REVIEW: Back of Beyond

Dina Martin and Nicholas Riley are total opposites. She's the good girl with the perfect grades and he's the bad boy with a reputation. Growing up together with close family ties, they have been at war as long as they can remember. When the unthinkable happens, neither of them wants it. Set in a small town at the turn of the millennium, this story is about family and friendship, the love of music and how sometimes who you don't want, is exactly who you need.

I really enjoyed this story. It's a sweet and complicated high school love story that had me falling in love with it. When I first started reading it, it was a bit difficult to get used to being told in the third person, because not many books are written this way, I just come across many of them and that in no way hindered my love for the story. Once I got used to the story, I absolutely fell in love with it. This story just flowed off its pages and I kept turning each page to find out more about the characters. The characters in the story were phenomenal and I made a real connection with them. Their lives felt so real. The story-line was awesome. I was able to have a clear picture in my mind of what the author was trying to share with me. This is a story that teens, ya, and adults can relate to and I highly recommend it.

  1. Thank you, Jenny! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing this story. It was so much fun and I had a 90's soundtrack in my ear the whole time.
