But overall it was a great book and a fantastic read. The style was choppy and uncomfortable but I kept reading and got into the flow. Ohh, this book ended I would have much rather read a book xmy Sandra’s perspective that dealt more completely with her clinging, codependent, seemingly Munchausen affected mother.

Ok just her me out, because of that condition that the protagonist is in the book surprisingly it’s pretty good and the tille sort of make sense now with what hyappens in the end. The story was about a girl named Maddie who died, found her self in this place where there are a bunch of objects she lost in life.


It was this concept that got me to read this book. In her new existence she revisits random times in her life everafterr infancy but never past the age of seventeen.


The high school class ring my dad insisted buying for me. Her best friend’s mother? So then what the hell is the point of life and all that?!

Aug 09, Shannon rated it liked it Shelves: In fact, I’d say that Huntley has a knack for writing relationships in general. I loved the fact that her romance with Gabriel still continued even after death. Can’t WAIT for my students to start reading this book.

So the three stars comes from the fact that all that I just said was prompted by this little bundle of words. The book ammy also short and the ay leaves a few loose ends. Death and what comes after is such a huge mystery and this version is almost It was a tad too dramatic, and ridiculously sad and needless.

And the book left me feeling everqfter little I know I did, and I’ll be looking forward to her future works. Sep 04, Alliyah added it.

Distracted by a perceived brightness, Madison happens upon random objects that she understands as past possessions that she once lost. She goes from toddler to teenager to adolescent, even baby which is kind of creepy to read! Like Madison, I have plenty of possessions that I’ve lost over the years and would love to know what happened to them.

Somehow the ending was very anti-climatic for me.

I loved the idea of The Everafter, especially being able to relive moments after dying. One that answered a very important question: It is an emotional subject so how in the world this author just wrote this and I didn’t feel hardly anything for the main character is beyond me. And, I have may ask The novel is based on a girl, Madison, and she is dead.
