My Review

Push was a really interesting book with an extremely unique concept and plot.As soon as I started reading it,I was hooked.I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and those flashbacks in between chapters made things even better!

Let's start by talking about the characters.Emma,our main protagonist went through some really tough situations but managed to leave everything behind and move into a new apartment,far away from home.She wasn't weakened by everything that happened to her.She manage to become this strong,fierce,feisty and refreshing character that you can't help but connect to and fall in love with from the very first chapters!Her stepfather was just disgusting and I hated what he made her do.It wasn't sexual abuse but the things he put her through made me so angry I actually had to stop reading for a couple of minutes.My frustration and anger reached their boiling point.

Moving on to David.You seriously cannot resist falling in love with him.I personally couldn't and I'm pretty sure that a lot of people who have read this book share the same opinion!The way he treated Emma made me fall in love with him even more...He was so protective of her and from the moment he met her,he shows her love and respect.While I was reading the book,I kept wondering if it's alright to actually like love him that much...Because let me clear something out...He's probably the most mysterious character I've ever read about.And the secrets he hides...I don't know if disturbing and kind of twisted are the right words.I might be exaggerating here but...who knows.

Overall,their relationship felt so right.I connected with them from the moment I started reading the book and I was dying to see what would happen in the end so I HAD TO KEEP READING UNTIL THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO READ.That means the ending arrived pretty quickly.To say it shocked me is an understatement.It was such a heartbreaking cliffhanger.Just thinking about it makes me wanna cry which I kind of did actually.I'm desperate for the sequel!

Moreover,the writing of this book was PHENOMENAL.Claire Wallis is such an amazing and talented author.I really can't wait to read more of her words.The way she wrote really captivated me and captured my attention.It made everything more real and mysterious.Especially those flashbacks.They added an edge to the mystery that surrounded David.I think without those flashbacks,the book wouldn't be the same.Push is told mainly by Emma's perspective but there were some chapters where we got to experience things through David.Plus,the flashbacks were told in some other peoples' POVs.

Last thing I want to talk about is that Push was a roller coaster of emotions.Literally.You can't even understand what you're feeling one moment,and then the next a new emotion takes over.If that makes any sense.Highly recommend Push...but seriously.You have to be emotionally ready and expect EVERYTHING before you start reading it!!!

About the Author
