Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols


All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.

John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge -- and over....

Hmm... This book is supposed to be great (according to my friends) but I have to disagree with that. I can list lots of things I dislike about this book and just a few that I like. Lets go through what I dislike first.
  • the whole young police officer thing - I mean, he's like nineteen, don't you think that that is unreasonably young?
  • the whole Meg is a rebel just because she got sick once and she is afraid that she is not living her life to the fullest - I mean, wtf is she thinking, that drugs and stuff can duplicate happiness?
  • the stupid bridge - wtf with the bridge keeping After in the town. what was he thinking? that he's some kind of superhero that is assigned to protect everyone from the bridge. stupid guilt.
  • their names. After and Meg. Honestly, I have tried my best to like the names, but failed. I am done with trying. lame.
What I love?
  • The simple writing.
  • the title

So as a conclusion, I dislike this book. Period.

My Rating:
