After by Amy Efaw
This book begins as Devon is arrested for murder. She has just had a baby, secretly, that she sealed in a trash bag and threw into the dumpster behind her apartment building. But Devon doesn't remember some of these events and is unwilling to talk about what she can remember. After being healed at the hospital for a few days she is sent to juvenile detention where she awaits her hearing to determine if she will face her charges as a child or an adult. The big question that needs to be answered is whether Devon planned to hide her pregnancy and get rid of her baby all along or if there is another reason to account for her actions. Even Devon herself isn't sure.
