Goodreads:  Katie McGarry captivated readers with her “riveting, emotional”* Young Adult debut, Pushing the Limits. In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love…

Lila McCormick, Echo’s best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.

Ope’s Opinion:  This book would have been five chairs, but I did not want it to end so soon!  It was very short and sweet, yet the characters were well developed.  Even though it was short, I felt like it was a complete story.

I was swept away in the story line.  I want an update.  I want to know where they are now!

This is my second Katie McGarry book and I intend to read more of her books!

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
