Who could do such a thing? Certainly not someone like Devon Davenport—a straight-A student-athlete with everything going for her. But in a moment of denial, desperation, and sheer panic, she did something that most people couldn’t even imagine. And now Devon is being charged with attempted murder. In a skillfully crafted story, Amy Efaw takes readers through the days leading up to—and after—Devon’s crime, painting an unexpected picture of a truly empathetic character caught up in an unimaginable situation.

    " It took me a while to get me into the book, but after the 3rd chapter it was just a page turner. I couldnt put it down(:! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caitlin | 2/1/2014

    " I really liked this book at first. It was intriguing and definitely different. The characters were well developed and the author clearly shows how someone who really isn't a bad person can do something so terrible. I thought it was a really good book... Right up until the last few pages. I really hated the end. When I put the book down after finishing it, I was really annoyed with the whole book because what had started so well, and had kept me interested until the end, was completely ruined by the last few pages. "

    " An amazingly interesting tale of a mom who... Well I'll just let you read it! XD "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendall | 1/3/2014

    " i couldn't decide weather or not i hated the main character. i wanted to understand her, i just couldn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany bell | 12/30/2013

    " the book was good.i stayed glued until the end.i didn't like the fact that it left me with questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 12/9/2013

    " This was a pretty riveting story about a teen mother who throws her baby into a dumpster, and goes into total denial about it. The end was a little lackluster, but the story was well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 6/24/2013

    " Absolutely loved this book! I heard about it on youtube and i thought at first it wouldn't be my thing, glad i picked it up anyways! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelli | 3/21/2013

    " The main character is quite annoying. I was very close to wanting her to fail. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/24/2013

    " Good book but the ending was left a little undone but a good read otherwise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 12/13/2012

    " This book has to be the one. I was so emotional the last pages were blurry as I read through my tears. This book is a wonderful look inside a teen mother's eyes, and a heartfelt, REAL story instead of a sad attempt. Do NOT read if you can't handle it. <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genoa | 6/30/2012

    " this book made me fustarted i was mad the whole time because i know from experince how scared it is being a teenager n pregnatn but it wouldnt be that hard just to but the baby up for adoption if you didnt want it but other then me wanting to beat the girl over thehead it was a good book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikki Sickle | 6/17/2012

    " has a very surprising ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elymi | 2/6/2012

    " This book drove me insane, because I kept wanting to hate the girl, Devon, because of what she did, but I could understand how it happen. I'm actually suprised that I finished it so easily. It was very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 11/18/2011

    " i really liked this book. it was interesting how someone can block out these events. it was definitely a page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 6/30/2011

    " So sad but probably more true to the way the world is than I realize "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/29/2011

    " Another YA book, but I think some teenagers should read it...might be a good book for some to relate to?!?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 6/27/2011

    " Very interesting read. Compeling and emotion invoking. What kind of person throws their baby away like a piece of garbage? Who could do such a thing? This is a story that tries to answer that very question.

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hanyah | 6/27/2011

    " WHAT ABOUT THE BABY!?!??! AND CONNOR?!?!?! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christie | 6/25/2011

    " Wasn't sure how to feel about this one. The idea was interesting (getting in the heads of "women who don't know that they are pregnant" and "women who leave their babies in dumpsters) but I just had a hard time believing this girl could be THAT in denial. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 6/24/2011

    " a cop out ending i couldn't stand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/21/2011

    " Good companion to Boot Camp...not exactly a parallel, but shows a 15-year old teen soccer player who denies her pregnancy and then suffers a spiral of daunting consequences including incarceration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annettelang12 | 6/20/2011

    " Listened to on tape. I think femle students may connect and gain perspective on a girl faced with pressures to "be good" and then dealing with the fallout of not... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gus | 6/20/2011

    " Very powerful book. I was shocked that I related to the main character at all. You could sense her fear, confusion and denial through the pages. You understood why she did what she did. "
