Get a taste of the fallout of survival in the exclusive book trailer for After the Woods by Kim Savage.
Narrated by Julia, the survivor of a brutal attempted kidnapping, After the Woods explores themes of guilt, trauma, and memory. What is friendship worth when the unthinkable happens – and who can you trust in the aftermath?
Savage’s debut YA novel has already received a starred review in Kirkus. The book trailer for After the Woods, produced by Film-14, sets the stage for this gripping tale – and provides a few scares of its own.
“Statistically speaking,” the trailer ominously begins, “Girls like me don’t come back when guys like Donald Jessup take us.”
About ‘After the Woods’
Julia knows she beat the odds. She escaped the kidnapper who hunted her in the woods for two terrifying nights that she can’t fully remember. Now it’s one year later, and a dead girl turns up in those same woods. The terrible memories resurface, leaving Julia in a stupor at awkward moments – in front of gorgeous Kellan MacDougall, for example.
At least Julia’s not alone. Her best friend, Liv, was in the woods, too. When Julia got caught, Liv ran away. Is Liv’s guilt over leaving Julia the reason she’s starving herself? Is hooking up with Shane Cuthbert, an addict with an explosive temper, Liv’s way of punishing herself for not having Julia’s back? As the devastating truth about Liv becomes clear, Julia realizes the one person she thinks she knows best – Liv – is the person she knows least of all. And that after the woods was just the beginning.
