This story is so powerful

If you’re after a read that will have you tearing up quicker than One Direction’s hiatus did, then boy do we have a book for you. Seriously guys, this story is powerful – so powerful that it might just be our favourite read of the year.

By now, you guys have probably heard about ‘After The Fire’ by Will Hill. We’ve been fangirling about it a lot recently and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you need to do so ASAP.

The story follows one of the most compelling YA characters ever, Moonbeam. She’s grown up in a fenced off community that’s run by a corrupted leader called Father John and has had a chilling childhood.

Intrigued yet? You should be. ‘After The Fire’ is as gripping as it sounds. It’s based on a real-life cult and there are plenty of moments in the book where you’ll be thrown on an emotional roller-coaster.

So buckle up because we’re going to let you have a sneak peek of them. Below are just a few of the most emotional quotes from ‘After The Fire’. If you stick around long enough, you can also win a signed copy of ‘After The Fire’, HUGE bundle of books and a National Rail Young Person’s Railcard!

Ever wondered where the idea for ’13 Reasons Why’ originally came from?! The real-life situation that inspired it is heartbreaking

This MP! writer has NEVER read the ‘Harry Potter’ books and you’ll cry with pride over what she NOW thinks of them
