After Tuesday

Family really is a pain…especially when your father is an addict.

For the last two years, high school senior Ruby has been her own rock and solace. She has learned to depend only on herself and hides her family's issues by keeping herself somewhat unnoticeable. Despite her isolation, Ruby has intrigued the affections of someone unexpected. Finding herself loving life once again as his persistence sparks a romance awakening a well-protected heart. 

While Ruby’s relationship with her father is constantly teetering, her new-found affection continues to blossom into something more than she ever thought possible. Soon, Ruby comes to realize that opening up your heart means being susceptible to love and disappointment.

YA-M: This book contains mature content including profanity, drug/alcohol use, and sexual situations/language.

My 3 Star Review!!

After Tuesday is a book about first loves and the struggles that can come with them. Ruby is trying to balance being a teenager with an addict of a father, while starting a new relationship. Ruby moved from Colorado to Illinois with her father her sophomore year of high school, and that’s when things took a turn for the worst with her dad. Ruby meets Brent and their relationship blossoms, until Ruby can no longer hide her father’s addiction. Ruby, her father, and Brent all find out the hard way that you can’t control everyone’s decisions and the outcome because of those decisions. 

I liked After Tuesday. It was a quick cute read. Ruby is a great character that teenagers in real life could relate to. She was dealt a tough hand, but does what she can to keep herself in the game. Brent is amazing!! I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick read.
