Lana's 5 Star Review ~ Lana's Good Reads Review


I have been a huge fan of Erin Watt and will continue to read their books. They sure have a way with words. One Small Thing surely puts life into perspective from the eyes of young adults. It talks about sensitive subjects and how you have to have one small thing to get you through the day.

Beth and Chase have surely had their fair share of tragedy and heartbreak but in the most unlikely circumstances, these two somehow find there way to each other. Against all odds, they make it work and learn a powerful life lesson. I couldn't put this book down and truly felt for both them.


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 apart…again.
