REVIEW: One Small Thing by Erin Watt


As with many other Erin Watt titles, One Small Thing got under my skin and stayed there the entire time I read. The characters and relationships were so frustratingly life-like that I found myself cringing and rage-reading -- because I, unfortunately, know that there are people in the world like the students of Darling High School (and like Beth's parents)-- and couldn't stop until I found out if Beth and Chase were going to find some relief from their situations, or not. If you've read any Erin Watt novels you know that the relief you're going to get is not going to come easy or quickly--One Small Thing definitely follows that formula. The characters made me crazy and angry and frustrated and just arggghhhhhh. Their story of grief and guilt and love and loss was a quick read, albeit one that had me wanting to reach in and throttle any one of them at some point--which just goes to show you how great this writing duo is that I'm that invested in what the heck these characters are up to.



Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems like a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.
