Crash (Crash, #1)Crash by Nicole Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a wonderful, young adult book that was well written with strong characters. Lucy is a 17 year old girl, who is a dancer and has a dream of going to Julliard. Right before she enters her senior year at Southpointe High, which is a typical, small town, high school filled with lots of rumors, she meets the one and only Jude Ryder. He just screams all over, flat out, sexy bad boy to Lucy and immediately they have a strong attraction to each other. Jude doesn't do the girlfriend thing but all too soon he realizes that he can't stand to be apart from Lucy and wants to protect her. Jude warns Lucy that she should basically steer clear of him at all costs but soon Lucy also learns that the heart wants what the heart wants. These two will have to get through many hurdles during their last year of high school as well as a startling revelation that will hurt them both but also make them realize something else. I enjoyed this story because the characters were very real and I could relate to their story in some way. Lucy is a strong and very smart young woman, who has been through a lot and her parents aren't exactly all there due to the hand that life has dealt their family. Jude is your typical bad boy with a rap sheet, pages long and lives in a boy's home. He is a tortured young man who has been through hell and back but what these two find together is absolutely wonderful and heartwarming considering all the odds that were against them once the truth was revealed. Great young adult book with lots of heated kissing. I highly recommend this book and there is also a sequel called Clash.
