Jen's Reviews 5 Stars
I'm throwing in 2 reviews in this post because I was already almost half way through the 2nd book before I realized I forgot to blog it :) Sorry :) I wont give spoilers I promise :)
Well without spoilers - I guess all I can say is READ THIS SERIES!!!! lol
Ella and Micha have lived next door to each other since forever - and they have always had a strong bond - but both of them shied away from anything more than friends as they got older in fear of losing that friendship
Ella's home life is a little crazy - just as crazy as her mom was before she took her own life. Ella's biggest fear is having some of the "crazy" inside her - she feels it crawling up to the top all the time and it gets harder and harder for her to push it down. Her own fears are driving her more crazy.
That one night was all it took - and she took off -
8 months later - Ella returns home with her new BFF and college roommate Lila.
Lila is a spoiled rich girl who is completely the opposite of Ella - but everything Ella wants to be in order to keep the "Crazy" out -
When she sees Micha again - she feels her old self trying to climb back up again.
Micha can't stand not knowing where Ella went - doesn't know if she's ok or even alive and it's driving him "crazy" When he finally does find her, he starts to relax again, that is until he sees her.
The push and pull between Micha and Ella is strong - they really care for each other, but are always tip toeing around their feelings in order to "spare the other's feelings" it's hard to trust someone who doesn't open up to you.
I think that's about all I can say about the first book - I'm afraid to go into a review about the second book without giving away anything...
Book 2 - 5 Stars
AWESOME series!! I'm looking forward to more :)
