One punch will shatter a town. But is anyone ready for the consequences of telling the truth? A stunning new YA novel about the complicated romance between a girl with everything on the line and a boy with nothing to lose following a king hit incident that leaves the high school golden boy in a coma, from the author of FAKE.
This book really touched me with it’s important message to what a punch can do to someone, with it happening all too often, it is great to see a novel that really conveys that message and is not afraid to touch on the subject.
I really loved What I Saw, I found it easy to read and engaging. The characters are thrown into moral dilemmas, although I found the love story a bit hard to believe, The story it self makes up for that if you just shove a few eye rolls in.
Callie is a popular girl she has so much pressure from her parents that she get a scholarship that is almost too much to bear. She goes to a school dance and drinks a bit too much, while being caught by the bad boy in school throwing up in the bushes, a fight breaks out and her best friends boyfriend gets put in a coma.
Callie must now decide to tell the truth and destroy her family or stay silent and let the wrong person take the fall.
although it seems like an easy decision, Beck Nicholas throws Callie into so much angst and drama that you really feel for her because a lot is riding on her decision.
