After, by Francine Prose, starts out with a very tragic although very real incident. A school shooting occurs 50 miles away from the main character, Tom's, school. Right away things change. First there are new, strict rules, but then people start getting sent away.

This book starts off wonderfully. It keeps making you think about lots of possibilities of the reasons for all of the strangeness. And, although it is worth reading just for the beginning, it loses some steam. By the end, you begin to think, "Well, what really happened?" and "Where's the resolution?" and "Where's the epilogue?" Aside from that, it's a good, very interesting read, and I highly recommend it.

Students began to break the rules, but as soon as they cross the line they are sent to boot camp where they are helped to reform, the only problem is they never come back again. Its up to the kids to find out what it will take to break the grief counsilers control over the school and save the students.
