Efaw tells a powerful story about an infant left in the trash to die, a teenage mother who never realized she was pregnant, and the girl''s unforgettable journey toward clarity, acceptance, and redemption.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.

Praise

"This is a skillfully written, emotionally raw story detailing one girl's difficult journey from denial of her circumstances to acceptance and redemption." 09/01/2009
