After Ever After (YA)
Jeff had cancer at a long age. Due to side effects of his cancer treatment, he has a learning disability, especially when it comes to Math. New educational regulations are now requiring all students in the state to pass a standardized test before being promoted to high school. Jeff is convinced but his friend Tad makes it his mission to tutor Jeff. Tad also had cancer when he was a child and is in a wheelchair. Jeff decides if he's going to get tutored by Tad, he will work on getting Tad to walk across the stage at 8th grade graduation. Jeff does not realize that Tad has some more pressing issues to handle.
This book was a great, quick read. The characters were well developed and this book had a lot of humor in it. There were also tearjerker parts. This book also had a romance aspect to it when Jeff falls for the pretty new girl.
I really enjoyed this book.
