Amy Efaw (www.amyefaw.com) is a former Army officer and freelance journalist. She lives with her family in Denver, Colorado. This is her second novel.From AudioFile:
How does an unlikable protagonist become a sympathetic heroine? This seems impossible in the case of Devon Davenport, a 17-year-old who has dumped her newborn into the trash. But narrator Rebecca Soler makes us care right from the beginning. She even sustains the listener's compassion during Devon's time in a juvenile center. Soler conveys Devon's thoughts and observations in a flat deadpan, contrasting them with her mother's too-cheery, too-bright dialogue. Devon's outward responses sound as dull and evasive to us as they do to her frustrated attorney. But Soler also expresses the inner Devon, who is filled with fear, confusion, and despair as she tries to find her way to self-awareness and hope. S.W.
