Lately, I've been reading British YA books, He's after me by Chris Higgins, You against me by Jenny Downham, Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma and I've found they always have so much more than American YA books. Everything seems much more real. I don't think this is because I'm British, I think there is something more gritty about it. Nothing get's held back. they swear, drink have sex, and bad things happen and they never get the Hollywood ending. They get a normal ending. A real one.
This book gave me a few hours of nail biting adventure. Even though Ty, was the Bad guy, I couldn't help but wish that Gemma would reach out and comfort him, or be at least a bit nicer. I know I probably sound like I had Stockholm Syndrome, but i think that's what made this unique.
A great read..
