Find You in the Dark (Find You in the Dark, #1) - A. Meredith Walters **This may contain spoilers**

This a story about 2 teenagers, Maggie and Clay and what happens when their 2 worlds come together –

“You ran into my life, this beautiful, amazing girl changed everything. I finally saw what my world could be. What being normal and happy could look like. You’ve given me everything I never thought I could have!”

Maggie is a happy go lucky young girl with the world at her feet, loving parents, supportive friends, she does well at school and in sport; Then there is Clay for whom everyday is a struggle……he has serious issues he needs to deal with, he needs to face……

Maggie thinks she can deal with the situation by herself? No one can do this, let alone a 17 year old and there are devastating consequences.

”I was the biggest culprit in the enabling category. My “love” had only made things worse for him. Because I had refused to see what was right in front of my face. My denial had failed Clay. I put my face in my hands and cried.”

This story deals with extremely serious issues that unfortunately are not stories but real life for many people…..it breaks your heart……..

Some of the other characters responses to Clay are really quite frightening, his parents especially and even Maggie annoyed me in the way she dealt with things (I have to remember she is only 17, inexperienced and naive.) It took me a while to get into this story and I felt slightly detached for a while but by the end I was completely involved in their situation and the floodgates to my emotions opened right up!!

”Sometimes, love can’t make everything better, and the best thing for everyone is to walk away. No matter how much it may hurt.”

Will they get their HEA??????
