Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols Review  

Posted by: Karla in

Author: Jennifer Echols Paperback: 256pgs.
Publisher: March 17th 2009 by Pocket Books/MTV Books

Summary:All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge - and over...

My Thoughts:This book was amazing. It was amazing seeing the relationship grow and become real. These characters each had such grief that they never really got to show or pass or confront that they would never be able to live their lives right. John was never able to let go of what kept him in protecting the bridge. Meg was trying to live her life to the fullest, even though in the process she mught hurt herself or others. These characters push each other to their limits and on,, but allow themselves to finally find away to surpass those things that kept them from being who they could really be.
I heard a lot of great things about this book, and once I got to page 20 or so I just couldn't stop reading. I finished it that night. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I cannot wait to read Forget You. I wanted to anyway, but now I want to more. I give this a high Five.

+5 Stars
