Sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.

KIT: I don’t know why I decide not to sit with Annie and Violet at lunch. It feels like no one here gets what I’m going through. How could they?  I don’t even understand.
 
DAVID: In the 622 days I’ve attended Mapleview High, Kit Lowell is the first person to sit at my lunch table. I mean, I’ve never once sat with someone until now. “So your dad is dead,” I say to Kit, because this is a fact I’ve recently learned about her. 

When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David.  Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?

Sometimes looking to the past helps you find your future.

Abbi Hope Goldstein is like every other teenager, with a few smallish exceptions: her famous alter ego, Baby Hope, is the subject of internet memes, she has asthma, and sometimes people spontaneously burst into tears when they recognize her. Abbi has lived almost her entire life in the shadow of the terrorist attacks of September 11. On that fateful day, she was captured in what became an iconic photograph: in the picture, Abbi (aka "Baby Hope") wears a birthday crown and grasps a red balloon; just behind her, the South Tower of the World Trade Center is collapsing.

Now, fifteen years later, Abbi is desperate for anonymity and decides to spend the summer before her seventeenth birthday incognito as a counselor at Knights Day Camp two towns away. She's psyched for eight weeks in the company of four-year-olds, none of whom have ever heard of Baby Hope.

Too bad Noah Stern, whose own world was irrevocably shattered on that terrible day, has a similar summer plan. Noah believes his meeting Baby Hope is fate. Abbi is sure it's a disaster. Soon, though, the two team up to ask difficult questions about the history behind the Baby Hope photo. But is either of them ready to hear the answers?
With perfect pitch for the humor and heartbreak of everyday life, Julie Buxbaum has fashioned a heroine who will be instantly recognizable to anyone who has loved and lost and loved again.

When successful twenty-nine-year-old Manhattan attorney Emily Haxby ends her happy relationship just as her boyfriend is on the verge of proposing, she can’t explain to even her closest friends why she did it. Somewhere beneath her sense of fun, her bravado, and her independent exterior, Emily knows that her breakup with Andrew has less to do with him and more to do with...her. “You’re your own worst enemy,” her best friend Jess tells her. “It’s like you get pleasure out of breaking your own heart.”

As the holiday season looms and Emily contemplates whether she made a huge mistake, the rest of her world begins to unravel: she is assigned to a multimillion-dollar lawsuit where she must defend the very values she detests by a boss who can’t keep his hands to himself; her Grandpa Jack, a charming, feisty octogenarian and the person she cares most about in the world, is losing it, while her emotionally distant father has left her to cope with this alone; and underneath it all, fading memories of her deceased mother continue to remind her that love doesn’ t last forever.

How this brave, original young heroine finally decides to take control of her life and face the fears that have long haunted her is the great achievement of Julie Buxbaum’s marvelous first novel. Written with the authority, grace, and wisdom of an author far beyond her years, The Opposite of Love heralds the debut of a remarkable talent in contemporary fiction.
 Arkadaşlığın zorlukları... İhmal edilmiş bir evlilik... Ve edebiyatın kurtarıcı gücü Julie Buxbaum aşk, aile ve kendimizden bile gizlediğimiz sırlarla dolu, bu kusursuz romanını etkileyici bir dille siz sevgili okurlara sunuyor.


Ellie Lernerın en iyi arkadaşı olan Lucy, Notting Hillin arnavut kaldırımlı sokağında, sekiz yaşındaki kızı Sophienin gözleri önünde bıçaklanarak öldürülür. Bu olay üzerine Ellie her şeyini; işini, evliliğini ve Bostondaki hayatını bırakarak Londraya gider. Lucynin kocası Greg, çareyi barlarda aramaya; kızı Sophie ise yaşadıklarını içine atarak konuşmamaya başlar. 

Ellie, Sophieye yardım edebilmek için çocukluğunda okuduğu bir kitaba başvurur: Gizli Bahçe. Romanı okumaya başladıklarında zaman kavramı ortadan kalkar ve Gizli Bahçe, kimi zaman keder, kimi zaman bir mucize yaratarak yaralarına merhem olur. Bir gün, Lucynin en yakın arkadaşından bile sakladığı bir sır ortaya çıkar. Neredeyse ömrü boyunca tanıdığı bir insanın hayatını ilginçliği ile keşfederken, kendi hayatıyla da yüzleşmek zorunda kalan Ellie, her şeyi geride bırakıp Londraya geldiğinde, nereye ait olduğunu sorgulamaya başlayacaktır.

