Stay by Deb Caletti

Source: Publisher
Clara’s relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it’s almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is—and what he’s willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won’t let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....

The chapters alternate between Clara, when she was with Christian and at the present. Clara is a smart girl, even with what happened with Christian and I could tell that she deeply cared about him and wishes him the best in his future, but wanted a fresh start. I felt every single emotion that Clara was dealing with and more. She has confusion, frustration, and uncertainty about what had happened. Finn was such a sweet boy and I wanted to hug him for all of his understanding and general awesomeness through out the book. Her relationship with Finn felt more natural then the one with Christian from her memories, which served as a great contrast in the books. It is full of so many emotions and Caletti captured all of them amazingly. The plot was stunning and powerful and I just adored this story. I have actually been to most of the places in the book, so I could picture Seattle and Deception Point amazingly by my memories and the description. I think that Caletti tackled a difficult issue with a lot of grace and elegance, while still capture the horror that people face both during and after a relationship. It was believable and complex. I can't wait for more from Deb Caletti and recommend this to fans of Sarah Dessen and Ellen Hopkins.
