This ongoing trilogy tells the story of Tessa Young, an optimistic freshman at Washington State University, and the dark, troubled guy who has stolen her heart. After is reading that you can’t get enough of: a story as addictive as TV with new chapters added every few days. It is mobile: you read it on your phone and receive notifications for every new chapter. It is also social, with fans commenting on the story and messaging the writer directly as the story is being written. Only on Wattpad.

About the Writer

The mastermind behind the After series is Anna Todd, a first-time writer who uses Wattpad to talk straight to her fans about After and get direct feedback about the trilogy. She also expands the After story world beyond Wattpad, using Instagram and Twitter to share photos, videos, songs, and art created by readers. When not writing on Wattpad, Anna loves to read, often finishing two to three books a week. Her favorite books include 50 Shades of Grey and Beautiful Bastard. Anna is married and lives in Central Texas.
