It's hard to love a book like this-- the relationship in this book is so hard to read about. BUT yet, this is a book I loved anyway.

Betts meets Aiden and he's everything she's been wishing for. He's sexy and super-interested in her-- and who doesn't like a guy on a motorcycle?? But Aiden is damaged, and soon Betts finds herself tip-toeing around his moods and his jealousy. He wants to be with her all the time, which at first she finds adorable, but it soon it becomes obvious that it's not LOVE that is making Aiden needy-- it's control.

Betts and Aiden were toxic. Or really, Aiden was just toxic. I've been in a relationship with an Aiden and believe me when I say, it can be really hard to get out of. These types of dudes know how to suck you in. They know how to pull at your heartstrings, isolate you, and make you feel lower than low. They know when you are about to leave and they know exactly what to say so that you won't. Will every girl or guy fall into their trap?? Probably not. But once they find someone that they can suck into their web, it becomes a dangerous and volatile situation.

Hands down the best part of this book was Jo. Without Jo, I don't know if Betts could have made it. She was losing herself and Jo was the only thing grounding her. Most friends will give up on a girl like Betts-- she's pushing everyone away because in these relationships that's what people do-- but Jo isn't budging. She was an all-around great human being, and I wish there were more Jo's in this world.

I really did love this book. I felt like the progression of the relationship and Betts's evolution was well-done. Betts started out thinking this relationship empowered her to be someone other than a tagalong for Jo and her twin brother, and I think a lot of people fall into that trap. It's easy to confuse being happy that you are finally the center of someone's world, and obsession.

PS-- If you are in a relationship with an Aiden-- LEAVE. I know it's hard. Ask for help. What Betts and Aiden had wasn't love. Love would never make you feel like that.

OVERALL: So happy that I read this book. It brought back painful memories, but it was SO worth it. I hope that anyone who has an Aiden (or may meet an Aiden in the future) gets ahold of this book. The more people are aware of these types of relationships, the fewer people who will be susceptible.

This anthology consists of short scary stories for young adults. Many of the stories are only a few pages and end on a cliffhanger – letting the reader imagine what happened. I think this would be a good independent reading book for a student, as it is easy to find a place to stop and take a break.

These stories provide shivery psychological scares. If reading aloud with kids, give them time to process after a story...sitting with the possibilities will soon have them looking over their shoulders! Highlights: Beatrice, You're It, Truly Delicious, Lucky, The Best Teacher at Pleasant Hill Oak Elementary, Good Dog and Bad Cat, Here Kitty Kitty.
