Review of 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....”
This is the first MTV book I have read and the blurb made this book sound really interesting. The beginning of the book starts out with actions at the bridge, the bridge is one of the main focuses of the story.
I loved Meg pretty early on, she seemed unique and I empathised with her character. But as the book went on I found her to me immature, over dramatic and annoying. Meg and John clashed so much.
Towards the end Meg changed a lot so she could be with John. Personally girls should never change to be with a guy.
I struggled with the places that were pointed out throughout this book as I have never been to America. The writing wasn’t that great and I found that certain parts didn’t make any sense.
