One Moment by Kristina McBride

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?

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this book, and I really felt for Maggie.  Losing your boyfriend would be the hardest thing to deal with, especially when you are there to witness and see it.  I felt like Maggie had to go through a lot, not only losing your boyfriend, but also finding out he was cheating on you with one of your really good friends.  Like seriously what a snake!!!  I mean I'm sorry you are a daredevil and jumped off a cliff and died, but don't cheat on your girlfriend for over a year and not tell her.  

Poor Maggie had to figure it out herself, that her boyfriend was a snake.  And one of your good friends, seriously, hell no I would never talk to you again!!!  And then there's Adam who truly likes Maggie, but Maggie was too stuck on Joey.  I felt like Adam really helped Maggie get through losing Joey.  And in the end, of course, there's a romance.  

I think the only downfall, was the book was kinda shorter than I wanted.  I wanted to know more about Maggie and Adam. 

I recommend this book, I think it does a great job on how to deal with grief, which can be very hard when you are teenager.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
