Clara’s relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it’s almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is—and what he’s willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won’t let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....
I have not read anything by Deb Caletti, but keep meaning to. (Especially since she'll be here in April for TeenBook Con!) This book in particular sounds pretty deep though. It reminds me of Sarah Dessen's Dreamland. Gahh that book really messed me up!! It's scary when fiction as tough as this one can be so dang real. Abuse is a scary subject. One that I think more teenage books should touch on. When a book sends a positive message about it, you don't realize who that story might touch. It could save lives. THAT is profound reading material.
What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday??
