Poor, deliciously disturbed Chase spends his entire life hiding from his painful past by keeping his head down and trying to go unnoticed. His parents died in a horrible accident when he was younger leaving him with scars both mental and physical. Beautiful and popular Evie is keeping her own secrets hidden while putting on a brave face for the world. Her home life is a mess and her "perfect" boyfriend, Shane, is not as wonderful as everyone thinks. He's actually quite cruel and lately he's been getting worse.
When Evie and Chase are forced to work together on a school project they discover that they have a lot in common and an intense attraction quickly forms between them. They find that they are able to fill the emptiness in each others heart's and heal each other's emotional pain. Unfortunately, life is complicated and at the moment Evie still has a boyfriend who honestly frightens her most of the time. She has no idea what he would do if she tried to break up with him, but for her own happiness and safety, she has no choice.
They will quickly discover exactly how dangerous Shane truly is. A note. A party. A prank gone horribly wrong. As their world shatters, dear reader, so will yours. What you think you're thinking isn't what you're really thinking. Yes, Evie and Chase's story will keep you on the edge of your seat. It will gently caress, wrap and embrace you...and then throw you off of a cliff!
Between These Lines is a great book. It's got romance, drama, surprises and of course, Jennifer Murgia's gorgeous writing. She got me. She really got me. Wow. Good stuff.
Murgia, known for smart and complicated loves stories (Angel Star and Lemniscate), has done it again with Between These Lines. My favorite part of this well-crafted novel is that I never knew what would happen as I turned pages. Murgia led me down an innocent path and then shocked me with depth and darkness.
Readers will be impressed with Evie and Chase. He's not the typical dark and dangerous brooder--he's got the soul of a poet and he has worshipped Evie from afar for months. He's my kind of hero. And Evie never apologizes for being intelligent, a quality I admire in female main characters. She's smart, talented, and beautiful, but also flawed and hurt by her messed-up family. All is not as it seems with Miss Evie, and readers will learn a lot about handling tough issues from her.
I'd highly recommend this book for teens who enjoy suspense with their love stories. Fans of Simone Elkeles and Tammara Webber will adore Murgia, who understands that first love is heady and complicated and full of surprises.
One assignment forces Evie and Chase, despite the labels their friends and families and teachers adhere to them, to evaluate who they truly are, how their own lives differ and mirror each others. There's only one thing in the way of their discoveries - Shane, school king, ringleader and Evie's boyfriend.
In her latest novel, Between These Lines, Jennifer Murgia captures the tension and intensity of high school relationships - relationships between teens and their families, between teens and their friends and between teens and their romantic interests. Murgia's writing always has me yearning for the next page and the one after that. This fast paced novel laced with love, hate, fear and hope is as addicting as a bowl of M&M's. Once you start reading, you will not want to, nor will you be able to stop.
