The concept isn’t something I’ve ever read and it’s so intriguing just to think about. And who ratted Tammy out? The items vary from aky to jewelry, homework to a rattle.
I know what you’re thinking when you see that. The epilogue was a very nice touch though. Madison doesn’t know how she died, though she suspects it happened around the time she was 17 since she can’t remember whether her sister’s baby was a boy or a girl.
She goes from toddler to teenager to adolescent, even baby which is kind of creepy to read! The Everafter is one of those books that sticks with you after you read it. They allow her to see Gabe, her family and her best friend. But overall it was a great book and a fantastic read.

The novel to end? Friends, family, boyfriends, they all were written in a very convincing way.
There are serious loose ends left over. This book hhuntley sad and depressing and it makes me wonder where the author’s head was at when she wrote this. Why was another ghost apologizing to Maddy? 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.
Ohh, this book ended The epilogue will leave you with the perfect sense of closure with a hint of regret for the final character in the book. Would recommend if you have a high reading challenge I everatter, because it was a very easy and quick read. The only company Maddy has in this place are luminescent objects that turn out to be all the things she lost while she was alive.
