Daniel (Danny) Anderson was not always known as Daniel (E.) Anderson. His real middle name is James. The E stands for Eli, Danny’s brother. Eli decided that during 9/11 he wanted to help. “Stuff like this happens, and you want to do something. You don’t want to be one of those guys who just sits back.” Eli told Danny. Danny may not have understood what Eli was saying at the time considering he was only in fourth grade but, everything was clear to Mr. and Mrs. Anderson. Eli was joining the army. Sure, Eli’s parents were always worried about Eli but, they never thought Eli would not come back. Then, one day the unexpected happens, Eli Anderson is dead.
After Eli by Rebecca Rupp is about how Danny learns to deal with life, After Eli. This book was amazingly well written, and even now after I read it I still find myself reading this book again and again. This book would have me crying and laughing with a simple turn of a page. My favorite part about this book was the characters. Each character had a unique personality and each had something about them that made you care for them as if they were family. Even though I love the characters and the writing the real reason I and many others will fall in love with this book is because of how unique it is. I have seen many other books with the same base but this book had something that kids my age and older will love. This is one of my many favorite books and I would encourage anyone 11 years or older to read this because of language.
