Mar 02, Sheena rated it really liked it. The author spends a great deal of time establishing Devon’s denial. I would give this book 3. And this author treated her subject brilliantly. She can’t admit to herself that she’s pregnant and throws the baby into a trash can. This was an extremely hard book amyy listen to.

Dan segera setelah melihat keadaan Devon yang juga berlumuran darah, Devon Sky Davenport, 15 tahun adalah siswi teladan dan bintang sepak bola berbakat. Anyways, I would suggest this book for nice relaxful days or an airplane trip or whatever.

This was a fantastic book. Devon eventually does win the right to be tried in the juvenile system, and the legal proceedings leading up to that decision are really detailed and interesting. She’s the main character. I breezed through the book in like three days easy. Masih mau cuek sama orang sekitar?? Sadly, the novel never gets there, and I found the ending especially horrible. Namun suatu pagi, semuanya berubah. After the tragic discovery of a newborn infant ammy the trash, 15 year old Devon recalls what happened.


Yes, she went through something traumatic, but doesn’t she want to help herself?

After by Amy Efaw by Natalie Jovel on Prezi

She’s a truly amazing girl and I believe that Amy Efaw must be an absolutely splendid person to have caught both sides of this tragic story so eloquently.

She never once considers that the other girls may be in the same situation as herself. It told me that no matter how well you think you know someone, there’s always something new.

It taught me that panic is fear and vice versa. Her works include After and Battle Dress.

It was gripping, sad, honest and very well-written. Oct 20, Angie rated it really liked it. Hardcoverpages. I highly wfaw this book to YA fans, teachers, teens, and librarians.

What else could it have been but a cold? It’s like the author got tired of writing, so with no forethought she suddenly launched into a swell of good and redemptive emotions, ending with the clincher, “She’d won.

Aug 11, Pages Young Adult. As a big fan of YA lit, I was intrigued by the premise of this novel and then horribly arter in the execution.


I was so sure this book was going to be bad. D Memaafkan orang lain itu perlu. Then she yanks the big, bulky blanket Devon was under, and they all see all this blood around her legs and lower stomach. Pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang Devon tidak tahu jawabannya.


Sh Im definetly going to be judgemental on the contents of this book, like the author said at the end how she can’t fathom what desperation would lead a woman to throw away her baby? And I could not put this down. The baby was found alive and Devon was found, barely conscious, bleeding on her living room couch by the police investigating the crime. It dealt with such a difficult subject and took such a challenging approach that I just couldn’t help but expect it to fail. We saw Devon experience with the birth, arrest, and jail time.

Lists with This Book. She rarely lets herself loose, which means people don’t know who she really is – including the reader. He asks the mom if she’d heard anything or knew of anyone who’d been pregnant lately. I don’t consider this a “omg I can’t put down” book but I was intrigued by it and wanted to see what would happen. There were just a few relatively important things that bothered me a little: I find that nearly impossible.
