Rae's always dreamed of dating a guy like Nathan. He’s nothing like her abusive stepfather—in other words, he’s sweet. But the closer they get, the more Nathan wants of her time, of her love, of her...and the less she wants to give.
As Rae’s affection for Nathan turns to fear, she leans on her friend Leo for support. With Leo, she feels lighter, happier. And possessive Nathan becomes jealous.
Then a tragedy lands Rae in the ICU. Now, hovering between life and death, Rae must find the light amid the darkness…and the strength to fight for life and the love she deserves.
The thing I had most troubles with was the characters. If it wasn't for the ending, I would've given this 1.
I liked the concept and plot of this but the characters were just too annoying. I couldn't relate to them at all and they were just plain bad. I liked the way it's written. There's poetry and it's not in chronological order.
It starts out the main character being ended up in a hospital and we don't know what happened until the end -which I thought was predictable. Before everything happened, Rae met a guy named Nathan, who is the most obsessive and clingy person I have ever read. They start dating and the more they're with each other, the more Rae feels suffocated and wants out. Later on we meet Leo, who is Rae's friend, and he is nothing like Nathan. He's sweet and caring.
Rae lives with her mom and step-dad. Her step-dad is a total maniac and a dick! And the worst part, her mom doesn't do anything to stop.
Because of the characters, I did not enjoy this and I had to skim through most of it.
