Inhaltsangabe zu „One Moment“ von Kristina McBride

This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget. Maggie Reynolds remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party the night before. She remembers climbing the trail hand in hand with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can't she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below—dead? As Maggie's memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding? McBride delivers a novel of secrets that packs an emotional punch, perfect for fans of Sara Zarr and Gayle Forman.

Raw emotions, a likable main character, secrets, betrayal, forgiveness, friendships put to the proof: I love it all.

    This book, I simply loved reading it. So full of emotions and I believed them all. The story is solely told from Maggies point of view. The secrets Joey kept from her and the mystery of his death unravel just in the right pace. Until Maggie remembers what has happened shortly before her boyfriend meets his end at the bottom of a cliff, you would'nt be sure if not Maggie herself pushed him, if she was angry and hurt enough for something like that. But not only Joey was keeping things from her, some of her other friends were doing that, too. It was quite exiting to find out what they were all hiding. I also liked the way long-time friendships were put to the proof here. The emotional turmoil involved was comprehensible and quite gripping at the same time. How Maggie deals with everything that is thrown at her and grows through it is quite believable, too. I liked her very much right from the start and wished that everything what turn out fine for her. In the end everything fits together and I was left with a content and hopeful feeling that life will go uphill for Maggie now. She definitely deserves it after all the hurt and betrayal. From the first page onward the book has hooked me. The emotional ride and all the drama, the secrets, friendships being tested: that seems just so real. Real life is portrayed here at its rawest. I can strongly recommend this story.
