From the #1 New York Times bestselling author duo of The Royals and When It’s Real comes a sensational new novel about a girl falling for the one boy she should never have met

Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth
s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make
follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apartagain. 

Beth's sister has been killed three years ago. A car ran her over - the driver didn't see her. Charlie Donnelly. 16 years old at the time, he was sent to juvie for three years. And now, in Beth's last year of school, he's back.
And he's going to her school.
Which she didn't know when she had a rebelling-against-her-mega-overstrict-parents one-night stand with him at a party last weekend!
Everyone at school and in town hates him. Especially her parents. She should too, right?
But she doesn't - she feels like she has to defend him and befriend him....
But her parents would never allow that.
They don't allow anything. Not even driving, jobbing, going away to college!

What will happen to Beth & Chase?
Will there be a HEA?



I started reading and expected a cute little teenie romance. But ugh. No. That was so not what I was getting! This was so much more. Such an amazing dramance!
You start reading and you like Beth immediately. She just wants to enjoy her last year in highschool and then leave for the big world - aka go to college.
BUT HER PARENTS!!! UGH! Those people!
I can understand where they're coming from. Of course they want to make sure that their only living child will not be hurt or harmed. But they just go way too far. I wanted to call child protective services while reading! You see sparks of the old amazing, funny parents here and there, but they just exaggerated with everything!

And Beth and Chase! Ugh, those two. How can they ever be together after what happened???
I was crying so much while reading. I was constantly afraid of what might happen next. What cruel things the kids at school would do to get rid of Chase. Or what new thing her parents would come up with.

Beth and Chase are so perfect for each other.

He's so sorry for what he did. He feels so guilty.
And Beth feels guilty too - for liking him. For falling for him. But he's just so sweet and nice and kind and ... He listens to her. He gets her. She gets him. Under different circumstances they would be the IT couple at school.
But what happened happened.
And the reader can only hope that Beth's parents and the town will one day forgive Chase.
I sooo want them to end up happily together at the college of their dreams.

But it doesn't look too promising through most of the book ....

... but there's still hope!

Also - I so wouldn't mind seeing this on Netflix someday soon!

ONE SMALL THING was such a heartbreakingly amazing love story! I loved and hated every beautiful second of it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Chase - this one is MINE!!!   

And now I'm excited for whatever the Erin Watt ladies have for us next!☺
