What if the first day of your relationship was the only day you had?
Seventeen-year-old Sara is a seeker. She's always on the lookout for the perfect moment to capture with her ever-present, point-and-shoot camera, especially on her first trip to New York City.
Sam is a finder. He has a knack for finding what other people can't—a first-edition book or the last two tickets to a sold-out Broadway show. In New York, there is always something interesting to find.
When Sam and Sara's paths cross, neither one of them is prepared for what they will find out about each other—and about themselves when they form an unlikely partnership in search of an elusive work of art. They have one day to find the impossible. Fate brought their talents together, but what happens when time runs out? Will love be able to overcome fate? This new novel from award-winning author Lisa Mangum explores what happens after hello.

This book is fun, as well as thought provoking. It is interesting that it all takes place in a 24 hour period, but that definitely helps to delve deep into what is happening in the lives of the characters, and how they work through their relationships. I really enjoyed it, as I have all of Lisa Mangum's books. Well done!
After Hello is a unique kind of story, taking place during one day as Sara and Sam make several connections with interesting people and learn important things about themselves. Lisa's writing is flawless and beautiful. I love the intricate details Lisa gives her characters that make them come to life. This book moves at a slower pace as the reader is invited to walk alongside Sara and Sam and learn their inner secrets. The emotionally charged connections made ring true for the young adult audience and the book's clean and subtle romance is beautifully done.

This is a good read. It's interesting and engaging and somewhat original in that the entire book takes place over a 24 hour period. I enjoyed the book but it wasn't so gripping I couldn't put it down. The plus side of that is it gives you some time to think about what's going on in the book. I'd recommend it to my friends.
