Summary: (from goodreads) “Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you can’t die again in a thousand different ways.”
For sixteen-year-old Winnie Coleman, dying is the least of her worries. Between coming to terms with her mother’s unexpected death, trying to think up new and inventive ways to break up her father and Girlfriend #3, and keeping her brother from chewing off his fingers, she has her hands full. Courtesy of a thin patch of ice and failed swimming lessons, all of that changes in the blink of an eye.
In death Winnie will find the answers that eluded her in life, and a whole slew of other questions she never thought to ask. Like why is she stuck with Sam for a guide? Sure, he’s funny and cute in a geeky sort of way, but he wears sweater vests… and loafers. For a girl who has tattoos on her face and glue in her hair, it’s not exactly the best match up.
But when Sam is taken and his very existence threatened, Winnie must make the ultimate choice between cowardice and courage. Faithlessness and loyalty. Family... and love.
Suspenseful and action packed, After Ever is a must read for anyone who ever wondered: what happens next?
Have you ever wondered what happens next after you die. Well in this book After Ever it takes you on a adventure of a sixteen year old that ends up falling through the ice and dying because she went looking for her brother that came up missing. I loved the book so much because I could imagine myself in her situation before. My father died when I was 8 years old and I ended up taking care of my brother and sister. I always wanted to end up breaking up any guy my mom ever went out with because it wasn't my dad. I always had questions about the after life and it was answered for me in this book. I was so upset when the book was over with. I wanted more....
If you would like a really great book by a great author that helps you come to terms with somebody close to you passing away. I would read this. I caught myself crying through the book because I felt for Winnie. I knew what she was going through. I can't wait to read more from this author...
