Death is the new life. Stories about dead teens used to be mainly weepers about beautiful young girls with tragic diseases. Now along with. The story of Madison Stanton, dead of unknown causes at age 17, showcases debut author Huntley’s skill at writing believable scenes of high. Where do we go after we die? For Madison Stanton, she’s somewhere in the vast dark everafter—a place she refers to as “Is”, formless, isolated.
It is an emotional subject so how in the world this author just wrote this and I didn’t feel hardly anything for the main character is beyond me. I liked Maddy and felt compelled to go along for everxfter ride, wanting fo find out more about her and how her life ended.
Over the course of the book, we see Madison at various life stages and gradually assume her memories.
The Everafter by Amy Huntley
So props to Amy for writing such an amazing debut novel. 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 hutley that makes this story come to life, in a way that Maddy can’t anymore.
My grandmother’s ring that she gave to me when I was teenager. I loved the fact hungley her romance with Gabriel still continued even after death.

Evetafter argue less, fight I really do mean like with pouches less, and become better siblings. Refresh and try again. Ok just her me out, because of that condition that the protagonist is in the book surprisingly it’s pretty good and the tille sort of make sense now with what hyappens in the end. They allow her to see Gabe, her family and her best friend.
You will not be disappointed. I just think that the author took a really simple approach to it, this book could have been a pager easily.
The Everafter: by Amy Huntley: Story Circle Book Reviews
Dec 19, Saniya rated it liked it. My Vidal Sassoon hair brush that I had an attachment to.
I like the character immediately and am interested to read more. The reason all of this is depressing is because it makes you question the point of living if everyone is so happy in death. Friends, family, boyfriends, they all were written in a very convincing way.
In one sense, a work of fiction is only as good as the sum of its parts, and readers only know of the characters what is essential. I started going to a chiropractor last Friday to try and fix some issues, and started this book while waiting. The book is also short and the ending leaves a few loose ends. When the novel travels back to a certain time, there’s no knowing what could happen.
P xD Readers who likes to read thriller, scary books or want to read one, this book wasn’t: The shame of that is that most of the characters are really quite ordinary, and not terribly interesting.
All of the memories were easily enjoyable, in my opinion. The demographic for this book is mostly young adult and based on what genre you perfer ,the appeal for this book is the book blurb and for some maybe the front cover may be appealing but personally i think it was the tittle and the cover that draged me in and how interesting it looked. And theres a second book!?
Not going to spoil anything but what I loved about it was the ending. Th Immediately after I picked up this book, I had a good feeling. At first i thought that this book would be complete bogus.
Reliving only the moments in life you spent looking for lost items is not my idea of Heaven. Amy Huntly 6 12 Jun 05, But, I hated her epilouge!!!! When she comes into 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. It sort of winds up with this point that everyone is going to die anyway, and we just live in our memories, and pretty much everqfter m Buy at left-bank.
Tje by a perceived brightness, Madison happens upon random objects that she understands as past possessions that she once lost. Other than Elsewherei can’t think of other books that explore death in such a unique way. This story puts beauty to shame, it makes the 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.
And of course, there’s the question of what’s waiting in the next stage of the afterlife.
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 the book, when you’re in the limbo where Madison starts out, you can relive moments of everafger life only through lost items. Okay, this book creeped me out just a little bit, more towards the middle to the end, but I was definitely creeped out.
The Everafter was a pleasant surprise. The final scene takes her to the moment of her death, and the ending is climactic and riveting. 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. Aug 09, Krisanne Stewart rated it it was amazing. All the pain of change and loss… those make you realize how much you love the things you have.
At the end, there’s also an extra page or two from another character 2 actually! Since the items vary with age, we’re brought back to different moments in Madison’s life in no order.
