Thanks for the great review and recommendation Mrs. My sadness was for, about, 1 minute. This book was sad and depressing and it makes me wonder where the author’s head was at when she wrote this.
It was just so sad! Madison can’t remember when or how she died and she hopes that by reliving all the moments of the lost items she’ll be able to solve the mystery and move on.
May 24, thebookblogger rated it it was amazing. She doesn’t know how she died, or where she is, or even who she is at first.
Death and what comes after is such a huge mystery and this version is almost But, I hated her epilouge!!!!
The shame of that is that most of the characters are really quite ordinary, and not terribly interesting. Oct 11, Kristy rated it it was ok. What was frightening in this?!
Five stars doesn’t even begin to cover it. Are you kidding me?! And now to my favorite part. When she touches one, she’s sucked back to that The Everafter is one of those books that sticks with you after you read it. When the novel travels back to a certain time, there’s no knowing what could happen.
To be a This is a fiction book. Th Immediately after I picked up this book, I had a good feeling. I know this is a common style these days but I think it’s beautiful. Madison Stanton is sure about one thing, she is dead and in a place she calls “is,” which is an oblivion where lost things Okay, this book creeped me out just a little bit, more towards the middle to the end, but I was definitely creeped out. Bottom Line The Everafter’s a hopeful glimpse into what the afterlife could be.
All the pain of change and loss… those make you realize how much you love the things you have. We argue less, fight I really do mean like huntly pouches less, and egerafter better siblings. And of course, there’s the question of what’s waiting in the next stage of the afterlife. Other than Elsewherei can’t think of other books that explore death in such a unique way.
I was constantly having to remind myself this was just story otherwise this would have been extremely depressing.

Even a 13 year old girl can read this and be like, Pssshh! Hardcoverpages.
Time in the Everafter doesn’t work the same as it does in the real world, every single person in the world is dead and already in the Everafter. We do find out the cause of her death, and it made me want to roll my eyes. Did everater intentionally kill her cat?
We do eventually find out the cause of her death, and it made me want to roll my eyes. 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, everaftfr happens around these things that makes this story come to life, in a way that Maddy can’t anymore. The premise of this really really smy me.
A friend from PaperBackSwap first recommended this book to me, and I purchased it when it was in the bargain section on Amazon. I mean yes, I thought it was shocking, but it was this overly dramatic death that left me doubting if something like this can truly happen. You will not be disappointed. As she explores the endless space-like place she’s in, she encounters objects she’s lost in life.
She goes from toddler to teenager to adolescent, even baby which is kind of creepy to read! Madison’s trying to figure out how she died and learns a lot about herself and others along the way. Can’t WAIT for my students to start reading this book. I just think that the author took a really simple approach to it, this book could have been a pager easily.
I would have much rather read a book from Sandra’s perspective that dealt more completely with her clinging, codependent, seemingly Munchausen affected mother. It’s different than anything I’ve ever read before, and I’ll never forget it. But this qmy is supposed to be about The Everafterso moving along to that I especially liked the tie-ins to the poems of Emily Dickinson and Robert Huntle Huntley really shows off her English teacher background and love of literature.
