AFTERSHOCK was such an exciting, heart stopping book. I couldn't put it down. I'm not really that into reading, but my teacher recommended it and it's one of the few books I enjoyed. I liked the use of definitions at the beginning of every chapter, and the word DEFINE in the last sentence. I'm writing a paper about that. I read the reviews too. The guy from Voya has something wrong with his brain if he doesn't think this book is gritty. It should be made into a movie.

Life can completely change in a moment. Seventeen-year-old Adam's life changes the moment his family's car hits a deer on a back road in Idaho. He and his bookstore-owning, pacifist parents have traveled from Rhode Island for a peace vigil, but only Adam will be heading home. His parents die instantly leaving Adam helpless on the side of the road.

In shock, Adam begins walking. His mind is spinning with past memories and present pain. His only constant, steady thought? To get home. This journey without any emotional and financial support would be challenging enough, but to complicate matters Adam finds he can't speak.

Adam's journey is filled with dangerous situations, a few truly kind and generous people, and others out to make his life miserable. Through his exhaustion and hunger he continues to focus on the life he had in Rhode Island. Dreams of the family's bookstore, his girlfriend Mira, and even his irritating Aunt Margarite and her son, Joey, keep Adam heading toward hope and home.

AFTERSHOCK is a tale of survival and the compelling human need to carry on even after heartbreaking tragedy. Adam's strength and courage will touch all who read his story.

This book is about growing up as a boy in America. Even though I'm a girl, I could totally relate to Adam and his story. This book was about death, love, sex, friendship and family. I laughed and cried while reading it.

I really enjoyed the writing style and the overall emotion in this book. Adam gets really frustrating at times but in the end it would be hard to undterstand what he must be going through. This is a fast read, but is really worth it.
