Making Bad Choices - Review

Making Bad Choices
by Rita Stradling

What they say: Culter Fuller came back into my life on the day my mother died, as if losing my mother wasn't bad enough.

We hated each other since childhood. Well, I hated him. He had a very different story. 

When I moved to my dad's house to finish my last semester of high school, we went from bitter enemies to. . . something else. He was suddenly everywhere, occupying my space, determined to pull me into his life, filling me with thoughts I knew were wrong. 

I knew that soon we would cross a line that should never be crossed. 

I knew crossing that line could have very serious consequences; because Culter Fuller wasn't just any irresistible boy, Culter Fuller was my stepbrother. 

But, I was always very bad at making the right choices. 

Recommended 16 + this is a mature YA or New Adult book

I received a copy from YA Bound in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Oh the cute YA drama!!

Making Bad Choices is a sweet, mature YA story about first love, grief and friendship. I read a lot of fantasy stories so sometimes it's nice to focus on a story about ordinary teens and their more normal problems. That being said I'm not sure too many teens will have been through as much as Cassie but I'm also sure many will also being dealing with their own grief.

I may have made it sound like the entire plot is about loss and although this is a big part of the story, it's about so much more. Cassie's and Culter's romance is sweet and charming, whilst their family situation may be particularly unusual.

The secondary characters including Tyler and Cassie's Aunt are really interesting - I'd love to read more about Tyler, who totally charmed me with his street smarts and vulnerability.

I enjoyed the book and felt Rita Stradling tackles the more traumatic issues with grace and sensitivity. 

4 Stars in my Sky!
