It was not properly built into and it did not resolve anything.

Books by Amy Efaw. She takes IT out. It read like an episode of Law and Order: The reader witnesses Devon’s story unfold piece by piece, almost as if we are understanding what transpired at the same time Devon does. It told me that no matter how well you think you know someone, there’s always something new. Jan 31, Rebecca McNutt rated it really liked it Shelves: Can I plead guilty?

Anyways, I would suggest this book for nice relaxful days or an airplane trip or whatever.

There wasn’t any condescending or overly sympathetic tone in the narrative, no interruption from the author, absolutely nothing–very straightforward.

Devon herself, smart and ay, who pretty much raised herself and is driven to be nothing like her mother. Also, and this is tied up with a forthcoming issue I had, the revelation Devon has about her mom toward the end is really unfair in my opinion.

However, I will say that I actually really enjoyed this book and I found myself feeling really bad for Devon even though what she did was horrible. Yes, she went through something traumatic, but doesn’t she want to help herself?

Clearly, this was a teen in deep need of psychiatric As a eaw fan of YA lit, I was intrigued by the premise of this novel and then horribly disappointed in the execution. Soon the connection is made? The novel is a page turner out of the sad headlines of our time.


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? 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.

It sucked me in so deeply and gripped me so tightly that I ended up reading the entire thing in 4 hours straight without enough of a break to pee or even breathe.

AFTER is definitely an engaging read. Special Victims Unit aftfr at least has theatre actors in guest-starring roles and bizarro plotlines that make me laugh.
