Pertama kali aku tertarik dengan buku ini adalah karena cover versi aslinya. What she did was something vy people would never even put as a far-off option.
After by Amy Efaw | : Books
That is unlike In October I was in the worst reading slump ever so I decided to get away from all ARCs and read something that would regain my interest in writing so I started browsing the library ebook selection and came across After.
A book about a girl who hid her pregnancy and than threw out her baby? There is no real depth. Some sentences don’t even make sense. It really made the story realistic. Dia merasa yb itu bukan dirinya. And yet gifted author Amy Efaw does the impossible.
It’s about this girl, Devon, who dumps her baby in the trash. Devon herself, smart and hardworking, who pretty much raised herself and is driven to be nothing like her mother.
Rfaw di sini, kita kerap menonton berita tentang kasus bayi yg ditemukan di tong sampah. Perempuan habis ngelairin kan rentan, baik secara fisik maupun mental mood swingnya karena hormon yg gak karuan itu lho. She’s the main character.
But then it didn’t. Charged with attempted murder, Devon enters the juvenile court system while her attorney fights to keep her client from being prosecuted as an adult. Sep 01, Hannah rated it it was ok. Seperti yang kita sudah tahu dengan jelas. After is the type of novel that will stick with me for a agter time. This author made me root for a girl who dumped her baby in a trash bag and feel empathy toward her.
After reminded me very much of the episode of Cold Case titled ‘Family’ – same sort of plot and character types. Devon at first represses everything that happened then slowly begins to deal with the choices she made and the consequences of her actions as she meets with her lawyer and adjusts to life in the juvenile detention center.

Sosok gadis remaja yang sedang bersandar di cermin dan dalam pantulannya dia berperut buncit. It is a tough read, but one that will resonate. The courtroom stuff is WAY overdone. Will I have anything for a proper review now?
A few minutes later, a police officer comes knocking on the door with his partner, because they’re canvassing the place.
Oct 01, Karen rated it liked it. And in the heat of the moment, they have unprotected sex. I’d love to read a thoughtful, feminist exploration of a girl in denial of her sexuality, her pregnancy, her labor and childbirth.
What else could it have been but a cold? She refers to the baby as IT a tactic that grows a little old throughout the eefaw of the novel and aftsr to know when she can go home. The reader witnesses Devon’s story unfold piece by piece, almost as if we are understanding what transpired at the same time Devon does.
Sh Im definetly going to be judgemental on the contents of this book, like the author aftre at the end how she can’t fathom what desperation would lead a woman to throw away her baby? There any no connection or lazy connection that would justify the main character’s decision. The strange thing is that it Harrowing. My major problem with this book is that Devon spent most of it in denial.
