Review: I definitely enjoyed reading After the Moment. I thought that the relationship between Maia and Leigh was cute how it slowly started and progressed. Garret touched on so many problems that go one in people's every day life. Eating disorders, self-mutilation, sex, rape. There was everything in this book. I myself have dealt with many of these different issues, self-mutilation being the biggest, so I always enjoy reading about how others have gotten over such things. The biggest thing in this book was how Leigh wanted to do anything to protect Maia. I loved that. After the Moment is a really amazing book. It's definitely worth reading.
