Review: Stay (Caletti)

Title: Stay
Author: Caletti
Genre: Fiction, Relationships, Father/Daughter, Stalking
Pages: 313
Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

In a remote corner of Washington State where she and her father have gone to escape her obsessive boyfriend, Clara meets two brothers who captain a sailboat, a lighthouse keeper with a secret, and an old friend of her father who knows his secrets.

This is the perfect summer read, especially if you live in Washington State, because you really get the feel of summer in the Northwest. The description of the locations and landmarks is accurate. It is also a terrific book if you are a fan of Sarah Dessen and looking for something new to read.

This book had good dimension, underlying suspense, and a strong father figure (what a refreshing character in YA fiction). Clara is terrific narrator, and her footnotes to the reader add an interesting element to the book. It is exactly like Clara is the author, not Ms. Caletti. Ultimately, this is a book about a young woman figuring out how to forgive, love, and live again.
