After by Amy Efaw

Title: After
Author: Amy Efaw
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Release Date: August 11, 2009
Received: For Review
Rate: 5

Summary: An infant left in the trash to die. A teenage mother who never knew she was pregnant . . . Before That Morning, these were the words most often used to describe straight-A student and star soccer player Devon Davenport: responsible, hardworking, mature. But all that changes when the police find Devon home sick from school as they investigate the case of an abandoned baby. Soon the connection is made - Devon has just given birth; the baby in the trash is hers. After That Morning, there's only one way to define Devon: attempted murderer. And yet gifted author Amy Efaw does the impossible - she turns Devon into an empathetic character, a girl who was in such deep denial that she refused to believe she was pregnant. Through airtight writing and fast-paced, gripping storytelling, Ms. Efaw takes the reader on Devon's unforgettable journey toward clarity, acceptance, and redemption.

Review: There's a dark poem in here I kind of like. But I guess this book it's self is a bit dark. Don't think I could ever do that to a child.. The ending was.... I'm still a bit speechless totally didn't see it coming. I still think she's a bit nuts.
