“I was anxiously waiting for Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry to be released after reading the synopsis. The US hardcover edition is absolutely gorgeous and is printed on the actual book which I love.
Noah and Echo individually are very interesting characters and together...unforgettable! The writing style, plot and chemistry is amazing in this book. Everyone needs to have someone like Noah in their life!
I really enjoyed the maturity and growth of the characters as they dealt with very difficult life issues instead of typical "high school drama." The reader experiences the painful, heart-wrenching pasts and journey for better futures with them. I work with children who have experienced trauma and Katie McGarry did an excellent job capturing the emotional roller coaster ride they endure.
I loved the friendships and the strong bonds in this story. The secondary characters are memorable especially Mrs. Collins. The relationship between Noah and Echo was well-written and I didn't want the book to end!
This book was my favorite 2012 read. I am really looking forward to reading Beth's story and anything this talented author publishes in the future! I bought this book in print and ebook versions so I will always have it to re-read. ”
