Matilda, St Helen and St Katharine

After the Fire

I liked this book because of all the mysteries behind it. I enjoyed how the answer built up over the course of the book. The way it was written was very interesting, and I thought it worked for the book.
The book is based on the life of Moonbeam, a child living in a religious cult and the challenges she faces. Father John, who leads the cult, loves control and hates people who come from outside the fence. The whole book is about events leading up to and the big thing that happens in Moonbeams point of view.
In the book the chapters are split into: before and after. I think this is a very affective in a way of drawing you in. Another thing I enjoyed was the constant suspense about what has happened and what is going to happen next really works. I found the plot drawing me in as it was full of twists and turns, but parts of the book were quite surprising. Because of this, I would not recommend this to younger readers (11+) as some parts would be inappropriate. I would rate this book 8.5/10 as I enjoyed how it was written and the truth behind it. The fact that there are religious cults around the world shocked me at first.
