My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I’d been hoping that once I’d arrived on Crestwood’s campus, the nightmare that I’ve been having would go away. It hasn’t.
I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I’m grounded…sane. I look for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he’s near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you’re thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would be…if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I’m the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But get this, for some reason every time I turn around he’s there, barging into my life.
What is the secret that he’s keeping from me? I’m hoping that it’s anything but what I suspect: that he’s not exactly normal…and neither am I. So, maybe Crestwood won’t be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I’ve been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.
After reading some heart-breaking books, I just needed to take a moment from my book list and read something that was sweet and innocent. Which lead me to pick a YA Romance, a book with the innocence of first love.
Inescapable means that something is unable to be avoided or denied.
But how does the title tie into the book? Is it talking about fate? Can we not avoid fate? What is the author trying to hint before you open the cover and start reading?
In this book I read about a girl who was fighting to learn about who she was and what it meant to the people around her. I read about a girl who was stubborn and headstrong. She was changing into something she didn't understand. Her world was turn upside down and she didn't know who to trust.
