Review: Pushing the limits by Katie McGarry
Title: Pushing the limits
published: July 31, 2012
rating: 5 out of 5
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
I love this book. i thought it was great.
The things i loved about this book......Noah and Echo. Echo is the dark, lonely character that was once popular. the reason she is no longer popular is that she went through a traumatic experience, which her mind blocked. After that she kind of isolated herself from people in school, deeming herself the outcast. It was interesting going through that journey of figuring out what exactly happened to her.
Noah on the other hand is the hot guy of every girl that is known to go for one-night stands. he's too scared to commit to a relationship. there's also a whole other side to him, that loves his brothers and would do anything and everything for them. i loved that side of him, but sometimes his anger got the best of him and he didn't really think clearly. i did, however really love the scenes with his brothers. hey broke my heart and made me love him even more.
This contemporary is really deep. It deals with pretty real ad scary issues. The emotion in this book cant be made up. it got me to tear up here and there. i really enjoyed it.
