"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.
So wrong for each other...and yet so right.
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
Well, I got this for review and I couldn't wait to read this! Weeks pasts by and I kept seeing bloggers posting reviews of this book. All of them were 5 stars reviews. I knew I was going to love the book.
They started off talking about Echos's and Noah's problem. Echos almost got killed by her mom but she still believes that her mom didn't mean to. Noah's mom and dad got killed in a fire. He's trying to get his brothers back. They both go to Mrs. Collins for help. They met each other because Echos have to tutor Noah. Noah wanted to get his brothers back so he needs to get good grades and go to college.
Echos and Noah started liking each other. They both have problems in their lives. Echos feels like he's the only one who understands her. You knew they had the connection in the beginning. I don't know what to say about their relationship. It's just any normal couple at high school.
Let's talk about Luke. Luke was Echos's boyfriend before her mother tried to kill her. He was probably the perfect boyfriend. He's the popular guy. Before this all happened Echos was popular too. Luke kept pushing her to have sex, but Echos was never ready. Luke just kept pushing her. I personally think Luke needs help too. I didn't like him from the beginning.
Echos always thought it was her dad's and step mom's fault that made her mom fall apart. The way her dad and step mom talked made me believe they did. If both of them comfort her after the accident maybe she wouldn't be so broken inside.
Noah thought that Tyler and S's foster parents were hurting them. He wanted to be the best brother they'll ever have. He would do anything for them.
In the end, everyone was wrong. The ending was perfect. I don't know what else to tell you guys because this book is amazing! You guys probably know that everyone love this book. I would recommend everyone reading this book! I read this book in one day!
