Going Forward by K.M. Galvin Publication Date: September 8, 2014 Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
SynopsisYou may think you know me. The truth is I wasn’t always a good person. Truth is I played in the dark. I did a lot of things I’m not proud of. Did a lot of things that many people should hate me for, things that you may hate me for. But one thing I know for sure is that sometimes in order to go forward, we have to go back. And so…this is my story. When Emily’s parents died in a car crash the night of her birthday she thought nothing could hurt worse. She was wrong. Choice. That’s the difference. They didn’t choose to abandon her, but her friends, brother, and the one person she loved more than life all chose to turn their backs. So Emily made the decision to shut off from life. She chose to find comfort in anyone who’d have her, anything she could drink, any drug that would give her just a moment of oblivion. But all that changes with two pink lines. Seventeen and pregnant? Not how she planned on finishing out her senior year. Jason and Declan both coming home? Not the reunion she was prepared for. But life doesn’t wait for you, and so you’re only option is to go forward.
I really loved this book because I understood how Emily felt, although I didn't agree with a lot of the things that she did I could understand why she did them. Emily lost her parents in a wreak and also in the process she lost the only two people who meant anything to her. Tragic strikes Emily and she realizes that the way she was living was not going to cut it so she changed her life and the way that she looked at things. This was a wonderful book about realizing what you are worth and that not all tragic things that happen to you makes you have to spiral out of control. I thought that I was going to be on the fence about this book but from the very beginning I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. I'm glad that I got to read this now I wanna read the next book in this series and see what happens with Jason
