  1. Final rating 4 5 stars Thank you, Lila Words are still hard, but I find the energy to ask, For what For helping me find me again You were always in there You just weren t looking in the right place I pause He s not the only one who rediscovered himself this weekend Neither one of us were True, he agrees and gathers me closer But we figured it out I have to say that i remember very well story about Noah and Echo, but i am ashamed to say that i remember nothing of other characters, except those wi [...]


  2. 3.5 StarsI just find it so sweet and old fashioned to fall in love over letter writing Crossing the Line was a swoony short read that had me ooohing and awwing by the end Love Katie McGarry s writing We know Lila best as Echo s long suffering and loyal friend She s a peach in Pushing the Limits, and no one could ask for a better girl to have your back What we didn t know in Pushing the Limits is that Lila met a boy, Lincoln, at Aires funeral and made a lasting connection Bonded together over gri [...]


  3. This is a great little novella featuring Lila, Echo s best friend from Pushing the Limits one of my absolutely FAVOURITE reads last year I really liked Lila in PTL, and I loved this opportunity to get to know her a bit better She seems very immature at times, but that s part of her charm, and her starting to grow up and be strong is a big part of her story Lincoln is a gorgeous character, with some major family issues of his own, and his and Lila s history, and their story together, is absolutel [...]


  4. We met Lila in Pushing the Limits She is Echo s best friend Lincoln and Lila meet at Echo s brother s Aries funeral Although that is the only time they have met over the last two years, they have kept in touch through letters A few letters every week They know each other in a way no one else does, and they connect with each other on a bigger level We became friends through the letters, bonded by a shared dream of a college in another state, and then I fell for her Could she have also fallen for [...]


  5. Is it weird that I feel close to you even though you re hundreds of miles away and we ve only met once I hope not I m glad that you re in my life I rarely read books which are less than 200 pages, but I thought I have to read this one, because Pushing the Limits was so good And I am glad I did, I really enjoyed the story Although Lila did not leave a big impression on me in Pushing the Limits I liked her in this story It was really easy to connect to both of the charterers from the very first pa [...]


  6. Just in case you didn t know, Katie McGarry is one of my favorite authors.What makes her stands out from other writers, in my opinion, is her ability to put feelings into words in such a poetic way but without over doing it.While reading her novels I had never had a feeling I was reading something new but her writing style was always so beautiful, it presented the story in a different, better way.In this novella, I have to admit, I felt the lack of McGarry s usual writing style It was still good [...]


  7. This book is for everyone who adored Lila in Pushing the Limits She was Echo s bff, and l loved how she stood by her side That she was someone Echo could count on, and at times pushed Echo to be a better person So while I didn t know too much about Lila, I definitely liked what I did know about her And I thought everything was fine and wonderful in her life, but we got to see that that wasn t necessarily the case.I think sometimes things we don t like happen so we can appreciate the good Like, c [...]


  8. It s so weird how you can read a novel with 400 pages and not feel a thing, not even a glimpse of love nor happiness and than here I read a novella of 63 pages and BOOOOOOOOOM goosebumps, racing heart, blushing and on an on I ramble I LOVE KATIE MCGARRY as you all might have guessed She gets me, well I m pretty sure she gets us all, but its like I look forward to reading her books and I know for sure I wont be disappointed no matter where the cliff goes and what she aims to write about I m alway [...]


  9. Katie McGarry can do no wrong Is it weird that I feel so close to you even though you re hundreds of miles away and we ve only met once I hope not I m glad that you re in my life.I really enjoyed Crossing the Line, but not as much as Pushing the Limits, Dare You To, or Crash Into You First off, it s TOO short And second, I didn t love Lincoln as much as I loved Noah, Ryan, and Isaiah Which of course would be because this novella was TOO SHORT And it was predictable too not just about their relat [...]




  10. 2.5 stars I love Pushing the Limits and Dare to You, so I was a bit disappointed after reading this novella It was cute, but I was hoping to read about Lincoln and Lila falling in love through letters or be emotionally involved in them finally meeting face to face again.Instead, I was reading about this ridiculous plot about a grown girl who can t spend a night by herself and the silly drama behind it all, as well as the stupid lie that I could care less about because it came from nowhere and [...]


  11. I haven t read the first in this series, but I don t think I ve missed out on much with this one This is a fantastic novella in its own right and can easily be read independently.I started to care about the characters within the first few paragraphs and really felt for them That gave this short story quite a punch and made it stand out.I loved how everything wasn t hunky dory straight away, it made it real Real life isn t perfect I loved how there was conflict, rage, love, revenge A bit of ever [...]


