"This is a skillfully written, emotionally raw story detailing one girl's difficult journey from denial of her circumstances to acceptance and redemption."
From the Publisher
Annotation High school student Devon Davenport seems to have the perfect life: she's a straight "A" student who is also a star soccer player with Olympic dreams. However, Devon has a secret-one so devastating that she herself can't acknowledge it: She's pregnant. When she finally gives birth, Devon, still in deep denial, abandons the baby in a dumpster, a decision which lands her in a juvenile detention center facing trial for attempted murder.
Editors Note 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.
