Katie McGarry was a teenager during the era of grunge and boy bands and remembers those years as the best of her life. Writing, as Katie often told her best friend, is cheaper than therapy. Pushing the Limits is her debut novel.
This emotional, riveting debut is head and shoulders above your standard angst-ridden Young Adult novel. Echo and Noah both have suffered family tragedy and a suitcase full of other issues that should mean they steer well clear of each other – but true love is never rational, easy or (on the surface) the right thing. A brave and powerful novel about loss, change and growing up, but most of all love.
Dramatische Liebe, schicksalhafte Wendung: Eine Nacht, ein mysterioser Unfall, und die einst beliebte Echo Emerson ist plotzlich die Auenseiterin, uber die der Schulhof tuschelt. Ein Schicksal, das Noah schon lange kennt: Der typische Troublemaker wandert von einer Pflegefamilie zur nachsten, seit er seine Eltern verlor. Um seinen jungeren Brudern diese "e;Karriere"e; zu ersparen, muss er jedoch an seine Therapie-Akten kommen, genau wie Echo. Schon bald verbindet die beiden Auenseiter mehr als ihr Schicksal, viel mehr. Eine knisternde Lovestory, die lange nachklingt, heftig und originell, und ein Protagonist zum Schwrmen!In einer frheren Ausgabe unter dem Titel "e;Noah und Echo. Liebe kennt keine Grenzen"e; erschienen.
