A deeply researched book that is brutally honest and so tragic that at times it hurts to read. Beautifully written.

A gripping tale of triumph and tragedy, After the Flames will make you shudder, cry, laugh and marvel at the human will to survive. Probing behind the headlines, Rose delivers a touching story of a boy who never wanted to be a hero but had to live under the glare of the media spotlight. Poignant and powerful.
