Who could do such a thing? Certainly not someone like Devon DavenportÃ‘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 couldnÃ•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 toÃ‘and afterÃ‘DevonÃ•s crime, painting an unexpected picture of a truly empathetic character caught up in an unimaginable situation.
-Efaw captures Devon+s mortification, denial, and despair, shifting fluidly between her present experiences in a juvenile jail and the terrifying night a baby inexplicably arrived.+ -Kirkus Reviews
