Mar 06, Savannah Books With Bite rated it it was amazing. This and other reviews and other fun stuff over on my blog Messyhousehappylife She has stomach problems, but not really. I however, had a hard time getting over what Devon did and lack of connection with the baby. Now, I will grant that the whole thing is written in the present-tense, which is very difficult to do.

This author did her job. Jadi mau bagaimana lagi?? Ada sedikit unsur psikologis dan hukumnya, bikin susah berhenti bacanya hehehe. Will she be considered in trial as an adult or Juvienile? How many times to I need to read about blood in the underwear, milk squirting out all over the place, or “pulsating umbilical cord”s?


This book made me sad, so sad. Do absolutely not get me wrong: She’s my age and has a life I can empathize with, whether it be because I know what school is like in that way or because I have friends who’ve experienced homes and families like hers. I waited the entire book for something of substance to happened and then it fizzed at the end.

I’d recommend After to anyone looking for a book that will make them think truly and deeply over a subject that is usually very difficult to contemplate rationally. There’s a very fine line between upsetting and unsatisfying. Buy the Audiobook Download: Tapi selama aku membaca ceritanya, aku semakin sfaw dan malah bertanya-tanya Apakah benar yang dilakukannya itu adalah suatu tindakan kejahatan? About After Who could do such a thing?

I highly recommend this book to YA fans, teachers, teens, and librarians.

The chapters are pretty small Estimated about …more Im pretty sure there is about pages, its been a few weeks since I’ve personally read the book. Amy Efaw has a way of turning your previous thoughts and reactions to a situation completely upside down. After That Morning, there’s only one way to define Devon: He asks the mom if she’d heard anything or knew of anyone who’d been pregnant lately.

I was so sure this book was going to be bad.

After by Amy Efaw

But all that changes when the police find Devon home sick from school as they investigate the case of an abandoned baby. It was gripping, sad, honest and very well-written. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Especially when efas arrived in juvenile detention, she was so judgmental especially when it came to other girls.



Efaw takes the reader on Devon? This book taught me a lot of things about the way people work. Like Monster, it gives you a punch in the gut look into the mind of someone so many people would judge efww walking a single step in his or her shoes After she gave birth, Devon kept pushing people away probably due to PTSD which she may agter had even before becoming pregnant due to her childhood.

Not sexually active, just a 1x thing and she was so disgusted she’d be like her mother that she denied being pregnant?

She’s the main character. This author made me root for a girl who dumped her baby in a trash bag and feel empathy toward her. Dia merasa apa yang sudah dilakukannya itu amatlah sfaw Who the hell cares about his or her despicable mother?
