Namun suatu pagi, semuanya berubah. Cassandra there’s another book by her, but not the series. May 29, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: The mom is so ridiculous. There were just a few relatively important things that bothered me a little: Coba kita lihat pada kehidupan Devon. Overall, I thought this story was unique and definitely different from most young adult novels.
I’m not sure if I’m exactly comfortable with the fact that Amy Efaw manipulated my emotions like Play-Doh, but I guess that is testament to her skill as a writer. I am so angry that a girl who’s gone through so much pain, physically and emotionally, who is obviously in need of psychiatric counseling and perhaps a foster family who will be there for her, casts all of that aside to teach us a tidy little lesson about What We Ladies Owe To Our Babies.
The novel is a page turner out of the sad headlines of our time. I feel bad now. I thought well this should be interesting. View all 8 comments. That is unlike anything I have ever read.
Too much for my taste, in fact. It’s a scary, strange, fascinating topic, and Efaw handles it with spare grace.
This is painfully real. It’s about giving birth and being a mom to a baby no matter how you feel about that pregnancy.
It dealt with such a difficult subject and took such a challenging approach that I just couldn’t help but expect it to fail. The writing style is enjoyable, I loved the flashbacks that were involved that’s what kept me entertained. Her development throughout is powerful and believable.
I’m sure this happens, but for me it is not something I can truly grasp. Setelah hari itu dan setelah mendapat pengobatan, Devon dimasukkan ke penjara. The author missed a big potential opportunity in devoting more time and thought to Devon’s sessions with the psychiatrist. I don’t consider this a “omg I can’t put down” book but I was intrigued by it and wanted to see what would happen.
Im definetly going to be judgemental on the contents of this book, like the author said at the end how she can’t fathom what desperation would lead a woman to throw away her baby? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

It’s not about being a good, loving parent that’s important, noooo. SO now Devon was arrested for throwing the infant away. The courtroom stuff is WAY overdone.
Mar 06, Savannah Books With Bite rated it it was amazing. An infant left in the trash to die. Efaw, I am horrified at this lesson. But it was also this afetr of lack of responsibility.
Dec 02, Pages Young Adult. It is a tough read, but one that will resonate.

It read like an episode of Law and Order: They end up doing efad nasty, which is Devon’s first and only time, then she decides she will never amyy to him again. View all 6 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
