After the Fire

After the Fire was a very exciting book. I liked how it switched from Past to Present and how the writer didn't tell us what happened in the fire, in the prologue. Instead he drip-fed it.
One thing I did not like about this book was in the prologue as there was a lot of "and".
The story was about a girl called Moonbeam who lives in an extreme Christian camp. It is run by someone called Father John. Then one day her friend Honey is locked in a box with very little food and water so Moonbeam calls the police. When the police come, someone sets fire to the camp. She then goes to a hospital/prison place where she gets extremely intense counselling sessions to try and work out what happens.
I would recommend this to people of ages 14 and over, as it involves some strong language, and a brief description of suicide.
