That Night by Amy Giles
"This is how you do a romance, ladies and gents. Young adult romance is a pretty rocky genre, often full of problematic messages, controlling, abusive partners, and generally unhealthy relationships that are portrayed as positive. Not here. That Night" Read more of this review »
Now Is Everything by Amy Giles
"Honestly, just wow.


This book was written in so much detail. It shows the actual effects of abuse.
It was extremely powerful and heart breaking with a perfect amount of light at the end of a very dark and twisted tunnel.
Do not sleep on this book, it" Read more of this review »
Amy Giles and 3 other people liked Beulah Jenifer's review of That Night:
That Night by Amy Giles
"A must read book! It's about surviving after tragedy, living after accident. The life of Jess and Lucas is painful and tough. How both confront the painful life by being together despite mentally, emotionally crushed is penned in absolute brilliance."

“Life is either about moving forward or looking back. We’re moving forward again, but we’ll never forget what’s back there behind us.”
Amy Giles, That Night

“We live our lives like survivors, weaker in some places, but stronger in others. Scarred, but healing.”
Amy Giles, That Night

“Maybe I understand now why we stay here on our fragile sandbar, why we make ourselves vulnerable.
Because we're resilient. We rebuild. It's what we do.”
Amy Giles, That Night
