Maggie fears the return of the one person that she hates the most, the person who’s responsible for her accident. Caleb Becker is happy to go home in Paradise after being in juvenile for over a year for a hit and run drunk driving that caused Maggie her limp. Both of them are out cast now in their school, will they find themselves in the midst of their difference?
It’s a done deal! Simone Elkeles is now one of my favorite authors! Leaving Paradise for me is a master piece of a story, a story that will stay to you after you finish it. A story that is so great that you may wish that it will last forever. The story of Caleb and Maggie is a story that left me breathless while reading it, a one of a kind book that you should not dare to miss. It captured my heart the moment I read it and while finishing it it has left me breathless! A Wonderfully written story with characters that is so compelling you won’t stop reading it. It made me feel different kinds of emotion while reading it. I cannot express more how I like this book; it’s a story about redemption, hope and love. Definitely worth reading.
Maggie and Caleb are such strong characters and that what I really like best. They fought all the stares of people looking down on them because of what happened. They have family problems, friend’s issues and a lot more to deal with but they overcome it all. All the characters are beautifully created; Mrs. Reynolds specifically is one of them. She is one woman that reminds me of my grandmother. I admire her because of her wisdom and with all the wise words that she told Maggie. She brought Maggie and Caleb together, she gave Caleb a chance in spite of what he’s had done to Maggie.
Simone Elkeles has created a book that is hard to forget, a story that will stay with me forever. This story has a special mark in my heart now. This is one book that made me cry and cry the moment it finished and it rarely happens. Read it and I swear you won’t be disappointed.
