Every Moment After

D the small town of East Ridge New Jersey and left eighteen first graders in their classroom dead survivors and recent high school graduates Matt Simpson and Cole Hewitt are still navigating their guilt and trying to move beyond the shadow of their town's grie. Every Moment After follows the story of two teenage boys Matt and Cole in the summer after their high school graduation When they were in first grade eighteen of their classmates were killed in a school shooting In the summer after their senior year they re still navigating guilt grief and what it means to move on This was an interesting take on a school shooting story that I haven t seen before Most of the other books I ve read take place during the shooting itself or maybe one or two years later So seeing this story set eleven years after the shooting was a welcome difference I think the book does a good job of showing lingering trauma and how an event like this has ripple effects that continue to impact the town and the people in it I thought that Matt and Cole were two well fleshed out characters with their own voices I thought that their reactions and feelings about the shooting were all believable Matt has a great sense of guilt because he stayed home sick the day of the shooting and he feels like maybe he wasn t supposed to live Cole survived the shooting but has no memories of the event itself but he has to deal with being the boy in the picture that made him the poster child of the shooting My two complaints about this book are that it was a little bit longer than it needed to be and that the romance didn t seem necessary I think if the book was shortened and focused on Matt and Cole and their journey in figuring out how to try and move on it would ve been better Overall I enjoyed this book a lot I think it brings something different to the table when it comes to books about school shootings

read Every Moment After

F Will Cole and Matt ever be able to truly leave the ghosts of East Ridge behind Do they even want to As they grapple with changing relationships falling in love and growing apart these two friends must face the uestion of how to move on and truly begin living. 45 I loved this book Having 3 sons I wasn t sure I could read a story about a school shooting but it wasn t about the shootingit was about the aftermath or the every moment after which is the aptly named title The relationship between Cole and Matthew was so touching and genuine and importantly realistic The dialogue between the two of them is exactly how 18 year olds speak to each other I also loved the interactions with the other characters especially the autistic surviving brother Paul This book makes you think about things you probably never think aboutthe far reaching long term effects of a school shooting without being political It is powerful and poignant insight into survivor s guilt and grief in all its forms the wreckage left in the wake of such unspeakable violence I am so glad the author chose to leave the details of the shooting out of the narrative as it was not necessary to the story But as sad as a story as this is you are left with a sense of hopethat although each character holds within them a deep wound that can never fully heal their will to survive to connect to love and to grow will carry them through their next chaptersand that they will always be supported by each other and by their community I loved this book from the beginning and from every moment after
