Product description


ALA's Best Fiction for Young Adults List
A Bustle American Woman Book Club Pick
A PopSugar Best Book of the Summer
A Refinery29 Best Read of June

"This sharp, complex narrative is a coming-of-age novel that will feel especially resonant for women in the lens of 2017."

"Sensitive, big hearted, engrossing...packs a big emotional punch."
--Publishers Weekly

"An incredibly honest and empathetic debut."
--ALA Booklist

"A new voice in contemporary fiction introduces a cast of characters and a story line that will stick with readers long after they are done. Purchase where contemporary YA fiction authors like Rainbow Rowell and John Green are popular."
--School Library Journal

"Important subject matter, fierce writing. Pipkin stole my heart with this book."
--A.S. King, Printz Honor-winning author of Still Life with Tornado

"With Aftercare Instructions, Bonnie Pipkin offers a mighty, innovative, and (often painfully) real debut. Its construction--the present day in prose, the backstory in screenplay--amps up the ticking clock, making it nearly impossible to put down. Readers may experience joy, heartache, and everything in between."
--David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Kids of Appetite and Mosquitoland

"Aftercare Instructions is an illuminating, beautiful portrait of a brave and troubled girl with a brave, brave heart. Moving, authentic, timely."
--Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

"A raw, riveting story of love and family and the strength to stay standing when both begin to crumble. Bonnie Pipkin never flinches, and the result is a novel as powerful as it is essential."
--Robin Wasserman, critically acclaimed author of Girls on Fire

"Bonnie Pipkin presents more than a novel, but a confident and exciting writing career."
--New York Times bestselling and three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Rita Williams-Garcia

"With quiet, subtle power, Bonnie Pipkin does not shy away from portraying the harsh realities of what can happen in the aftermath of a hard decision. Aftercare Instructions is a heart wrenching story that will touch and resonate with so many young adult readers."
--Printz Award winner and National Book Award Finalist An Na

"Do I have any criticisms? None."
--Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner Tim Wynne-Jones
