As it turned out, the concept was the best part. There’s no woo-woo, creepy, haunting kind of stuff. It makes you hope that maybe this is what’ll be there on the other side. Madison doesn’t know how she died, though she suspects it happened around the time she was 17 since she can’t remember whether her sister’s baby was a boy or a girl.

Then she later has the power to talk to other spirits and sit back and talk while the memory is playing or going on. And soon she discovers that, with these artifacts, she can reexperience – and even change – moments from her life. The genre is almost like a blend of genres because to me at least everafger has some realistic fiction traits for example: The writing is simple, yet the concept is complex and alluring.

This is the sort of book that’s really, really light on plot. The book is targeted towards YA, other than one violent scene it is a middle grade book. The epilogue will leave you with the perfect sense of closure with a hint of regret for the final character in the book. My sadness was for, about, 1 minute.


Interest was the only thing that made me kept reading this book. But she does know this – she is dead.

You will not be disappointed. 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 first kiss, a charm bracelet, or even physics homework, it’s what happens because of these things, what happens around these things that makes this story come to am, in a way that Maddy can’t anymore.

It started off with Madison realizing that she was dead. Not going to spoil anything but what I loved about it was the ending. Another problem I had was that the hyntley were underdeveloped, but I think because we huntely get glimpses of Madison’s life this can be expected.

Amy Huntley’s creativity and originality shines in this novel. The style was choppy and uncomfortable but I kept reading and got into the flow.

And of course, there’s the question of what’s waiting in the next stage of the afterlife.

The Everafter

Five stars doesn’t even begin to cover it. I was like this: 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. At first i thought that this book would be tye bogus.


I know what you’re thinking when you see that. 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. Would recommend if you have a smy reading challenge I guess, because it was a very easy and quick read.

With the help of some ghostlike objects from her life, she tries to fit the puzzle pieces together for an answer.


I especially liked the tie-ins to the poems of Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost; Huntley really shows off her English teacher background and love of literature.

The ending was weird for me though. Mar 23, Ellie Haygood rated it it was amazing.
