Review: Stay by Deb Caletti




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 Thought
This is one book that was written so well. The emotion flowed in every words. In the beginning, I even thought this book would make my eyes teary . I could feel what she felt through every words that she used. When she saw Christian for the first time, the first date, or even when her summer trip with her father. It seemed so real. I also liked all the terms that she used to describe something. 

No need to wonder why Clara was my favorite characters. She was a tough and deep girl. She could handle everything well. Whereas all things which hit her were so hurt. She was fragile at first but did not let herself wallowing. I awed with her decision to move on however it was the most bothersome way. Clara's father was also a great character. The way he treasured Clara was so wonderful. I adored such family relation. Christian was nice. Sweet enough till something changed him. I felt a bit pain when it getting worse.  But I still got why Clara still have something remained for him. I learnt one thing from her. 

At first I was little bit confused with its plot. I must get used to when it split into past and present. Although the switching ran well, I kept searching its bond. Because Clara was described differently there. It was nice when the link was finally revealed. Unfortunately the ending itself was not something that I expected. I dug for something distinctive

This is the first book of Deb Calettin that I read. I think I want to read another book of hers.

I received this eGalley in exchange an honest review.
