BOOK: Pushing The Limits
AUTHOR: Katie McGarry
PUBLISHER: Harlequin
RRP: $19.99

"MY father is a control freak, my evil stepmother is about to deliver to me the spawn of Satan in the way of a baby brother or sister... I am mourning my brother who died in Afghanistan, my mother has issues.

"My therapist keeps asking, 'Am I doing okay?' I want to yell back, 'How the hell do you think I'm doing'?"

No one know what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to an outsider with scars on her arms.

Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of what happened.

All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to being normal.

She spends her day ensuring that the teachers and therapists all are on her side when it comes to her chosen career path, much to her father's disdain.

Echo is being stretched between her own dreams and her father's.

Then her therapist offers her the role or tutor.

But her pupil is the bad boy of the school.

He is hot, dangerous and sexy.

Every girl at school wants to get up close and personal with Noah Hutchins, the pot-smoking, girl-using loner.

With the secrets they're both keeping, Echo and Noah being together should be impossible.

But Echo is the girl who might just discover the truth about him.

Pushing the Limits was an enjoyable and easy teen read.

It was racy enough to hold your interest without being M-rated.
