REVIEW: After by Amy Efaw

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.


"I am totally blown away by this book. Amy Efaw made a character that you will love, pity and hate all at the same time. This engaging book that is worth gripping for takes us to a journey of a girl with high ambitions yet made poor choices in life.
Devon is a model student and a star soccer player. Everything is perfect for her not until one morning when a newborn baby was found in the trash - abandoned yet alive. A baby that was connected to be hers but she says it isn't hers - she didn't get pregnant.
Even after a few months of reading this, I could still remember Devon and her journey. You can't help but get attached to her life, her problems, her journey. The emotions that Amy Efaw showed us - from hurt, anger, denial and acceptance. - made Devon and the book a worth remembering one."
