The Everafter by Amy Huntley
It’s uuntley of a character portrait than anything else. I really enjoyed reading about Madison, and following her paranormal yet romantic story. The book is targeted towards YA, other than sverafter violent scene it is a middle grade book. At first it’s just to experience being alive and seeing her loved ones but then she realizes she can use these moments to unravel the how ans why of her death.

One that answered a very important question: Oct 14, Julie Kagawa rated it it was amazing. This is paranormal, technically, but not in the usual sense.
It’s definitely got its sad moments but there are also moments of joy and in the end you really just hope for the best for Maddy and her loved ones. We watch the progression of the hubtley with her older sister. Sie hat nur die Gewissheit tot zu sein. She goes from toddler to teenager to adolescent, even baby which is kind of creepy to read! This is something all too knowing for me.
This ghost story kind of had me looking over my shoulder as I got the sense that someone was watching. Can’t WAIT for my students to start reading this book. Jun 19, Steph Su rated it liked it Shelves: Refresh and try again. Creepy, but good creepy!!
Huntley’s vision of “Is” reminds me a lot of a story I wrote in high school, though I didn’t think to incorporate lost objects. My grandmother’s ring that she gave to me when I was teenager. Was it Tammy the drug dealer?

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. Feb 28, Jade Faletti rated it it was amazing. The Everafter was packed full of humor, anguish, and surprise. The format is unusual.

I know what you’re thinking when you see that. It’s different than anything I’ve ever evsrafter before, and I’ll never forget it. I just finished it. Sep 19, A. The final scene takes her to the moment of her death, and the ending is climactic and riveting. When she touches one, she’s sucked back to that moment in her life where she lost it.
Ich werde die Autorin aber im Auge behalten und freue mich auf mehr von ihr. Then we follow Maddy and Gabe as they fall in love. Jun 15, Aileen rated it it was amazing. Jul 11, hayden rated it liked it Shelves: This girl, Maddy just died and went to “IS” Its just this random place which is really dark and then theres some shiny bright light in the corner and then shes freaking out, like duh what do you expect, lol, then she sees her stuffs, which she lost and had meaning indirectly in her life and then every-time she touches them, she went to those moments and experience them, again, she finds out how she died and goes to the light thingy in the end and then, the end.
As the novel starts to close, Madison develops into a much mature character, than the 17 year old she was before.
It was a tad too dramatic, and ridiculously sad and needless. It was just so unusual that I had to see how it played out. If you have a short block of time and would like to finish an interesting and thought provoking book, give The EverAfter a whirl. And more importantly who killed her?
Until she does that, she can’t move into the Everafter, a mysterious place that sounded beautiful, where you’re happy and everyone you love is with you.
