9780615669465: After Isaac

Aaron Saturn, 14, is an emotional zombie--stuck in grief for his little brother, Isaac, who died. Aaron longs for an escape, and thinks he's found one when he meets Kim, a girl living on the streets of New York City's East Village. But the real upheaval in his life hits closer to home. When his parents reveal a startling plan to change their family, Aaron goes into a tailspin. He needs to learn that running away won't heal him. For that to happen, Aaron must be willing to let love back into his life. Love that will lead him all the way to China. After Isaac touches on the issues of grief in young adults, sibling loss, homeless youth and China's one child policy.

About the Author:

Avra Wing is the author of the novel Angie, I Says, which was made into the movie Angie starring Geena Davis and James Gandolfini. She is also a poet: her poetry collection, Recurring Dream, won the 2011 Pecan Grove Press Chapbook Competition, and she's published poems in numerous literary magazines. Her essays have appeared in The New York Times. Avra's work teaching creative writing for the New York Writers Coalition was recognized with a grant from Poets and Writers. She also taught for 10 years as an adjunct professor of English at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, New York. She lives in Brooklyn, where she and her husband raised three (wonderful) children.

Review:

**After Isaac is a finalist for Foreword Reviews Book of the Year in young adult fiction**

**After Isaac is an IndieBRAG Medallion honoree**

**After Isaac is a 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Award Gold Medal Winner for Young Adult Fiction**

"A year after the death of his younger brother, Isaac, 14-year-old Aaron . . .  is slowly adjusting to life without [him], but the announcement that his parents plan to adopt a baby from China sends him into a tailspin. A chance meeting with Kim, a homeless teenager, offers Aaron a chance to reach out, but his attempts may not turn out as planned when Kim opens his eyes to a darker side of life. Wing (Angie, I Says) delivers an emotionally complex story of life, love, grief, and recovery as Aaron gradually accepts the changes in his family. The author also skillfully tackles topics of foreign adoptions and racism. Ages 12-up."--Publishers Weekly 

"Avra Wing deftly capures the voice of her teenaged narrator, and explores the topics of friendship, family stability, and grief, alongside adoption and racism"--Adoptive Families, Favorite Reads of 2013

"Wing earned critical acclaim with her first novel, Angie, I Says, which was made into the movie Angie starring James Gandolfini.  In After Isaac, she again wins the hearts of  readers. After Isaac tells the story of Aaron Saturn, a 16-year-old who is stifled by his grief over the death of his younger brother, Isaac. Wing captures Aaron's heartbreak with an astute delicacy."--Brooklyn Daily Eagle

"Avra Wing is a remarkably astute writer. In After Isaac she handles the weightiest material--life and death, birth and loss--with the lightest of touches. Aaron Saturn and his lovely, heartbroken family will stay with you long after this novel's pitch-perfect ending."--Ben Dolnick, author of  At the Bottom of Everything