Yakın arkadaşı olan, aşk acısı çeken ya da keşkelerle dolu bir geçmişe sahip herkesin kalbine işleyecek SENDEN SONRA, Julie Buxbaumun ne kadar muhteşem bir yetenek olduğunu kanıtlıyor.


Senden Sonra İçin Ne Dediler?

Buxbaum, dostlarımız hakkında bildiklerimizi ve bilmemeyi dilediğimiz birçok şeyi büyük bir dürüstlük ve incelikle yazıyor. Senden Sonra, kendimize en yakın hissettiğimiz kişileri bir gün kaybedeceğimiz gerçeğini yansıtmaktadır.
Jodi Picoult

Julie Buxbaumun müthiş romanı Senden Sonrayı bir çırpıda okudum. Bu roman, bizim için değerli insanlarla ilgilenmeyi nasıl öğrendiğimizin -ve eğer şanslıysak bu süreçte kendimizle de ilgilenmeyi öğrenmemizin- şaşırtıcı, komik ve duygulu taraflarına değiniyor. Kesinlikle okuyun. Sadece o gün bir işiniz olmadığından emin olun
Laura Dave, The Divorce Part 

Daha ilk sayfadan okuyucunun içine işleyen Senden Sonra, bazen eve dönüş yolunu bulmamız için yolumuzu şaşırmamız gerektiğini anlatan hassas ve sürükleyici bir roman. Hayatına yeniden ve nasıl başlaması gerektiğini merak eden herkes okumalı. 
Allison Winn Scotch, The New York Times

Julie Buxbaumun anlatımı tek kelimeyle mükemmel Buxbuamun edebi kalitesi, Senden Sonra romanını çok başka bir boyuta taşımış. Bu romanı kesinlikle tavsiye ediyorum.
S.Krishna's Books 

Julie Buxbaum yeni kitabı Senden Sonra ile kadın edebiyatındaki yerini kuvvetlendirmiştir. Kalbinize işleyecek ve mümkün olmadığını düşündüğünüz şekillerde size dokunacak karakterler yaratmıştır.
Charlotte's Web of Books 

Kitapta anlatılan duygular inanılmaz. Bütün karakterlere âşık oldum. Hepsi ayrı ayrı kalbime dokundu. Julie harika bir hikâye anlatıcısı. Ellie karakteriyle arasında bağlantı kurabildim. Sayfalar bir çırpıda değişirken kimi zaman güldüm kimi zaman ise gözyaşlarıma engel olamadım. Sanırım birkaç gün etkisinden kurtulamayacağım.

The complexities of a friendship. The unexplored doubts of a marriage. And the redemptive power of literature...Julie Buxbaum, the acclaimed author of The Opposite of Love, delivers a haunting, gloriously written novel about love, family, and the secrets we hide from each other—and ourselves.

It happened on a tree-lined street in Notting Hill to a woman who seemed to have the perfect life. Ellie Lerner’s best friend, Lucy, was murdered in front of her young daughter. And, as best friends do, Ellie dropped everything—her marriage, her job, her life in the Boston suburbs—to travel to London and pick up the pieces of Lucy’s life. While Lucy’s husband, Greg, copes with his grief by retreating into himself, eight-year-old Sophie has simply stopped speaking.

Desperate to help Sophie, Ellie turns to a book that gave her comfort as a child, The Secret Garden. As the two spend hours exploring the novel’s winding passageways, its story of hurt, magic, and healing blooms around them. But so, too, do Lucy’s secrets—some big, some small—secrets Lucy kept hidden, even from her best friend. Over a summer in London, as Ellie peels back the layers of her friend’s life, she’s forced to confront her own as well: the marriage she left behind, the loss she’d hoped to escape. And suddenly Ellie’s carefully constructed existence is spinning out of control in a chain of events that will transform her life—and those around her— forever. A novel that will resonate in the heart of anyone who’s had a best friend, a love lost, or a past full of regrets, After You proves once again the unique and compelling talent of Julie Buxbaum.
