Title: After
Author: Amy Efaw
Pages: 350
Language: Pg13/R 10+ swears, 3 "F's"
Maturity: PG13/R
Recommendation: Optional

Summary: Who could do such a thing? Certainly not someone like Devon Davenport-a straight-A student-athlete with everything going for her. But in a moment of denial, desperation, and sheer panic, she did something that most people couldn't even imagine. And now Devon is being charged with attempted murder. In a skillfully crafted story, Amy Efaw takes readers through the days leading up to-and after-Devon's crime, painting an unexpected picture of a truly empathetic character caught up in an unimaginable situation.

Review: NOT for sensitive or young readers!!! The entire book deals with the details of a "perfect" teenager who dealt with or I guess DIDN't deal with a teen pregnancy. She blocks out everything that happens to her, and the reader finds out what happened when she finally remembers things . . . and the memories are very graphic. I wouldn't recommend these books to kids....but there are girls who could probably benefit from reading the book.
