After the Fire
After the Fire has to be one of the best books I have ever read. It is interesting throughout and it keeps the reader engaged right until the very end. I love this book because there is so much suspense and tension which means that the reader just wants to finish the book in one sitting!
This book is set in the 21st century and is about a 17 year old girl called Moonbeam who is kept in a strict Christian environment and is under the influence of Father John. I know what some of you may be thinking, it's going to be a boring book about her life. Well, you are right it is about her life, but it is definitely not boring. Will Hill describes the characters in such a way that you actually feel as if you know them, this actually makes the reader not put down the book as they want to know what happens next.
When I finished this book, I had one problem. On thing I was disappointed with. This was simply that the book had finished and I really wanted a sequel to it or perhaps a more detailed back story. I truly believe that this book has no flaws and is bound to be a great read.
I would 100% recommend this book to young teenagers as it is almost tailor made for teenagers which really helps to empathize with the characters. In addition, this book helps us understand the concept of extremism as it is a topic which is coming up a lot in our world today.
