Kid View: The Ethan I Was Before by Ali Standish
This is an amazing and moving middle grades novel that will change your life forever. And I want to give a great round of applause to the author, Ali Standish.
The Ethan I Was Before is about a boy named Ethan and he is being crushed by the guilt of the “accident” involving his best friend Kasey and a deadly dare, (I don’t want to spoil it). And throughout the novel he has to learn to get over it and move on with his life.
The entire time you are reading the book, it captivates you. Whatever the feeling Ali wants you to feel, it happens immediately. I can remember a lot of times throughout the novel where my emotions were doing cartwheels.
