The Edge of Never

av J.A. Redmerski
 
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
 
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.
 
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.
 
But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?  
 
Wow, jag finner inte ord. Det här må vara en av de bästa böckerna, någonsin. En av det bästa ungdomsböcker i alla fall! Den är inte så förutspående som jag först trodde och det är så befirande att kunna gapskratta i vissa scener, men sen hulka av gråt i andra. Jag har aldrig gråtit så mycket i hela mitt liv till en bok. 
 
Om ni har läst den vet ni vilket kapitel jag menar om jag säger det där i slutet. Jag var tvungen att lägga ner boken för att gråta ett tag och sen ta upp den och hoppas på det bästa. Jag var lyckligvis vis nog att hålla mig borta från alla spoilers och hade verklingen ingen aning om vad som skulle ske. Jag hade i slutet en liten aning om vad som var hans anledning till att fly iväg från livet, men herregud, jag förstår verkligen hans beslut nu. 
 
Deras kemi är så otrolig. Ibland pratar dem bara om allmänna saker, men samtalen har ändå alltid något syfte. Jag gillar också hur karaktärerna mognar på resan och finner sig själva. Båda har haft världens värsta otur genom livet, i allting. Men den hittar varandra och känner sig hela. Vilken bok, vilken bok! Alla måste läsa den här!
 
Gillar du den här boken kan jag rekommendera Hopeless och Slammed av Colleen Hover, Easy av Tammara Webber, The Sea of Tranquility av Katja Millay och Beautiful Disaster av Jamie McGuire.
