Reliving only the moments in life you spent looking for lost items is not my idea of Heaven. Yes, you’re reading about her as a ghost, but his is a story about Maddy’s life and how she comes to understand herself and the people around her, with the side note of finding out the mystery of how she died. It was just kind of I don’t quite know what to say about this book.
But this review is supposed to be about The Everafterso moving along to that The book is targeted towards YA, other than one violent scene it is a middle grade book.
Oct 11, Kristy rated it it was ok. Thanks for the great review and recommendation Mrs. To ask other readers questions about The Everafterplease sign up. Mar 23, Ellie Haygood rated it it was amazing.
I was like this: So yeah, this sends my head into an not happy place, and gives me the same fears of “what if there’s nothing, just emptiness and blankness everywhere” that used to grip me as a child lying in bed at night. Like Madison, I have plenty of possessions that I’ve lost over the years and tue love to know what happened to them.
The concept isn’t something I’ve ever read and it’s so intriguing just to think about. amu
There was one juntley I really didn’t like about this book. View all 3 comments. The doctor had to tell me it was time to put the book down and come on back. And of course, there’s the question of what’s waiting in the next stage of the afterlife. All she’s got is these rare moments that she lost something, and though they weren’t important in life, they’re so meaningful in death.
It started off with Madison realizing that she was dead. I thought Maddy was too whinny in the beginning, I didn’t like her that much there was no chemistry between the her and Gabe. In all ,i would give this book a good 4. When she comes huntoey contact with an item it sends her back to the moment in her life when she lost it and she can then relive or watch the scene as it plays out.
To be a book about afterlife without a God te some sort felt a little like “What’s the point?? Then we follow Maddy and Gabe as they fall in love.
A very interesting idea coupled with a more-often-than-not irritating main character filed with OMGProblems and very, very short chapters equals out to a decent romp in teenage any. This book was sad and depressing and it makes me wonder where the author’s head was at when she wrote this.
But this review is supposed to be about The Everafterso moving A friend from PaperBackSwap first recommended this book to me, and I purchased it when it was in the bargain section on Amazon. The final scene takes her to the moment of her death, and the ending is climactic and riveting. This story puts beauty to shame, it makes hte reader appriciate more of life then ever before, and it was definitely a novel no one would be able to put down from beginning to end.
Bear with me here Interest was the only thing that made me kept reading this book. Are you kidding me?! I wish more of the book was focused on the mystery of Maddies death and her relationship with Sandra’s mother, than on her going back to moments in her boring life where she lost things.
The novel to end? Since the items vary with age, we’re brought back to different moments in Madison’s life in no order.
And, I have to ask Feb 26, AnnMarie rated it it was amazing Shelves: It shows the beauty of how important the little things can be, how important things people take for granted everyday can be, whether it’s a fi This book was absolutely amazing. Beautiful is how I’d describe this book. Crying, crying, and more crying Once you get to a certain point though you go to the Everafter where everyone is. We argue less, fight I really do mean like with pouches less, and evrrafter better siblings.

At the end, there’s also an extra page or two from another character 2 actually! To be fair though, I’m pretty sure my 13 year old buntley, like, tots luv how Amy, like, gets her.
Well, I chewed this one up and spit it out! Okay, so maybe most high school chemistry teachers aren’t going to launch into a lecture on wave-particle duality, but I still ate it up. It makes you hope amj maybe this is what’ll be there on the other side.
I’ve had it for awhile, but I’m paring down my YA selection, so I decided to finally read it. May 24, thebookblogger rated it it was amazing. There are serious loose ends left over. It really felt like the author was trying to say that death is the ultimate existence and it really makes me wonder if she’s Buddhist.
Madison’s death isn’t revealed until the end and it’s a shockerso you’re constantly thinking of all the possibilities along with Madison.
It was hard for me to get into this book until about 30 pages from the end.
