I haven t been reading a lot of YA lately, but this one definitely caught my eye The cover is so pretty and it sounded like an emotional read that I wouldn t forget When both of their lives were crashing down, Dillon and Emma found strength and comfort from each other They fell in love deeply and quickly and have spent the past year falling evenin love They know that once they graduate high school, they ll both go to ASU, live in the same dorms, and stay madly in love But when Emma is I haven t been reading a lot of YA lately, but this one definitely caught my eye The cover is so pretty and it sounded like an emotional read that I wouldn t forget When both of their lives were crashing down, Dillon and Emma found strength and comfort from each other They fell in love deeply and quickly and have spent the past year falling evenin love They know that once they graduate high school, they ll both go to ASU, live in the same dorms, and stay madly in love But when Emma is offered an opportunity that could ruin all of those plans, Dillon shows a side of himself Emma has never seen and learns exactly how much she s willing to give of herself for their relationship Wow, so I had no idea this book would be so emotional Heartbreaking Frustrating Realistic So many different feelings while I was reading Emma and Dillon are only 18 year olds in high school yet they are so consumed with their love for each other What I loved about this book, which another review on Goodreads had pointed out, was that we get to meet these characters already madly in love These two met when Emma was in a rough spot in her life and she felt an inexplicable draw to Dillon She had spent a whole year falling for him and they really thought they were the real deal Their relationship was realistic and I understood why Emma was in a tough spot She loved Dillon but also wanted to go off and experience something else she loved after high school While the answer may seem obvious to me as an outside to their relationship put yourself first, girl , I understood her love for Dillon and need to protect save him On to the emotional side, this was a very interesting look at what happens when a relationship turns very dangerous very fast These two loved each other, but they were so attached that they couldn t seem to function without one another This really looked at what it s like for a relationship to change because of how people change over time and how a couple s priorities might not just match up I really felt connected with Emma and how she really had no idea how to deal with the situation she found herself in I am going to say, though, that I would recommend this for older YA readers because of the mature content Overall, Die For You was emotional and dug deep into the unhealthy, dark places teenage relationships can fall into What looks like love isn t always real love and it s hard as a teenager to know what s right and what s wrong when it comes to that love I am definitely glad I picked this book up Was lucky to read an early version of this book and I LOVED IT Writing clever banter is one of Amy Fellner Dominy s strengths, along with getting to the heart of relationships But the best part of this story, is how Dominy shows the deceptively innocent way one can find themselves in a bad situation Love the writing, love the message I can t wait to read it again when it comes out, and have everyone else meet these characters This review and manycan be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionEvery teenage girl should read this book Or maybe just every teenager Sometimes love isn t enough to overcome the negative aspects of a relationship Sometimes you have to put yourself first, even when it s hard, even when it s painful, even when it hurts someone you love Even when it hurts you This is the story of a girl who slowly learns that she can t sacrifice herself her own identity for the sake of someone el This review and manycan be found on

have to put yourself first, even when it s hard, even when it s painful, even when it hurts someone you love Even when it hurts you This is the story of a girl who slowly learns that she can t sacrifice herself her own identity for the sake of someone else, even someone she loves, and that she shouldn t have to The story is told in an honest, brutal, heartbreaking, beautiful way, and it left me breathless I loved the fact that the story ends with a message of hope, but everything isn t tied up with a neat little bow with no far reaching consequences.In short, this book is incredibly powerful and you should read it I give it 5 5 Stars How can love be bad This is a very tough but very good story One that should be told, even if it s hard to look at It s a great example of how love can turn and how what you thought was romantic can actually twist and turn and change on you.In the blink of an eye.The only thing I didn t like is the blame that was passed down at the end But I loved the help information at the end.

Disturbing and page turning, brutal and ultimately hopeful with a few moments of wonderful, smart comic relief , it examines when love is no longer love but rather abuse, and how women and girls historically view themselves as savers and caregivers putting that role over their own well being.I can t recommend it enough and, IMHO, it has one of the best very endings I ve read in recent years The last sentences took my breath away and they stretch back to a scene in ancient Rome.Bravo, Amy.Add DIE FOR YOU to your classroom libraries as well Ummm, ok Sadly, most of my fury is directed towards the many people who review this book Did you just go by what it said in the description There s was an epic love it doesn t actually say that But really, a perfect relationship that devolves into chaos What are you talking about The first chapter has the dude manipulating the girl Its ridiculous There was no character and relationship building The author just dove right in with the effed up relationship Ugh I m sorry I coul Ummm, ok Sadly, most of my fury is directed towards the many people who review this book Did you just go by what it said in the description There s was an epic

2016.Diversity Rating 1 TokenismRacial Ethnic 0QUILTBAG 0Disability 1 Dillon has mental issues the author says are purposefully left unspecified Intersectionality 0Though I can t pinpoint exactly what made Die for You work for me where other dating abuse focused YA novels like The Girl Who Fell and Bitter End failed, one detail makes it stick out Emma and Dillon s relationship is already established when the novel begins Though this seems like a minor detail, it puts readers in Emma s position as her seemingly solid relationship starts to fall apart and Dillon s behavior progressively worsens Her horror is the readers horror, her second guesses about his past behavior the readers as well.Emma s vibrant personality and deep love of archaeology lend her a kind of memorability that will stick around long after the book is over She s easy to bond with and almost every reader is bound to find something familiar in her, whether it s her toxic relationship or her sudden discomfort with the college plans she d had before her opportunity in Italy came along.It s tempting to classify the novel as suspense horror because of Dillon Though he starts out being merely a grumpy boyfriend at the prospect of Emma going to school in Italy for a major archaeological opportunity, it doesn t take long for him to threaten to hurt himself and then go through with it via burning himself Notable is the fact that he never lays a finger on Emma if I remember correctly Not every abusive relationship involves one partner harming another instead, the abusive partner will harm themselves or emotionally manipulate the other person.It doesn t hurt that I knew a real life Dillon and much of my horror was practically a flashback to watching that relationship go down in flames I was his seat partner in tenth grade and his girlfriend was one of my best friends in eleventh grade When she broke up with him, I saw all his texts to her where he threatened to kill himself or tell her family some of the secrets she d shared with him They got back together for a bit, but she is free of him for good now Thank God for that If you too were disappointed by other YA novels about dating abuse, Die for You might be the one that captures you and makes your organs rearrange themselves in fear The novel s climax certainly made my heart migrate to my throat Hell, if I wanted to get put through the emotional wringer for fun, this is one of the first books I d pick up for a reread.Also, don t listen to the jacket copy on this being a dark romance NO THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE IN ANY WAY We only see once it s too late But I know now that he s wrong We do see We see every damn sign along the way We chose not to pay attention What do you want Raw with mental illness, this book hits close to home Someone close to me is in this relationship, each decision weighed and measured against tipping the scale too far It s not romantic It s debilitating It s exhausting It s infuriating looking from the outside in.
