This is such a unique idea for a story! Amanda writes with such emotion and her characters are always deep and have characteristics that are so easy to relate to, even if we aren't in their exact situation. She makes it so that the rumor snowballing is so easy to believe and the circumstances leading up to it are a perfect storm. It really is a picture of what can happen when you tell a lie, which I know I did some as a teenager, some of almost as epic proportions to letting people believe that Carter raped Sam, although mine didn't quite have the same repurcusions as letting people believe that a guy raped you when he didn't, no matter what a jerk he might be.
I guess that I can understand how Sam let it go on, but I just kept crossing my fingers that she would own up and time after time, she didn't. But I really think that she should've seen what would happen to her relationship with Nick if she didn't tell the truth right away but did later.
Speaking of Nick, I really enjoyed their friendship at the beginning. It seemed so much fun and I like to see that sort of comradery with guys and girls without it being romantic. But I guess I saw it coming because of the way she said she started thinking of him differently. Though I have to say friends to a relationship really can work out beautifully in real life when done right, because that is how me and my husband were.
I want to applaud Ms. Grace for letting the ending play out the way it did. I think that given the nature of the book that it really couldn't have happened any other way.

After reading Amanda Grace's emotional and gut wrenching But I Love Him, I was dying to read more by her. Therefore, when the chance finally came up to read In Too Deep, I dove right in, curious to see how this one would live up to her previous release. While I didn't enjoy it as much as But I Love Him, I was still fully fascinated as well as taken aback by the story of how one lie can change everything. This book had me hooked from the first page to the last, and best of all, the Amanda's prose once again provoked many feelings out of me.

In Too Deep had an interesting premise, and after reading the summary, I was curious to see how Amanda would present it. As everyone knows, lies are bad, but in Sam's case her lie, or really, her willingness to go along with the lie, is ESPECIALLY bad. It was insane to see just how far everything could spin out of control. Constantly, all I wanted was to yell at Sam to tell the truth, to make everything right, especially when it was causing pain to not only the "bad" people in the book as well as the "good" people. However, I feel that the message it portrayed was more important than the easy-fix that could have occurred, and that's where the magic in this one occurred.

Sam, as you can probably imagine, was a hard character to like, even in the beginning. As mentioned before, I wanted Sam to tell the truth from the get-go, but at the same, I could feel a little understanding in her need to not do just that. It allowed for a lot of inner dilemmas for Sam, as well as overall growth, to occur. Nick, however, was a character I absolutely adored. He was such a sweet guy, especially to Sam, which made Sam's lie even harder to stomach at times, because her was this AMAZING guy, who was head-over-heels in love with her, and she was screwing it up.

Sam didn't start the rumor.
Through a series of misinterpretations the school is now convinced that Sam was raped by Carter at a party he hosted. This isn't true though. Same didn't know what people were talking about, but accepted their condolences. When she found out the rumor had already taken root. Sam wasn't sure how to proceed. She knew she had to set the story straight, but maybe Carter deserves to be questioned. How good of a person could he be if people believe this lie so readily?

Sam really got herself in deep. I felt her awkwardness and the uncomfortable pressure of having to tell people the truth. It's a hard situation, especially with such an intense subject like rape. There would definitely be people who hated her, because they wouldn't know the whole story. I really thought she should have said something the minute she figured out what was going on. Though, at first I though maybe Carter does deserve this but honestly he doesn't. Even though he wasn't a great guy, rape is a terrible thing to accuse someone of. If they were going to make him out to be a jerk, they should have just called him on the things he did do. There were plenty to choose from. It would have been interesting to have alternating perspective in this novel. I really would have liked to see what was going on in a lot of the characters heads. Nick was such a great guy, and I loved the relationship between Sam and him. They fell together so easily and you could tell the characters clicked. But then you have this horrible guilt/secret/disaster mixed with a bit of bad advice from some vengeful girls and Sam is a mess. This was a great novel about decisions and consequences. Not only Sam's but Carters and their friends. You should definitely check out this novel if you like drama.
