Amy Huntley’s book will do the same for you. (Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why). A mystery about life’s greatest mysteries, a love story that transcends death, a ghost story with real substance, and an altogether fascinating novel about the redemptive possibilities in lost things. Amy Huntley says that a colleague's musings were the spark that inspired The Everafter: "I've always had a tendency to attach myself to the objects of my life, so when one of my friends said something like, 'Wouldn't it be funny if all those things you lost turned up after you were dead, just when you didn't need them.

Amy Huntley more then just outdoes herself with this book

Madison Stanton doesn't know where she is or how she got there. Amy Huntley more then just outdoes herself with this book. Though you know form the very beginning that that Madison Stanton is dead, you don't know how, why, or anything else about her for that matter, until she goes on a trip to find all the things she's lost over her lifespan. 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 This book was absolutely amazing.

The Everafter is a totally unique book that's not quite like anything else I've ever read. Amy Huntley draws you in with her first sentence, "I'm Dead" and doesn't let you go, only sucks you in further and further. It was such an interesting concept of after death - going back and reliving moments of objects you lost

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 reexperience—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.

This is a haunting and ultimately hopeful novel about the beauty of even the most insignificant moments—and the strength of true love even beyond death.

I really liked this book. The narration was a little juvenile, but Madison IS a 17 year old girl, so I can forgive that.

This is the story of life after death for Madison. I love books that look into what happens after we die. I recently read 'Elsewhere' and 'Down to Oath' and picked this book up because it was recommended as something similar.

The question throughout this story though is, how did Madison die? We learn early on that she's a young woman still in high school, but other than that, we (and she) have no idea. I figured it out at around the 50%-60% mark. It was a little overly dramatic for my tastes, and I was hoping I was wrong, so that's why I knocked off a star. The overall message of the book was one I really liked though, so I'd still definitely recommend this to anyone who may be interested.

Madison wakes up in nothingness--a blank void with a seemingly random group of objects floating around her. The only thing she knows for sure is that she is dead, though she does not know how or when she died. Madison eventually figures out that the objects floating with her are objects she lost when she was alive. By touching each object, she can return to the moment and relive the events. Madison obsessively touches these objects, traveling back to relive these lost moments of life and discover how she died.

The mystery of this story was interesting and kept my attention, but what will stay with me far longer is the way the author described mundane events to highlight how truly precious they are. Though I did not experience the same events Madison experienced in her life, I have experienced the same emotions: the feeling of comfort when your mother comes and makes everything right again, the feeling of jealousy raw and frustrating, the joy of unrestrained friendship, the mixed anger and sadness at the falling out with a good friend. All of these little emotions were perfectly described and made both Madison and my own memories come alive. The epilogue was bittersweet and a perfect way to close the story.

Another interesting point was how the author managed to create a fully realized character at not just one stage of her life, but from young childhood through age 17. Madison's child-self that we see in her object flashbacks was as fully rendered as her 17-year-old self. Further, these stages mesh logically to create a believable history and progression of a person. A notable achievement.

I highly recommend this book, especially to readers who enjoyed Thirteen Reasons Why. Just be prepared with a box of tissues.

Something about The Everafter just made me have to keep reading. It was addicting! The plot was so unique, it was amazing. I admit, at first I was having a lot of trouble getting into it, but pretty soon I was so into it I didn't want to put it down. For a debut novel, Huntley's writing style is amazing, everything just flows and the story line and characters are really developed when the plot doesn't really give to a lot of development. Each chapter alternated between Maddy talking about life after she has died and her memories from different ages that she is experiencing. The alternating chapters was a great way to build up the story and by the end I was so engrossed I read straight through it last night. I was shocked to find out how she died... I don't want to give anything away so you'll have to read it to find out! Maddy was a great character and even though through most of the book she was narrating as already being dead, I felt like she was alive and well and someone I knew. It was creepy how well everything tied together in the end, as well. I was worried that Maddy's death had been built up and built up until the suspense was killing me, that I was worried the ending would be a disappointment, but I was completely wrong, it was fabulous. I'm really looking forward to reading more by Amy Huntley!

Death is something that has always fascinated me, I mean where do you go after you die? Huntley's perspective was really interesting and Maddy's sister, Kristen, brought up some really great points about death itself. The writing style of this book might not be for everything, but if at first it seems confusing, KEEP READING! It's completely worth it. In addition, I really loved the cover, it just went so perfectly with the book I couldn't imagine it having a different one. Covers with bright color contrasts always draw me to them. Like the stark red apple on the black cover of Twilight, this luminous, white flower really pops against the deep purple background. I highly recommend you go get a copy of The Everafter, it's amazing and Maddy's story will stick in my mind for a long time.

I first read this book in 2010 and immediately fell in love with it. I even read it six more times that following week. But I want to tell you how much I love this book because like you said yourself has object attachment well so do I, and I can relate to that as well as wondering what it would be die and what will happen to me afterwards. This book has helped me in some ways be less afraid to die because for some reason I am so worked up about death that I don't pay attention to living and the Everafter has helped me in my life time so far and realize how much people take there life for granted and how we need to enjoy the little amount of time we have on this earth. But with all do respect I would really want to know what happens to Madison and Gabe when they get to the Everafter? Does Madison find her parents? Do she and Gabe have like a ghost marriage? But I really just wanted to thank you for wrighting this most magnificent book and I really hope you have more book available for me to read!!!
