So wrong for each other...and yet so right.
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.
What's with contemporary lately? Has it always been this good? Or am I just turning in a new leaf?
I was skeptical when first going into Pushing the Limits because 1. It is contemporary, 2. It is fairly long for a contemporary story, 3. It wasn't high on my to-read-list. But at the end of the day once I made up my mind to pick it up and start reading it was game over; Pushing the Limits had me in it's grip and it wouldn't let me go.
I loved that the story was told from both points of view, both Noah's and Echo's. Thank. Goodness. It adds so much. You get Noah's total male point of view (the things this boy said and thought could definitely make your grandmother blush) in contrast with Echo's not girly per se but dark perspective.
