Are you a fan of urban teen romances? Then make sure you add the new book Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry to your library request list . . . or not, because we have a treat for you! First, the review:
High school seniors Echo and Noah just want their old lives back. Two years before, Echo lost her beloved brother and shortly thereafter, experienced an event so traumatic she’s blocked the memory. Only her heavily scarred arms, which she carefully hides, serve as reminder. After falling off the social radar, Echo’s back on the popular path–sitting in the lunchroom, talking with the right girls, and once again, dating her old boyfriend, Luke. Thanks to the new social worker at school, Echo even has a job tutoring Noah, the gorgeous outsider with the great abs and a bad rep. But Noah has been adjusting to some radical changes himself. Anxious to reclaim his young brothers from foster care, Noah struggles between following the rules and succumbing to his insecurities. Now that he’s fallen for Echo, Noah questions just how far he’ll go to get the girl he wants and the family he wants back.
Like your romances hot and steamy? The attraction between Noah and Echo practically sizzles off the page. Of course, between all the lusting and longing are fair amounts of tears, frustration and misunderstanding. And if you’ve fallen in love with these characters, rejoice! A sequel of sorts, titled Dare You To, is coming out in 2013 that will center on Beth, one of Noah’s closest friends.
