AFTER by Amy Efaw GIVEAWAY

An infant left in the trash to die. A teenage mother who never knew she was pregnant . . .

Before That Morning, these were the words most often used to describe straight-A student and star soccer player Devon Davenport: responsible, hardworking, mature. But all that changes when the police find Devon home sick from school as they investigate the case of an abandoned baby. Soon the connection is made—Devon has just given birth; the baby in the trash is hers. After That Morning, there’s only one way to define Devon: attempted murderer.

Who would do something so terrible? Certainly not someone like Devon—straight-A student, soccer player with Olympic dreams, more mature than her own mother. But desperation and panic drove her to do what most people can’t even imagine. Now Devon ’s in a juvenile detention center charged with attempted murder. If she’s tried as an adult, she faces life in prison.

Does Devon deserve that punishment? Your answer depends on whether you believe her story.
*Viking, August 11th, 2009

Now you can have a chance to decide for yourself whether or not you believe Devon's story. Penguin has been kind enough to offer up a finished copy of After. Now, if you've seen my review and my interview with Amy, you'll know that this is definitely one to check out! (And if you haven't, pop on by :)

So now that your attention's hooked, you're probably wondering how to enter. It's simple. Just comment with an e-mail address. Contest is open to the US and Canada. Will end Saturday, August 15th.

Additional entries available (please leave a separate comment for each for simplicity's sake!)

Thanks for holding the contest! This book seems so...I don't know how to classify it, but it really seems cool. Like LOVELY BONES.
