A new novel, The Afterwards, from the team that made The Imaginary - A.F. Harrold, Emily Gravett and Bloomsbury Children's Books. Published in hardback in November 2018, and now available in paperback, this novel is a story about friends and how far they will go for one another.

Fact: Ember and Ness are best friends.

There's nothing more to say about it. It is what it is. It is what it will always be. Ember & Ness.

Then Ness dies. It is sudden and unexpected and leaves Ember completely empty. How can this be?

When Ember finds a way into the Afterworld, she determines to bring Ness back. Because that's what friends do, isn't it? They rescue each other. They help. They never give up.

Ember and Ness. that don't change.

A powerful, poignant, darkly comic and deeply moving story about friendship at its most extraordinary.
