REVIEW for Crush by Eve Ainsworth
AUTHOR: Eve Ainsworth
This story is scary - because it felt all too real. While it is a work of fiction, the author created a dark, scary story of a young girl who is naive and unhappy in her family life who somehow is drawn to a young boy who is majorly screwed up.
As the story develops and we see the dynamics between Anna and Will, as well as the backstories of both of these characters, we start to get a better picture of why/how Anna and Will became the people they are, as well as why they are attracted to each other and it is SCARY.
The book does a good job of showing us how we are a product of our environments - basically from every experience we have lived from day 1.
I did struggle with some of the English terms in this story as it is British - some references were beyond me, but overall, this story was engrossing and all too real.
I could not believe how quickly I finished this book.
