Publisher's Summary

Before that morning, these were the words most often used to describe straight-A student and star soccer player Devon Davenport: responsible, hard working, 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, Amy Efaw takes the reader on Devon's unforgettable journey toward clarity, acceptance, and redemption.

Well done!

This story was extremely interesting and heartbreaking. The narration was very well done, too. Wish it was a little longer. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry.

Waste of Time and Money

I don't know what made me buy this book in the first place- but I'm sorry I did. The main character is whiny and unrelatable and the writing is choppy at best. The writer just focused on the wrong part of the story; I know the book is called "After" but I think it would have been semi-readable if she'd given us a better idea of what came "Before". I get the sense that I'm supposed to like the main character but everything the writer tells us about her is absolutely unlikeable. I think the author's editors did her a disservice- this story had potential but it flopped.

Better luck next time!
