At the start of her junior year, Savannah had it all: popularity, money, cheerleading, a boyfriend, and a best friend. Unfortunately, when you have it all, you risk losing everything. After a tragic accident forever changes her life and the lives of her friends, Savannah finds herself faced with a decision to make. She can try to slip back into her old life, flaws and all, or she can try to redefine herself for her last year of high school. Is it even possible that Savannah can change after having everything go her way for 18 years?
 Jacob has nothing to lose. He has seen one too many schools and wants nothing more than to graduate, so he can finally stay in one place for more than a year. In fact, Jacob thinks he has every clique and student pegged after switching schools so frequently. When Jacob finds himself face to face with Savannah, he realizes that she doesn't quite fit into one of the high school stereotypes.
In fact, they're both harboring rather big secrets. Maintaining a friendship or any kind of relationship can be akin to balancing on the thinnest of tight ropes. When the rope is made of lies, revenge, and half truths, well, it's only a matter of time before everything and everyone comes crashing down.
I have received this book as part of a book tour in exchange of an honest review.
I really enjoyed Holding on and Letting Go so I was excited for Living in the Aftermath and the book did not disappoint me.
Savannah used to have it all until an accident changed her whole life and forced her to adapt and change. She has her secrets and, apparently so does Jacob and they will both have to learn how to cope and maintain friendships and other relationships.
Emerson is present in the story and I still like it but this is Savannah’s story. The friendship between the two of them grows and I enjoyed reading about it.
New characters are introduced to the story as well.  Jacob is one of them and he comes across as being quite sweet. He’s a good addition to the story.
The characters in this book, just like in the last one, are very well-written, well-developed and interesting.
Living in the Aftermath is very well-written and captivating. The story develops nicely and is well-paced. The book is easy to read and very interesting.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series now!

Rating:  Worth Your Time (4 Stars)

About the Author:

I'm not really going to write a biography. Though I am supportive of the high schools and colleges I have attended, it's probably not actually the most interesting stuff about me. I'm going to do a list of five really random things instead for now.

1) I like making lists. It's weird, and I never actually scratch things off of the list.
2) I sing and dance in the car like a maniac.
3) For the first six years of my life, I truly believed a shark lived under my bed. I watched Jaws at too young of an age.
4) Without a doubt, I am a night person. I am enormously grumpy when first woken up in the morning.
5) When I was younger, I read almost every Nancy Drew book, both new and old. I had a notebook, and I would take notes to see if I could figure out who the "bad guy" was before Nancy did. We probably tied.
