After Thursday is written in a very readable style, using a great deal of conversation. Because Ure is British and the setting is near London, she employs patterns of speech and vocabulary familiar to the British: "the odd bit of noise," "get besotted about," "drop-handled bicycle," "There's a nice lot of room."

Ure deftly moves the reader from Marianne's crush on Abe at the ending of See You Thursday and develops a growing friendship between Marianne and Abe in After Thursday, creating a story that stands on its own merits.

Her portrayal of Marianne and Abe and their growing friendship is honest and will interest young adult readers.
