SummaryAdd a Summary
Meeting the gorgeous and kind Christian at a basketball game, Clara quickly finds herself falling in love with him. She and her father soon become wary of him when Christian grows jealous, possessive, and quick to lose his temper. Wanting to make a clean break, Clara breaks up with him before it can get worse. Christian, who claims that he can change, becomes obsessed with the idea of getting back together. Christian continually emails and calls her, drives by her house, and begs for her forgiveness. After a particularly scary confrontation, Clara's father becomes concerned about her safety and moves them out to a beach town. While there, Clara gets a new job and meets another teen, Finn and his brother. As she begins to open her heart up to another guy, Clara deals with the emotional toll Christian has caused on her while worrying that he may go to extreme lengths to find her.
I really liked this book. It's been a long time since I read it though, so my memory might be a little fuzzy.
Clara used to date Christian. At the time that they met, she fell for him right away. He's gorgeous, kind, and always giving her compliments. Why wouldn't she like him? At first she finds all his attention to be cute and sweet. But after a while, it gets creepy. Thinking she's doing the right thing, Clara breaks up with him before it gets bad. But Christian doesn't like that. Before she knows it, Christian won't leave her alone. He's obsessive about it. He drives by her house all the time, begging and pleading. Her inbox is always full of messages from him, and after a while, she just deletes them, unread. And he's scaring her. With her dad, Clara moves to a little beach town without telling ANYONE in hopes of leaving Christian behind. But with the extreme lengths that Christian is going to, is that even possible?
I would definitely rate this a 5/5 stars, but it's kind of creepy. It's good, and will keep you up at night reading, but if you're looking for a light read this isn't it. However, if you're looking for something much deeper and more entertaining, I would definitely reccommend this to you.
