LINES (Greyford High 1)
By Anna B. Doe
Release Date November 23, 2018
This YA book by Anna B. Doe is full of angst. What else would you expect from a story set in HS?!
“We’re like two lost souls. Searching to find something that’s been missing for a while.”
Derek is the typical HS jock who secretly harbours feelings for his childhood crush Amelia. Derek was popular and basically watch his friends make Amelia’s life hell at school without intervening. She carried so much hatred for him.
“Because the line between love and hate is thin, so-fucking-thin. And I love you more than I hate you.”
Amelia kept to herself until a chance encounter with a stranger. The guy ended up becoming her friend which made Derek jealous. He decided enough was enough and made his feelings and intentions known to Amelia.
“You can hate me all you want, little one. I’ll stand in the other side of the line and love you with the same strength and fierceness.”
I enjoyed all the HD drama and angst. The hero and heroine were great and were super sweet together. Oh how I adored Derek when behind closed doors with Amelia. The secondary characters were well written. I’m looking forward to their stories.
The push-pull, love-hate was spot on. What is a YA book without it? I recommend this book if you are looking for an angst filled, hs drama with great characters.
Hockey and rivalry.
Mean girls and friendships.
Old loves and new chances.
One more year of being invisible.
One more year to win it all.
The countdown begins.
Senior year can’t come or end fast enough for Amelia Campbell. For the shy, nerdy girl-next-door that she is, high school is torture and all she wants is for it to be over. Having her heart broken by a popular, womanizing boy all those years ago doesn’t help the matters. Nor does his best friend who still has a habit of mercilessly teasing her. Now, she only has one year left, one year to be invisible before she can move on with her life.
Derek King doesn’t do drama, but his life is all about drama once Maximillian Sanders steps foot into his town, his school, and into Amelia’s life. Max is always around, and he is making her smile again. But the boy who once broke her heart isn’t ready to let her go. Older and wiser, Derek isn’t about to let someone take away what he wants, and he wants Amelia.
She’s set on not believing in him and on not getting her heart broken once again. He is set on showing her wrong.
She says she hates him, but maybe the line between past and present, love and hate is thinner than she ever realized.
