This is such an amazing book. Echols really brought the characters to life in such a way it made them so believable I almost forgot they were fictional characters! The plot was great and not predictable at all. I especially loved the way the story dealt with the relationships Meg had with her parents and friends as well as with John. The ending was great too! I will definitely be reading more of her books.

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
From Amazon: High school senior Meg revels in being a rebel. She sports choppy blue hair, and tight t-shirts, cuts class, and is often found where she's not supposed to be. Like hanging out on a railroad-tracks-covered bridge that's off-limits to trespassers. When she and her friends are busted for trespassing and underage drinking, she's sentenced to spend her spring break riding along with a rookie police officer on his nightshift patrol. Compounding the punishment is the fact that the cop, John After, is only two years older than Meg, and a former classmate to boot. He thinks he has Meg's number and has nothing but contempt for her childish rebellion. Meg in turn has nothing but contempt for Officer After's straight-laced, by-the-book attitude. But Meg has her reasons for lashing out, and John has his reasons for his need for law and order. And they're about to discover that they have a lot more in common than either one of them could have dreamed...
