**eBook Edition** What happens when you can't live with before?

What happens when you’re not the cool kid at school anymore? Teenager CJ has been banished to the country to live with his grandparents. No one asks him if he wants to be there. It seems like no one really cares. And no matter how hard he tries to outrun it, trouble seems to follow him wherever he goes. After is a thought-provoking coming-of-age novel by award-winning Australian author Sue Lawson. Young adult fiction readers will be captivated by this multi-layered story of loss, difference and acceptance. Short-listed for the 2012 Young Australians’ Best Book Award (YAABA). For more realistic YA by Sue, read Allie McGregor’s True Colours, Finding Darcy, Dare You, Pan’s Whisper, Forget Me Not and You Don’t Even Know. Sue’s website is “There is a sense of tension, a feeling of intrigue, and an underlying uncertainty about were things will head which keeps the reader on edge throughout the novel ... The honesty and emotion in this book makes it special.” – Reading Time magazine “Cleverly constructed to create a dramatic and intriguing story so the reader is kept in suspense right up to the powerful ending.” – Viewpoint “A tension-filled novel featuring dysfunctional families, school bullying and football.” – Fiction Focus
