About this item

The summer before his senior year, Jude (yes, he’s named after the Beatles song) gets his first job, falls in love for the first time, and starts to break away from his parents. Jude’s house is kept dark, and no one talks much—it’s been that way since his little sister drowned in a swimming pool seven years ago when Jude was supposed to be watching her.

Now, Jude is finally, finally starting to live. Really live. And then, life spins out of control. Again.

Acclaimed author James Preller explores life, death, love, faith, and resilience in his first young adult novel. Before You Go will grip readers from the book’s dramatic first few pages to its emotional end.

Unable to recover from the guilt of his younger sister's drowning death when he was supposed to be watching her, Jude endures a bleak and silent existence the summer before his senior year before finding the strength to move on, a progression that is challenged when his life suddenly spins out of control. A first young adult novel by the author of Bystander.
