I grabbed this book the other day when browsing through the library. It’s a young adult book and I have to say that I really did enjoy reading it.
“This is a story of young/first love between two teens (Samantha and Jase) that grew up next door to each other, yet never really knowing one another. Jase is a Garrett, and is from a big family with a messy yard and fun times. Samantha, on the other hand, lives with her often absent mom (who’s a senator) and sister. Her mother deeply disapproves of the Garrett’s and their way of life and they live such different lives that Samantha has never even talked to any of the Garretts since they moved in seven years ago. That is, until one night when the handsome, caring Jase suddenly befriends Samantha. She becomes entwined in his world yet he is not really part of hers (not by his choice). They fall deeper in love each day until the unthinkable happens and Samantha has to decide which family she is going to support and stand behind.
Note: There is some language and drug use by one of the characters in the book but it ends positively showing the dangers of addiction. There are also some heated scenes between the two lovebirds. I really enjoyed this book though. So, there it is…my review.
