Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

Back Cover: Caleb Becker spent the past year in juvenille detention. Maggie Armstrong spent the past year in hospitals and physical therapy. Two teens who were scarred one fateful night are going to have to face their greatest challenge yet- meeting up with each other again. This was a relaly good book. It was full of emotions and difficult things to cope with. I like stories like this were two characters tell their side and they intertwine with each other. When I found out that not Caleb, but Leah was the one who hit Maggie it was like what! Def did not expect that. And how they eventually just connected with each other. But when Mrs. Reynolds dies, it's like everything changes. But Maggie learns to love who she is now that's she's different. And Caleb is tired or pretending with his family, so he leaves Paradise. I felt really emotional at the end! I kinda wanted to cry too. It was very well written.
