“I am torn about this book. As other's have noted, this book is like a bad car accident. There are so many horrible things going on but you just cannot help but keep reading, and it is an easy read, so I flew through it. But when I step back and take a good look, this boy, Travis is really just an over-sized good-looking baby with tattoos that throws tantrums and beats people up when he doesn't get what he wants. And he is WAY too obsessive with Abby. And Abby? She seems completely fine that Travis sleeps around and is jealous of her every move and beats up any guy who interferes with their "relationship". And is she really that naive and unaware that Travis had feelings for her?....I mean, come one!
Overall, it was just too unrealistic. Can someone get into THAT many fights and never get arrested or thrown out of school, or even hurt!
If you are into the whole controlling, possessive boy thing, then this is your dream book. I gave it 3 stars b/c it did keep my attention wondering if they would end up together. This book should definitely NOT be in the young reader section b/c it romanticizes dysfunctional relationships and just has too much detail, drinking, and cuss words. ”
