Praise for Amil and The After
Amazon’s Best Book of the Month (January 2024)

“…a masterpiece of nuance, vulnerability, and emotional complexity. A quietly brilliant, deeply insightful story of living in uncertain times.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Searingly emotional… the fast-paced, multifaceted plot will keep readers engaged while bringing them to a satisfying resolution.Booklist, starred review

★ “A tender companion to [Hiranandani’s] 2019 Newbery Honor-winning The Night Diary… compelling.” – Shelf Awareness, starred review 

“Veera Hiranandani masterfully presents a powerful, unvarnished examination of difficult subject matter while paving the way forward with hope and love.” – BookPage, starred review 

★ “Hiranandani effortlessly incorporates the tastes, sights, sounds, and history of India in engaging prose…Accessible and engrossing, readers unfamiliar with the historic partition of India and Pakistan will nevertheless readily relate to a boy’s yearning for stability in tumultuous times. A first purchase for all middle grade collections.” – School Library Journal, starred review

Masterly… a book about hope, about a boy and his father, both hurt and vulnerable, navigating their traumas and finally surviving — apart and then together.”New York Times Book Review

Fans of the previous title will appreciate this compassionate and thoughtful continuation of the family’s story, while new readers can experience Amil’s account of hope and survivor guilt as a standalone volume. “ — The Horn Book Magazine
