Book Review: ‘Afterworlds,’ By Scott Westerfeld | : NPR
She finds an amazing apartment with awesome views in one day of looking. I’m giving it 2 stars because of the parody it could be, one that made me snicker and nod my head in acknowledgment. But as the book went on and as I read more of AfterworldsI began to hate Afterworlds more and more. Crickets have been chirping for a while as I try to get past that sentence. Yes, it’s amazing, it’s also, in a way, more of a fantasy than the story of Lizzie walking among the dead!

The YA author part was about this girl writing, selling, and publishing her book Afterworlds. This feels like it was written for me, but I think most authors would be offended by this, knowing how much work goes into becoming an author and getting your start as a writer.
And then, when I had the book, I just I would especially recommend this book to people interested in the world of publishing, as well as readers who like intriguing concepts, quick and easy reads, and stories told in multiple perspectives.
