Out of Reach by Missy Johnson Review

 Out of Reach

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 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.


One word says it all....
Out of Reach is about  Em, Seth, and Andy's
unwavering, unconditional, supportive, SELFLESS TRUE friendship, life, death, learning to cope with a devastating loss, guilt, and learning to love again.
I felt every emotion known to man while I was absorbed in their world.
The highest of highs and lowest of lows. sweet Andy...
I don't have enough words to express my love and compassion for him.
He is amazingly brave.
His only fear is not of death but of Em being alone....
Not continuing to live.
So, he came up with the bucket list, with ulterior motives.
I'm not so sure if I could be as selfless as Andy, if I was in his position.
Out of Reach is a an ABSOLUTE one-clicker!
