Daring You to Read : Jennifer Brown's books !!
When Alex falls for the charming new boy at school, Cole, a handsome, funny, sports star who adores her, she can't believe she's finally found her soul mate-someone who truly understands her and loves her for who she really is.
At first, Alex is blissfully happy. Sure, Cole seems a little jealous of her relationship with her best friends, Zack and Bethany, but what guy would want his girlfriend spending all of her time with another boy? But as the months pass, Alex can no longer ignore Cole's small put-downs, pinches, or increasingly violent threats. As Alex struggles to come to terms with the sweet boyfriend she fell in love with and the boyfriend whose "love" she no longer recognizes, she is forced to choose - between her "true love" and herself.
This book blew me away. I thought about it for a long time after having finished reading it .. Jennifer's writing is amazing and I strongly recomment this book if you're looking for a powerful read. Here's my review.
I would also like to recommend her other book : Hate List
Goodreads : After Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opens fire on their school cafeteria, Val is shot trying to stop him, but is implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. Now, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. A "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year.
This one was actually my first jennifer Brown's book and I adored it as well.
I strongly advise you to pick up her books if you haven't yet ..
