After the Momentby Garret Freymann Weyr
Synopses & Reviews
A new novel by the Printz Honor author Garret Freymann-Weyr, about a boy who discovers what happens when love fails us—or we fail love.
Maia Morland is pretty, only not pretty-pretty. Shes smart. Shes brave. Shes also a self-proclaimed train wreck.
Leigh Hunter is smart, popular, and extremely polite. Hes also completely and forever in love with Maia Morland.

Told with compassion and true understanding, After the Moment is about what happens when a young man discovers that sometimes love fails us, and that, quite often, we fail love.
