Overview

“Don’t get me wrong. I loved my sister. I never, not once, wished her dead.”

Brady and Sabine Wilson are sisters born eleven months apart, but they couldn’t be more different. Popular Sabine, the head cheerleader dating the high school hunk, seems to have all the luck, while her younger, artsy sister "Brady Brooder" is a loner who prefers the sidelines to the limelight.

After Sabine dies in a horrific cheerleading accident, grief unravels Brady and her family. Once recognized for her artistic talent, 17-year-old Brady finds herself questioning the value of everything she once held dear. Her best friend betrays her. Her parents’ marriage is crumbling. And the boy everyone blames for the accident seems to be her only ally in the search for answers in the wake of her sister’s death. As an unlikely friendship emerges, Brady learns more about Sabine—and love—than she bargained for.

    I LOVED this book. The story and the characters pulled me in immediately and stayed with me days after I finished reading it. I highly recommend The Moment Before, especially for moms who want to share a good book with their teenage daughters. This is definitely one you will both enjoy. Suzy is a phenomenal storyteller and an amazing writer.

    I read this book in a weekend, and I rarely do that! This book

    I read this book in a weekend, and I rarely do that! This book was a real "page-turner" for me. I connected with the fascinating main character (Brady), and how she must learn to navigate the ever-changing landscape; I have thought about her a lot , even after finishing the book. I really want to know more about her. I'm sure everyone will find a different character(or plot twist) in this book that will stay with them for a long time. Expertly written!

    Serious subjects of loss and abuse are described in authentic, entertaining way. Initially skeptical, knowing it was about high school students, and seeing the cheerleader on the cover, I thought it wouldn't be "adult" enough for my tastes. But I'd heard the novel was excellent, so I thought I'd give it a try. 
    The protagonist Brady is in grief over her sister's death, and it's the sister who was the cheerleader; Brady expresses herself through visual art. What immediately set this book above and beyond most novels dealing with loss are the depth of characterization, the author's command of the serious subject matter, and the excellent writing, while keeping a lively pace and supplying a captivating plot. There is a subplot about abuse as well. Once I began the book I did not want to set it down.

    The genuine details that relate to the setting in the Portland, Oregon area add to the fun. There is a hipness to the author's voice that comes from the author's obvious understanding of the real lives of current adolescents.

    The novel is a great beach read for adults, and will satisfy mature adolescents and readers who are informed enough to relate to the actual experiences of young people today. It was a thoroughly entertaining and satisfying read. For days after, I kept missing Brady, as if she'd become a friend.

    This YA book was not really for young adults.

    I found this young adult book lacking on many levels. It is more of an adult book. The sister dies but not in a cheer leading accident. This is very violent and filled with adult subject matter. There is cursing. I would not any young person younger than18 to read this book. It made me nervous and uncomfortable, not because of sexual situations but because of subject matter. For readers at LEAST 17 years old and up.
