One Small Thing by Erin Watt

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author duo of The Royals and When It’s Real comes a sensational new novel about a girl falling for the one boy she should never have met…

Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems like a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.

Wow, heart-wrenching and gut twisting.
I'm going to be honest here this has left me emotionally exhausted.

I went into One Small Thing completely blind. I have such faith in these authors that I don't need the build up. Just give me the book, please. Well folks, what I got was in no way what I expected. Emotionally raw, coming of age adolescents with a massive dose of in your face, gut-wrenching reality.

I was so conflicted about which way to feel. Be one with the character of Beth as she tries to live her new reality or feel the emotional empathy of a parent. The juxtaposition of my emotions just bleed out all over this book.

This one isn't a light and fluffy Gossip Girl kinda read. It will stick and it will hurt a bit. But that ending... gives me everything.
