After The End by Clare Mackintosh

After the End

Max and his wife, Pip, are a perfect couple. And added to their perfect lives is Dylan, their son. When Dylan is diagnosed with a brain tumor their lives are forever changed.

Pip spends every minute in the PICU and Max is back to work and struggling with not being with Pip and Dylan. After so many months the news they receive from the latest scan is not good. They have a decision to make and if they can’t make one, the NHS will.

This first half of the book was heartbreaking and I can’t imagine having to make a life or death decision for your toddler. What would you do? Do you let go? Do you fight, knowing you will lose?

The second half I was confused. It wasn’t clear to me that this was a What if? story. What if the judge says no? What if they judge says yes? I was confused right up until the end. That is when I figured out that each of them was telling the story of what their own outcome would be. But I really wanted to know which one happened.
