'The love story of the year' - Teen Now 'A real page-turner' -Mizz 'A romance with a difference -Bliss 'Highly recommend to fans of hard hitting, edgy, contemporary and to anyone who loves a smouldering, sexy, consuming love story to boot! -Jess Hearts Books Blog on Pushing the Limits 'McGarry's debut YA novel Pushing The Limits is an edgy YA romance that doesn't shy of pulling punches. McGarry is definitely a YA author to keep an eye out for; I'm very interested to see what she will write next and she certainly can write sexual tension very well. -Choose YA Blog Pushing the Limits was a sucker punch of a story, so beautifully and tragically told that now over a week since I finished reading I still can't get it out of my head, full of brilliant one liners and descriptive prose it really is going to be a hard book to beat, without a doubt my favourite contemporary of the year so far. -Read and Repeat Blog'
