What is After We Collide about?

After is just the first in a series of novels from Anna Todd. Chronologically, a film based on the second book, After We Collide, will be the next adventure.

Per the book's Amazon synopsis:

Tessa has everything to lose. Hardin has nothing to lose.... except her. After We Collided... Life will never be the same.

After a tumultuous beginning to their relationship, Tessa and Hardin were on the path to making things work. Tessa knew Hardin could be cruel, but when a bombshell revelation is dropped about the origins of their relationship - and Hardin's mysterious past - Tessa is beside herself. Hardin will always be... Hardin. But is he really the deep, thoughtful guy Tessa fell madly in love with despite his angry exterior - or has he been a stranger all along? She wishes she could walk away. It's just not that easy.

Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life. He's not going down without a fight. But can he change? Will he change... for love?

Hardin and Tessa will definitely have some hurdles to overcome when they get a second outing.

Which cast members have been confirmed for After We Collided?

Hero Fiennes-Tiffin and Josephine Langford will reprise their roles as Tessa Young and Hardin Scott. Dylan Sprouse joins the cast as Trevor.
