This started off as a good idea but it ended badly. So I believe this started off as a part of Pushing the Limits or an actual book but then the author was like forgot it and stop writing and whatever was left put it together and put a price in it! I was all for it and then it was over. Did they even end up in Florida together? What about his family life did it get better? Did he ever graduate?

As a reader she wants us to believe that Lila has been written Lincoln for 2 yrs but in Pushing the Limits not once was this brought up so it made reading this a little unbelievable.

I read Crossing the Line several months after Pushing the Limits, so I couldn't remember much about Lila. And after finishing it, I don't think you even need to read it to understand what's going on. Yes, this novella takes place afterward, but it's not really effected by any of the previous events. It still alternates POV, but this time it's Lila and Lincoln. The tone is very different though. It's much lighter, and actually wanders into ridiculous territory. Really. This novella is beyond silly, and I don't mean funny. Lila is home alone for a week while her family is on vacation, and she's just had a fight with her penpal, Lincoln. Of course, he shows up on her doorstep with flowers to beg forgiveness, and ends up spending a few nights there because she's scared to be alone. Needless to say, they kiss and make up and live happily ever after. Cute, but everything in between is lame.

My first problem with Crossing the Line was Lila and Lincoln's fight. It has to be one of the dumbest ones I've read. Lila takes what happened way too personally and blows it out of proportion. She acts like it's the end of the world, or like Lincoln ruined her life when it has nothing to do with her. My second problem was Lila. I know it's not my place to judge someone else's fears, but Lila's fear of being home alone is beyond ridiculous. I get scared too, but I deal with it. Her mom even had to leave her brightly colored post-its all over the house to remind Lila to do the littlest things because at 18, she's never been home alone...ever. That is hard to believe. Her fear may have felt more believable if we had actually gotten to know her better, and seen that this fear is based on something. I just didn't know her well enough to care.

The "plot" of Crossing the Line was also problematic.

Lila has been afraid of a lot of things in her life, but never of being honest with him. Lincoln, the guy she's met only once, yet somehow ended up writing to him steadily for the past two years. But it all comes to a crashing halt, because Lila found out he lied to her big time.

Lincoln's family is a mess, it has been for a while now and he's reached the breaking point. Screwing up things with Lila, sends him running to her and leaving everything behind. There has to be a way to earn her forgiveness.

When Lila and Lincoln meet they do more than forgive each other. In the course of a few hours they realize what they have is so much bigger than they ever imagined. Lila's belief in him pushes Lincoln to try and do better in his life, to fix his mess. And fix it he will because Lila is waiting on the other side. In turn, Lincoln is more than willing to be Lila's pillar whenever her resolve wavers--and it wavers often. He's the one to remind her of her strength and courage when she thinks she has none. These two couldn't be more perfect for each other!

What I love about McGarry's work is that in just a few paragraphs the characters come alive. They pop off the page with their...their realness. I can't even describe it! lol They are flawed, brutally honest, beautiful in their vulnerability, and the relationships they make with others are soul deep. I wish I'd had these books during my teen years, because these coming of age stories are exceptional.

I urge you to pick up this little novella! Crossing the Line is the perfect little treat to tide us over until we can get out hands on Dare You To, and I know that one's going to be as life-altering as the first.

Let me preface that saying I went right from reading Pushing the Limits to reading this one. Fair warning, there may be spoilers for PTL. I may not be able to help myself. If that becomes an issue, I am sorry.

So, Lincoln. Why is it that Lila has been writing to Lincoln since Aires died, and yet, we never heard mention of him at all in Pushing the Limits? How does that happen. I wish I would have gotten to see glimpses of him in the previous book, and I hope in the future books, we get to get to see more of him. Because, based on how he is written, he sounds like a real hottie. Talk, dark and muscular.

And on that note, why are teen guys so well muscled? Has anyone thought of that? Some of our favorite YA novels have guys in them described as well muscled and hot abs and things like that. None of the guys I went to high school with looked anything like that... Just saying.

Considering how little page real estate there was for Lincoln, I love the way the character was developed. The relationship between Lincoln and Lila develops almost naturally and by the end of the story, it felt like they had always been together and they were just meant to be. I really hope that the road blocks in their lives resolve and that they end up together. Further, I hope I get to find out.

If you have read the rest of this series and are not so patiently waiting for TMO to come out, and haven't read Crossing the Line, pick it up and give it a read. It will go far too fast, but for that little while, you will feel connected again.
