After Eli

author: Rebecca Rupp

When Daniel’s brother Eli is killed at war, Daniel considers the history of unusual fatalities to determine what makes a death — or a life — matter. Danny creates a Book of the Dead — an old binder that he fills with details about dead people, how they died, and, most important, for what purpose. Eventually Daniel is prompted to look up from his notebook of death and questions to make new friends and be swept into the moments that start life rolling again.

“Nostalgic . . . interestingly quirky. . . . A tribute to those left behind.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
