Wick acts as guardian of their new relationship, but standing in Will's way is his mother, who is adamant that he's courting disaster and risking that Aisha will hear every private thought he's ever had, and on the sideline is Aisha's seventeen year old son, Jimmy, who has a monumental secret of his own that takes them to the When of Will's natural life-and nothing prepares Will for how deeply he identifies with Aisha's son, and how closely entwined their childhood nightmares are.
"Wick After Dark is a delightful mix of sentiment and laugh-out-loud funny. Max Thompson takes a risk with this one, and it pays off wonderfully." ~Ian Murphy, Murphy's World
"This is not your children's Wick! You're going to laugh and you're going to cry, and in the end, you're going to want to buy poor Wick a new rug." ~ T.L. Crow, editor
"Max Thompson has gone where no cat has gone before-into grown-up territory, laced with big issues that he tackles with humor and grace. This is the book adult Wick fans have been asking for, and Max definitely delivers." ~ Jo Schotz, I Eight What?
