Review: I loved After. It was an amazing book. Amy Efaw is such an amazing writer. I really couldn’t put this book down. The characters were amazing and pulled me in from the very beginning. I'm so lucky that I had the chance to read this book before it's published. I loved this book from the beginning. Everything about it just pulled me in. The middle of the book wasn't slow at all like some books are. But the ending for this book, took my breath away. I was not expecting it at ALL. It fit the book so wonderfully. In the back of my mind, I knew this book would have an unexpected ending. It was just needed, but I didn't see it ending this way. I think that's why I really loved this book. You have to read this book the first chance you get!
