it was amazing

Oh my freaking gosh guys, have you ever had a book that has literally made your heart stop? You couldn’t put it down because you HAD to know what happened next… and when it was over you mourned inside? Yeah, that was THIS book. Eva is AMAZING, hands down freaking amazing. This book is so controversial and I believe she wrote it with such grace that even though you may not agree you can’t help but like it and be sucked in. If you feel very uncomfortable about teacher and student relationships them I wouldn’t recommend you reading this book, but if you have an open mind and are willing to try anything once than I would DEFINITELY READ IT.

Isabel is a High School freshman who is popular and is apart of the swim team. She could basically talk to any guy her age that she would like but the first day of swim practice she sets her sights on Couch Stevens. Couch Stevens is married with kids and Isabel knows that but she can’t help that they have an instant connection. Soon car rides turn into more and a relationship forms between Isabel and “Tom” (Couch Stevens). They write letters to each other, and sneak around to see each other. Unlike other teacher/student relationships I’ve heard of Tom genuinely likes Isabel and he doesn’t pressure her into sex or any thing else she doesn’t want to do. I really respect him for that. As time goes on more complications and challenges seem to arise and the anticipation of them getting caught DROVE ME CRAZY.

I cannot tell you how it ends because you would hate me for spoiling for you, but it didn’t end how I thought it would. Every page is so delectable and you can’t help but cherish this book. I will read ANYTHING Eva publishes from now on. Thanks Eva for an amazing escape, I can’t wait to re-visit your world of fiction again.
