Review: Going Too Far

Title: Going Too Far

Author: Jennifer Echols

From Shelfari, "HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO? All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back. John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge -- and over.... "

I really enjoyed reading my first book by Jennifer Echols. The book is about a girl named Meg... the rebel type, you know, the one you were or at least knew in high school. I had a wild time in high school, but never took it as far as Meg.

The other character, John, is the straight-laced guy, bound and determined to teach Meg a lesson. I liked that Echols added an element of romance to Meg's life experiences. Even though the story was predictable at times, it was still pleasurable to read. I enjoyed taking the ride, right alongside the characters. I would recommend this book to high school girls who feel they are in the most exciting, wildest time of their lives OR those who want to remember that feeling.
