Green-haired Meg goes a step too far when she and her friends go on
the forbidden bridge that is rumored to have been the death site of a
girl and her boyfriend many years ago. As a result, instead of going to
Miami for spring break, Meg must spend a week with Officer After.
Officer After plans to teach Meg the consequences her actions will have
and learn why Meg must rebel. All Meg wants to know, however, is why a
nineteen-year-old decided to be a police officer in their small Alabama
town, rather than getting out. Both John After and Meg will push each
others limits to find out the answers they are searching for.
Going Too Far is a provocative novel that will leave readers wanting more from Jennifer Echols. Told in Megs perspective, Going Too Far
gives readers an inside look into Meg. Readers learn that, far from
Megs rebellious exterior, the real Meg is just an ordinary insecure
teen trying to come to grips with life. John After will immediately be
loved by readers. He is definitely swoon-worthy.
Like Meg, readers will also want to know why John decided not to leave
the small town. Meg and John may seem like an unlikely pairing at
first, but after reading Going Too Far readers will believe that they are a perfect match.
One of the things I liked most about Going Too Far was the
amount of depth Echols put into a novel that is mostly romantic. I
seriously do not think I have read another romantic story with such
depth. Readers will feel their heartstrings pulling while reading this
novel. Its that good! While Going Too Far did have some non-bothersome predictable parts, the parts I did not guess were simply amazing.
If you are looking for a romantic coming-of-age novel or just a good book in general, then I recommend Going Too Far.