  12. This novella was so sweet Lila was one of my favorite characters in Pushing the Limits She was a fierce friend and supported Echo through everything even if it meant loosing social status or other people It was really good to see a story about her and Lincoln is a damn great guy Together they re the cutest couple But still the best part was the little glimpse of Echo and Noah If you read PtL you re going to love this one If you didn t read it well, what the hell are you waiting for


  13. Two teens who became pen pals after tragedy in their lives connected them, spend twenty four crazy hours together, causing them to completely reassess their plans for the future and their unexpected feelings for each other.I believe i ll find a new guy here, a new guy to sleep with A new guy that will pain me to death and makes my heart melts


  14. It s funny how in Pushing the Limits Lila seemed so strong and sure of everything and here we get to see her vulnerable side I think I liked her fierceness but it was nice to see her get it back, to find who she really is and to go with it.I absolutely loved Lincoln He was amazing and in a very short amount of time, was swoon worthy I am hoping they get their own story somewhere along the way.


  15. I loved this sweet little novella about Lila and Lincoln My only complaint is that it was too short I want Plus, it ended at 83%, which was annoying because I thought I had time with these two.


  16. Lila and Lincoln I ship it This was a cute and really short read with a small plot line going on besides the romance which was nice.


  17. Serinin ilk kitab n severek okumu tum Bu ay devam ederim diye planl yordum, bu y zden bir ara kitapla a lay m dedim Ama bug n devam etmeyece im Can m bu t rde okumak istemiyor.Seriye ba ka g n d nmek zere ka yorum.


  18. 3.5 letter stars Crossing the line is novella in Pushing the limits series The review of the first book Pushing the limits you can find here.This cute short story follows right behind the book one Lila, Echo s best friend, is alone in her house to prepare herself for living alone once she goes to the University of Florida in the fall She had a fight with her pen pal, Lincoln, because he lied to her about graduating Not wanting for his friend, for who he had stronger feelings, to hate him, Lincol [...]


  19. This was such a sweet story, I really wish the author had turned this into a full novel I absolutely love when characters write letters to each other In this day and age of email and texting it is so old fashioned and romantic Lila is Echo s best friend, who we met in Pushing the Limits Lincoln and Lila meet at Echo s brother s funeral and although it was only that once time, they keep in touch through letters for the next two years They tell each other things that either of them shares with any [...]


  20. I loved it, but then again I think Katie McGarry can do on wrong You know how people are about KA well that s how I am about KM I want I love the way she writes and her stories are just absolutely wonderful I can t wait for her next two books that I know are coming out This was a fantastic short story, great read2 Thumbs up



  21. If you have been following my reviews then you know how big a fan of Katie McGarry I am She is one of the most talented authors out there and her stories not only suck you in but once you are finished, they stay with you after I read a lot of books and sometimes when you try to think back about them they tend to blend and converge, this is only natural.But this is not the case with the books written by McGarry I can still remember Pushing the Limits and Dare You To as if I read them yesterday An [...]


  22. I LOVED Pushing the Limits Like really loooved it It was an emotional rollercoaster and despite a ton of freaking sensations overwhelming me, I devoured every word from that book.Lila was one of my favorite secondary characters from Pushing the Limits and she earnedmy respect when she didn t let go of Echo, in spite of loosing some other friendships She s strong, caring and adorable Plus, she s mature and intelligent If it wasn t for Noah, Echo would need me she would still be insecure, she wou [...]


  23. I loved Pushing the Limits so when I heard Katie McGarry was writing a short story about Echo s best friend I knew I had to read it I also knew it would be good, but I never expected to love it this much.Lila and Lincoln have been writing each other lettters for 2 years now and this book describes what happens when they become than friends At first I felt like I was missing a bit of their backgorund, because we didn t got to read about their letters and how they became friends, but soon I was c [...]


  24. Creo que los libros que son cortos funcionaba mejor en mi cuando el transcurso en el libro tambi n es corto, porque as me creo m s la historia Lo que puedo decir de Crossing the line es que es bastante tranquila, pero del tranquilo bueno, donde la gran mentira no es una gran mentira, lo es solamente para la insegura a morir de Lila Que mujer m s exasperante es Lila, me fue sumamente desagradable leer los POV de ella, era un sufrimiento cada vez que lo hac a, era inseguridad tras inseguridad y ad [...]


  25. We met Lila in Pushing the Limits, remember her she was the friend that stood by Echo But what we didn t know is that she spent the last two years writing Lincoln A boy that she met at Aries funeral A boy that lost his brother and alongside Echo s while away at war.They shared a connection that day He opened up to her like he couldn t bring himself to do with anyone else And they stayed in touch Lila has been on and off with Stephen, but her heart is with a boy that only knows her through the le [...]


  26. And then I wonder what it would be like if he really was falling for me, because Lincoln in real life is a million times intense than Lincoln in letters and I m seriously falling for him Me decepcion un poco Si bien mantiene un poco el estilo que ven a de Pushing the Limits, creo que la historia promet a mucho mas de lo que en realidad fue.Siento que me qued con ganas de mucho mas Entiendo que era una historia corta, pero como que realmente no entend el fin de la misma Pod a haber sido otra cos [...]


  27. 4.25 starsThis has to be one of the better novellas I ve ever read The story wasn t rushed It was short, yes and I hope to hear from them I wasn t a huge fan of Lila in the beginning of Echo s story She seemed fake, but my opinion of her changed throughout Echo s book.
