61. One Small Thing by Erin Watt
Beth’s sister died in a car accident three years ago and now her parents practically keep her under lock and key to keep her safe. Now in her senior year of high school she’s starting to rebel against them and all their rules including sneaking out to a party where she meets Chase. Then she discovers that things from his past mean they can never be together.
I mostly liked this book. I thought the characters were realistic for the most part. I was kind of annoyed by the whole she lost her virginity to a stranger and now they’re basically in love after one night of it all, but I get why the author had to do that for the rest of the plot to hang together. I would have liked to see them develop their relationship more gradually before figuring out that they were star crossed lovers of sorts. I give it a 7 out of 10.
