One Moment

One MomentGoodreads Description:    This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget.

Maggie remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party. She remembers climbing the trail with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can’t she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below–dead?

As Maggie’s memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding?

The latest novel from the author of The Tension of OppositesOne Moment is a mysterious, searing look at how an instant can change everything you believe about the world around you.

My Thoughts:

-    The people in this book are messed up!

-    I wasn't expecting all the mystery and suspense. It kept me turning pages!

-    I kinda figured out what was going on from the very beginning. It wasn't that hard to piece together, so it drove me a little nuts that Maggie took so long to realize what was happening.

-    There was a lot of drinking in the book. The characters were drunk a lot. There was also some heavy profanity. It wasn't frequent, but there were a few f'-bombs. 

-    I enjoyed the book, but it also made me angry. I just want to smack all the characters upside the head!

-    Emotions run high while reading stuff like this, and it is hard to put into words.
