A New York Times bestseller.

'This brilliantly crafted novel portrays the vast spectrum of love and grief with heart-wrenching beauty and candor. A very special book' - JOHN GREEN, author of The Fault in Our Stars

Life, loss, love and art explode in a kaleidoscope of emotions as one girl must learn the truth about her family's past in order to bring peace to the present. For fans of John Green, Jennifer Niven, Jandy Nelson and Nicola Yoon.

Leigh Chen Sanders is sixteen when her mother dies by suicide, leaving only a scribbled note: 'I want you to remember'. Leigh doesn't know what it means, but when a red bird appears with a message, she finds herself travelling to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time.

Leigh is far away from home and far away from Axel, her best friend, who she stupidly kissed on the night her mother died - leaving her with a swell of guilt that she wasn't home, and a heavy heart, thinking she may have destroyed the one good thing left in her life.

Overwhelmed by grief, Leigh retreats into her art and into her memories, where colours collide and the rules of reality are broken. The only thing Leigh is certain about is that she must find out the truth. She must remember.

With lyrical prose and magical elements, Emily X.R. Pan's stunning debut novel alternates between past and present, romance and despair, as one girl attempts to find herself through family history, art, friendship, and love.

Review:

Emily X.R. Pan's brilliantly crafted, harrowing first novel portrays the vast spectrum of love and grief with heart-wrenching beauty and candor. This is a very special book (John Green, bestselling author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN)

Magic and mourning, love and loss, secrets kept and secrets revealed all illuminate Emily X.R. Pan's inventive and heart-wrenching debut (Gayle Forman, author of IF I STAY)

This book mesmerized me from page one. With its lyrical writing and heartbreakingly real protagonist, The Astonishing Colour of After provides a poignant reminder of grief's power and the transcendence of love. Haunting at every turn, this is a glorious debut (Renee Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of THE WRATH AND THE DAWN)

'This beautiful, magical journey into the heart of grief made my heart take flight' (Holly Black, author of THE CRUEL PRINCE)

'This is a beautiful, often lyrical account of remembering and mourning a loved one; a book that will stay with you' (The Irish Times)

'Delicate and thought-provoking way . . . a work of art' (Rachel Meier, Waterstones Bookseller)

This is one of the most emotional YA books I've ever read. From the very first page, I knew it would be special to me. [...] This is unlike any other story and one I would massively recommend for its portrayal of grief. (Read by Jess (blog))
