The high school class ring my dad insisted buying for me.
It was just kind of I don’t quite know what to say about this book. This ghost story kind of had me looking over my shoulder as I got the sense that someone was watching. I had a strong and uncomfortable feeling. Aug 29, Johanna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Feb 26, AnnMarie rated it it was amazing Shelves: The writing is simple, yet the concept is complex and alluring. The thought that we all continually exist in various planes both in life and death simultaneously is unbelievably comforting and makes thoughts of everaftr seem like less of a loss.
We do find everqfter the cause of her death, and it made me want to roll my eyes. This is the sort of book that’s really, really light on plot.
It wrapped up too juntley. Did everaftef intentionally kill her cat? 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. They allow her to see Gabe, her family and her best friend.

The Everafter by Amy Huntley – book project by brianna aldridge on Prezi
The story is told through the different vignettes of Madison going thd to the moments when she lost a a particular item. The author does put in life messages about, the afterlife and how you should live and enjoy your life when you are alive, but all that doesn’t come in until the very eveerafter so it doesn’t bog down the story and it isn’t heavy handed. Dickinson always frustrated me, but I would have liked to learn about Dickinson from her. Other than Elsewherei can’t think of other books that explore death eferafter such a unique way.
So you wonder, did she die at seventeen? If you’re looking for something a tad out of the ordinary for YA, this might be something for you to try.
Since the items vary with age, we’re brought back to different moments in Madison’s life in no order. And now to my favorite part. It was a tad too dramatic, and ridiculously sad and needless. Feb 28, Jade Faletti rated it it was amazing. How did she die? 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.
You want Maddy to find out how she died yet you don’t want to find out how she died because you’re afraid that will be the end for her. This is a fiction book.
Okay, this book creeped me out just a little bit, more towards the middle to the end, but I was definitely creeped out. I know this is a common style these days but I think it’s beautiful.
Then we follow Maddy and Gabe as they fall in love.
The answer was no! Lots of Emily Dickinson references so if you like her poetry, you should really enjoy this book because it everaftee clear the author is a fan. Lang und breit The Everafter liegt ein tolles Konzept zugrunde. Humor and sadness weave in and out.
