A poignant, thoughtful and witty YA debut about a teen girl trying to piece her life back together after the unthinkable happens on a school ski trip.
Like Sid, Colleen Clayton grew up in a small, suburban town just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from Kent State University, she worked as a social worker for fifteen years, as well as in residential treatment centers for troubled teens and as Program Supervisor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. She currently lives Ohio with her family and recently received her MFA from the Northeast Ohio Consortium at Youngstown State University. What Happens Next is her debut novel.
"Sad, funny, and true, this book hits all the right notes"--Miranda Kenneally, author of Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker "I haven't been this in love with a set of characters in maybe forever...This book is for every girl who thinks she's got everything under control, for every girl who thinks rape can't happen to her, and for every girl who thinks she knows how she would respond to the worst. May we all have a bit of Sid in us -- smart, strong, spunky, and ultimately aware that we can't do it all on our own."--Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List, Bitter End, and Perfect Escape "Real teenagers. Real issues. Real writing...Heartbreaking, but still filled with hope and promise, author Colleen Clayton knows that the past can't be rewritten, but you can ruin the future by not learning from it."--Holly Goldberg Sloan, author of I'll Be There "Colleen Clayton's characters stuck with me long after I finished reading this great debut novel."--Lucy Christopher, Printz Honor Winning author of Stolen "Girls will see themselves or someone they know in this thought-provoking story as it gets passed from friend to friend."--SLJ "Debut author Clayton doesn't simplify Sid or her emotions... painfully realistic yet hopeful."--PW * "Equal parts endearing spunk and heartbreaking vulnerability, Sid Murphy is a character who feels more like family by story's end. The story-and even more importantly, Sid herself-will stay with readers long after the final page is turned. Kudos to Clayton for crafting a powerful, moving debut."--Kirkus (starred review)
