Novella Review: Crossing the line by Katie McGarry


AUTHOR: Katie McGarry
PUBLISHER: Harlequin Teen
PAGES:
STAND ALONE/SERIES: Novella too Pushing the limits
SOURCE: Bought (ebook only)
OUTLINE:

In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love…

Lila McCormick, Echo's best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves

MY THOUGHTS
One funeral, 2 years writing letters, 10 hour long trip to see the girl of his dreams. This could sum up Katie McGarry's novella Crossing the Line in one sentence, but I would be depriving you of so much more. If you thought her book Pushing the Limits was awesome and a rollercoaster of feels. (like stated in my review of it) Then you should see what she can do with less then a hundred pages. Reading her Novellas (Crossing the Line and Red at Night) made her one of my fave contemp authors, and I will definitely have her on my auto-buy list.

Normally, I don't read novellas (unless they're related to books I REALLY loved). Now I'm thinking I should give them a better chance. Maybe, there will be that shred of information I longed for that the book its self didn't have.

Lincoln and Lila's connection was real to me, and if you can get me to feel that in only 60 pages or less it means something. They genuinely seemed to care for one another only having met the one time. The little snippets at the beginning of each chapter proved that they could talk through letters about nothing, anything, and everything.

When Lincoln couldn't stand it at home any longer, and he realized he had messed up he decided to go to Lila, the one person who seemed to understand him, but getting Lila to forgive him would be a challenge.
