One Small Thing deals with loss, love, and heartache
Beth is dealt with the loss of her sister and on top of that her parents become so over protective it is almost too much for her to bare. She is barely living when a new boy comes into her life, Chase.
She soon realizes Chase needs to be her little secret. How can she balance life, her overbearing parents and Chase?
This story had its sad and heartbreaking moments, as well as moments of wondering how Beth is going to deal with it all. It seemed she was being crushed by her parents even though they just wanted to protect her. I could definitely feel her frustration at times. Not just with her parents, but with her friends as well.
I felt for Chase. Everyday must have been a struggle for him, so from the beginning I really liked him.
It was a lovely read with an ending I was satisfied with.
