Out Of Reach Review...

Title: Out of Reach 
Author: Missy Johnson
Release Date: May 8, 2014

My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.

Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play. 

He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me. 

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it. 

I'm in love with her.

As I'm trying to write this I am still crying. This book will go into my "amazing books" folder.1st off you have got to love Andy. He is dying but is just such a comedian that it's funny yet not ...
This book was one of the best I have ever read. I just did not see what Andy did coming. I'm sorry I can't be more specific but I can't give away what /how Em and Seth go about the feelings revealed.
I love Andy's tattoo !!! I was rolling when I read'll just have to see for yourself :)
Don't miss out on this emotionally charged book . I recommend this book to anyone who loves great books .

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a get the picture). 

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
