Pushing the Limits (Harlequin Teen)

Pushing the Limits  - Katie McGarry I read Pushing Limits a while ago, and loved it. I still remember how it made me feel, and it’s rare for Young Adult titles to leave that kind of impression on me. At first, I wasn’t sure how to review it, though. I wanted to let it all sink in, because then it is way easier to go with sarcasm, but with Pushing the Limits, even months after reading everything about Echo, I still feel ‘raw’.Echo was a very real character. I was able to relate to her, and see things through her eyes, but I don’t think I can do her any justice: Everything about Pushing the Limits, even the HEA, made me sad. Both Echo and Noah deserve better than they got, in the first place and in the end. Even though they are fictional characters, I felt very real empathy.But it made me wonder why. It could be the writing style, which was very clear and consistent. Obviously, the characters, and also the plot and conflicts, both of which hit close to home. But when I look at the whole book and try to pinpoint the reason why I love it down to one single thing, I have no idea. All I can say is that when I first saw this title on Goodreads, I felt a weird compulsion to check it out, and then request it on NetGalley.And though I wish I could talk about the content of the book more eloquently -about her therapist, his brothers, the school, and car- I am literally unable to do so. Which frustrates me alot. Just like the HEA did. In a good way, though.In ShortRead this. It’s a mature YA title, that makes you feel things, it’s romantic and sad and sweet, and it has a hopeful ending. There is lots of progress, and really, everything one could want from a YA Contemporary novel. 5 stars.(It’s declared a series, but the second title won’t be about Echo and Noah.)
