    Having read the other titles in the trilogy I think Sweet Hereafter is a deft closing This final installment is about Sweet a young girl we meet through Marley in Heaven Sweet is odd; she wears knee high rain boots isn’t obsessed with ipods or Facebook drives a truck dubbed Alice and likes feeding ground hogs apple peels She doesn’t fit in with her perfect beautiful family In this closing book it’s a few years later and Sweet a senior is still odd but popular When her relationship with her family reaches her breaking point she moves in with Curtis another uiet but friendly young man enlisted in the Reserves home after one tour in Ira Their connection is both tender and tenuous The story unfolds slowly The commentary is sparse and even the most dramatic scenes are subdued This is however a poignant read Johnson renders a short but memorable story about how we find meaning and make connections in the lives we lead There’s no happy ending but there is resolution I think there is some peace To paraphrase one of the characters there is enough We don’t get a lot of time with the characters we don’t get lengthy histories or long passages of dialogue but we do get enough We get a mother connecting with a daughter in a way I think the daughter understands We get a young girl and young man loving for a time We see friends doing what they can We get enoughIn a culture where communication is a juxtaposition of multi tasking and texting I think this kind of brevity matches teens' modern sensibility without compromising the art This is life distilled in a meaningful way The length of the book works This book is small but powerful Yes it is a good for a reluctant reader and a broader audience as well My experience is that most teens want everything from food to entertainment to get to the point and get there fast No we don’t get 400 pages of pining or violence It’s not an epic tale of adventure It is what I think the author intended an intimate close to a series that has looked at relationships the way they really happen For me the read is seamless; elegant in sparse prose lines that feel like poetry The depth of the work is understated but potent

    Sweet Hereafter is about A high schooler named Shoogy who lives in a small town called Heaven She lives with her parents and brothers She is unhappy because she thinks they do not understand her She couldn't talk to them and didn't find any reason to stay there Curtis who is another main character is an Ira veteran He allows Shoogy to move in with him and she feels she can trust and depend on him He is a lot like her because he likes to be alone and likes the uiet in the woods She left home to move in with Curtis in a shack in the woods Curtis loved the woods and the shack He felt he had lost this kind of life because of his experience in Ira After she left home no one came to look for her This made her feel very bad but it proved to her that they didn't care about her Life with Curtis was good Shoogy went to school and work Curtis was very uiet but they understood each other and got along Sometimes the uiet bothered her but Curtis had a lot of books and she would read Curtis did not talk much but he did tell her he would probably have to go back to Ira He used to have nightmares about what happened in Ira They never discussed the nightmares but she knew it bothered him He did tell her that he would probably have to go back to Ira but did not want to He eventually went AWOL because he could not bring himself to go back The internal conflict Shoogy had was whether she should go back home or not There were times when she would drive past her home but not stop She missed her family but had mixed feelings about going back One day she received a letter from her mother that shocked her The mother said how much she missed her and did not want her to leave The mother said she knew she could not continue to hold on to her She admitted that she never really never let go She knew where she lived that she was in school and working She would watched her from a distance She told her she loved her and that her father said she should make her come home Her mother felt she could not do that because Shoogy felt she had to leave She wanted her to know that she loved her and she would always be in her heart This letter made Shoogy feel very unsure about her decision to leave home She didn't know how her family really felt about her This letter caused an internal conflict for her One day when she came home Curtis was gone She looked for him in the woods but couldn't find him When she couldn't find him she realized that he was not coming back She felt very bad but realized that Curtis had given her a safe place but that he no longer felt safe She then understood that you could be gone in an instant and that the only thing left were memories of what that person meant to you The text to world connection in this story is that today that when some soldiers come back from the Army they have difficulty adjusting Because of what they have experienced in the war some will volunteer to help others who are feeling like Shoogy They give them advice about how to handle certain situations so their lives can be better However for some of them they have not learned how to handle their own problems His way of life had been destroyed and he could not bring himself to go back to Ira I rated this book a three because I don't understand why she left her safe haven home to go to the unknown

    Honestly until I read the last third of this book I hated it The writing style is very amorphous and jumps time a lot so it's difficult to figure out if you're reading about something happening now or that happened in the past There's also a lot of characters thrown around that don't play any significant role and I started confusing who was who And the main character who I thought was named Sweet but is named in the inside cover Shoogy is not very sympathetic She insinuates that she has this terrible life but it was mostly her own choices that led her to this pointHowever about two thirds into the book it changes The timeline becomes linear so I was able to figure out what was happening and the plot finally becomes clear the plot described on the inside cover flap that I'd been waiting for the entire book The emotions are real and tangible and readers finally start to connect to Sweet and her situation I hated the ending though I thought that it could have been handled differently so it didn't create such a flop of a resolutionWarnings on a scale of 1 5 Language 3 This book is written in first person and Sweet the narrator uses a good amount of language for no real reason

    Summary Shoogie moves out of her family home and into a cabin in the woods with a former soldier They share a sweet but tenuous connection until tragedy intervenesVerdict Confusion Yay The book is short and easy to read which makes it great for reluctant or slow readers but also deep which gives it broader appeal Dreamy prose and a pared down plot let Shoogie's emotion float to the surface Johnson's writing shinesNay I haven't read all three books in the Heaven trilogy Apparently Shoogie is the friend of an earlier heroine and if you haven't read that book you've missed a lot of her backstory I felt a little confused I understood that she left home because she felt out of place but that part of her story wasn't developed much here I never felt connected to either of the main characters perhaps because their relationship was so new and neither felt chattyShameless plugging of a favorite Have you read The First Part Last? It's terrific

    Shoogy has left her parent's cold and constricting home to live with Curtis The two find kindred spirits in each other While Shoogy deals with the baggage her parents have given her Curtis copes with life after being in Ira I wasn't as connected to this book as I was to the others in the series I felt that could have been developed and added to story I found myself confused by parts of the story because Shoogy seemed to be an unreliable narratorthough really she wasn't The words were beautiful and there was potential to this story but it didn't knock it out of the park like the others for me

  8. says:

    Had to read this for some work and it just wasn't my style Too short and abstract which left the characters feeling flat Maybe it didn't help that I haven't read the first two books in the trilogyI get what Johnson was trying to do and I appreciate this as a story about the aftermath of war But none of the characters were memorable to me and Sweet's whole story revolved around Curtis so I don't feel she really made a good protagonist25 stars

    It’s interesting that this book reportedly took the author years to write because it actually gave off the opposite vibe for me It seemed kind of rushed It was almost like a stream of consciousness single sitting writing assignment There were definitely parts of the book that I liked but it went off the rails and became overly dramaticunbelievable in the end
