    3.5 - 4 ?'s This is my first book by Katie McGarry and I enjoyed it for the most part. There's some hard subject matter for both Jesse and Scarlett and then throw in a curse and some psychic mumbo jumbo and you have an intricate story line. Jesse and Scarlett grew up together...

    Since KM is one of my favorite YA authors, I went into this one completely oblivious. Had I known about the abuse situation, I might have skipped it. Having said that, and as heartbreaking as it was, I don't regret the experience. The cycle of abuse Scarlett and her family endures is r...

    Oh, how I love Katie McGarry. In anyone else's hands, I think this book would have been overdramatic and overwrought, but McGarry draws me in to her characters and makes me relate to them in such intimate ways. She makes sure that the pain in these two lives feels real, and doesn't jus...

    Ok, this book was freaking amazing. I've had great luck with Katie McGarry books in the past, so I didn't really have any expectation that this would be different. Once I started the book, I was sucked into Scarlett and Jesse's story. I loved seeing them as kids, and their friendsh...

    Welp. This was a bit of a struggle. I have read and loved all of Katie?s other books, so I was all in without really reading the synopsis. That cover made me think it was just the standard mid-level angst she normally writes. I liked Scarlett and Jesse well enough. They have a bo...

    If you love McGarry - this is a must read. Classic McGarry in every way. I was a little concerned towards the end that it was going one way when it JUST COULD NOT - I was like, NO, you can't even do this, kid. But in traditional KMG fashion, it all worked out. Not that these kids h...

    This book fronts as a YA contemporary romance, but it has this delicious undercurrent of magical realism that just takes my breath away. It reminded me of being a kid, when I also felt so tied to the land that I haven?t set foot on again since I was about 13 years old. It?s fun...

    4 STARS! I don't forgive him for leaving a scar on my soul. I don't read a lot of YA anymore, but I'm a total sucker for this kind of Romeo and Juliet/bad boy-good girl story. And I'm happy to report that after a rough start, Only a Breath Apart turned out to be a real winner for me...
