Review: After

After by Amy Efaw

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was not a fun book. Dark, dismal, depressing, profoundly sad. Yet it was a great book. A sad, sad story of a young girl and her struggle with an unplanned pregnancy and what she did. Even though what she did is horrible, she is not an unsympathetic character. Very well written, compelling, hard to put down, and yet so very disturbing at the same time.

This is a book young people should read.

  1. I've almost bought this SOOOOOOOOO many times...

    1. You should. Not a comfortable or fun book, but an important and thought-provoking work. My 15 year old daughter recommended it to me. We had a long discussion about it after I was done. Really this is a tragic, but important book.
