From Goodreads:

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….

My review:

StayStay by Deb Caletti (Read in August, 2011)

Finished this amazing book in one sitting. Wow. Every person who is not in a relationship should read this book, those of you who are in an unhealthy relationship should read this book! Oh heck, everyone should read this book, there is so much to learn and it might save someone from experiencing the kind of hell the main character Clara went through. It’s a cautionary tale of what one person’s obsession can do to another human being. I loved how Deb Caletti brought light out of darkness. I love how she interwove so many secrets into this book, painful and traumatizing yet also revealing and freeing. Clara gets involved with Christian, a boy who at first seems like the most perfect guy. What unravels is shocking and way realistic. I loved the father, flaws and all, I loved Finn and his family. This is a rich, emotional YA novel. Highly recommend.
