"After I’m Gone," from the Maple Avenue series, takes a haunting look at teen suicide from the perspective of Cari, a young girl who appears to have taken her life due to relentless bullying from her peers and abuse from her parents. As Cari observes life from the other side, she meets Christine, an older more rebellious spirit, who reluctantly acts as her guide and confidante. Together they observe Michael, an artist friend of Cari’s, who has also been the victim of bullying and abusive parents. As a desperate Michael begins to contemplate suicide, a helpless Cari is suddenly forced to revisit her own nightmares... and find a way home.
