|Updated covers for Slammed and Point of Retreat from Atria Books|
Hoover's tale about teenage girl named Layken who moves from Texas to Michigan after her father sudden death. Layken, along with her mother and little brother, deal their recent loss and adjusting to a new town and high school. Soon after moving in her her new house, Lake meets her dashing neighbor, Will. There's instant attraction between the two and Slammed follows them along while they overcome obstacles thats keeps them apart. Point of Retreat is the sequel to Slammed and tells the story from Will's point of view. Point of Retreat was also a very emotional read and contiues Will and Lake's story after the emotional events after Slammed.
Slammed was a heart-wrenching, emotional and uplifting read. Slammed is one of the very few books that has left me a complete emotional mess. When I tell you that you will need a box of Kleenex next to you when you read this is not a lie. I had to put down the book a few times because I was just crying to much. I went from laughing, crying, falling in love and crying again. It's one of those books that cannot put down after you start. And when you are finished, the story will keep replaying in your head. Lake, Will and the rest of the characters in Slammed will definitely carve out a place in your heart. This series is worth more than five stars and is a book that everyone would love.
If you've recently read Katie McGerry's Pushing the Limits and looking for another emotional, mature YA reads then you MUST read this book. Pushing the Limits had me crying but it did not compare to the amount of tears I shed while reading Slammed and it's sequel, Point of Retreat.
Atria Books will re-release the eBook verions of Slammed and Point of Retreat and paperback editions should be released sometime in the fall.
