51 Autumn 2017 Before and After Clea Time travel!
There’s something incredibly thrilling about it. And in his debut for young readers Jesper Danielsson tackles his science fiction plot with skill. The thriller Before and After Clea holds you in its grip right from the start and keeps the tension going all the way through to the end. Jonte, Axel and Jimi are off school for the summer. Everything’s pretty relaxed. That’s until Clea from the future shows up at the abandoned house, and they’re all drawn into a tangle that quickly turns out to be less than peaceful. This is a clever thriller with a fast-paced tempo, elevated by its believable depictions of the relationships between the children and their parents.
