission. In the aftermath of his sickness, a lot has changed besides his health status. Jeffrey's older brother has gone on hiatus to Africa to escape the responsibilities that he couldn't avoid when he was playing second fiddle to his Jeffrey's cancer battle. Their parents continue to worry about finances and state testing requirements following the imposing learning disabilities cancer treatments and medications have handed their young son. Jeffrey's best friend, Tad, also has his share of challenges to worry about. Together, they face the mystic challenges of deciphering the baffling words and actions of girls, setting seemingly unreachable goals, and clearing up the cloudy meaning of life.

This book hit home for me in many ways. One example is that it reminded me of my 10th grade year, when my older brother - my best friend, idol and mentor throughout my grade school years - joined the Marine Corps and moved overseas to Japan. This person I'd counted on for so long was suddenly nowhere to be found. I remember how hard it was for me to deal with the void he'd left behind. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to similar feelings of loss and abandonment.

"I wish I could remember now what I was thinking during those next two hours, because they were the last good hours I was going to have for a long time. But nobody ever tells you in advance when you should concentrate on the good times - that's why you're supposed to try to do it every day."

Be sure to read "After Ever After" sooner rather than later! Books don't get much better than this one!
