Seeing the world from Jason’s perspective, the reader gains valuable insights into his struggles, now amplified by the guilt and confusion he feels following Andy’s accident. Jason makes the difficult decision to change his partying ways, but soon realizes that it will be a long and challenging road. Like many teens, Jason is faced with many temptations along the way and must find the strength to continue on his new path.
While this book is universal in its themes, I would recommend it to high schoolers in particular. Like Jason, teens everyday are faced with difficult choices and with the reality that the right decision may not always be the easiest. The topics of popularity and faith are all things that are very present in the lives of high schoolers, and teens can learn a lot from seeing how Jason navigates those same issues.
In “The Aftermath,” Jason takes a step back to look at his life and analyze what he does on a daily basis. At 15 years old, Jason is a popular jock, who gets good grades, but most importantly, loves partying. He recognizes that this constant party lifestyle is dangerous at such a young age, and decides to make a switch in his mindset. He soon realizes that because of his reputation, some might be skeptical of the possibility of his transformation. Throughout the book, Jason is tested with rumors and temptation, but he comes out victorious and serves as a good example to not only his friends, but to those who didn’t believe he could do it.
I would recommend this book to anyone in middle school or high school, as it touches on topics very prevalent to this age group: temptation, gossip, popularity, and prayer. It reminds readers that one's reputation in high school will be insignificant to the rest of our lives, and that, therefore, people should focus on more important matters such as their relationship with God.
