Based on the epic film After Earth, starring Jaden Smith and Will Smith.

One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's flight from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary soldier Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his thirteen-year-old son Kitai (Jaden Smith). While traveling to a nearby planet, an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's ship, and they crash-land on an inhospitable Earth.

As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain in order to recover their rescue beacon, encountering highly evolved creatures and a ruthless alien beast along the way. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.

With black-and-white illustrations throughout, After Earth: Kitai's Journal is filled with action, adventure and emotion, as told by Kitai Raige himself—perfect for younger readers!
