after the momentAbout After the Moment

After the Moment is a novel about boys, love, and violence.  Leigh Hunter and Maia Morland meet at a dinner party four years after their high school romance ended in bloodshed, legal charges, and parental meddling.  During the party, Leigh remembers how and why he fell in love with Maia, who liked to describe herself as an anorexic, self-cutting “train-wreck”.  The novel explores how love transforms us, and how failing to meet its complicated demands helps to shape the adults both Leigh and Maia become.

“…an expertly crafted story about a complicated first love.”
— Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“After the Moment is a story of first love, but it’s so much more. It’s a story of perseverance, strength and loyalty, but also of betrayal, pain, and disappointment. It’s a story every reader who has loved and lost can relate to, which is the very reason it’s not one to be missed.”

“Fluid and filled with dramatic pathos, Freymann-Weyr’s book does a terrific job of establishing young love and what happens when it doesn’t go according to plan. Written with great heart, this book caters to readers young and old.”
– Romantic Times Book Reviews

“…An engaging male-coming-of-age tale that explores notions of violence, devotion, and trust against a thought-provoking backdrop of love and war.”
– The Horn Book
