The everafter
Amy Huntley
Teen Fiction HUNTLEY

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

The story of Madison Stanton, dead of unknown causes at age 17, showcases debut author Huntley's skill at writing believable scenes of high school life. Floating in an oblivion she refers to as "is," Madison bounces from scene to scene in her life, trying to understand how she died and figure out what "the Universe wants me to understand." She is hampered by the fact that it is only through touching various objects she finds floating with her (her boyfriend's sweatshirt, a baby rattle, a hair clip) that she can connect with her past. The objects are items she lost in life, and she discovers that other spirits are also using the same means to revisit their lives. The premise feels somewhat contrived, and there's a random snapshot quality to the narrative as Madison gets sucked into and wrenched away from moments in her life, which can grow tedious. Nevertheless, Madison is an engaging protagonist, and the author builds a strong sense of tension; much of her story works well as slice-of-life realism. Huntley is an author worth watching. Ages 12-up. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
