The Heaven Trilogy

Have you ever waited years to finish reading a series?  I’ve been waiting for the final book in the Heaven trilogy ever since 2003 when I finished reading First Part Last.  The wait is over!  Angela Johnson finishes her trilogy with the recent release; Sweet, Hereafter.  Just as with her other books, Johnson invites you into the lives of teens and their families from a small town in Ohio.  The characters are so beautifully written; you want to be a part of their lives and watch them come of age.  Sweet, Hereafter touches on topics of war, identity, family and high school relationships in a quick read that will leave you wanting to read more.  Thank you Angela Johnson for allowing me to be a part of the lives of your friends in Heaven!
