Madison Stanton doesn’t know where she is or how she got there. But she does know this–she is dead. And alone, in a vast, dark space. The only company she has in this place are luminescent objects that turn out to be all the things Maddy lost while she was alive. And soon she discovers that with these artifacts, she can re-experience–and sometimes even change–moments from her life: Her first kiss. A trip to Disney World. Her sister’s wedding. A disastrous sleepover.
In reliving these moments, Maddy learns illuminating and sometimes frightening truths about her life–and death.
The Everafter tells the story of what happens to Madison Stanton after she dies. She finds herself in a in between. In between what she doesn’t know. All the things she lost in life are there. Keys, homework, clothes, everything. She learns that these things can take her back to the time she lost them and eventually help her learn how she died.
Amy Huntley has written a unique debut. Its unlike anything you have ever read before. The concept is very original and gripping.
The characters, Maddy and Gabe are very well done and easy to connect to. Even if you just get their story in flashbacks.
The author also does an excellent job of weaving the mystery of Madison’s death into the story. There are several people who could have done it but you never find out for sure until the end.
I enjoyed this book. It was a fast-paced story with some twists I didn’t see coming. I look forward to reading more from this author.
