The Space Between Us By: Jessica Martinez
Posted by Krystal Larson at 6:54 PM Monday, December 17, 2012
From the author of Virtuosity, a novel about two sisters and the secrets they tell, the secrets they keep—and the secret that could tear them apart.Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. She doesn’t mind, mostly, that it always falls to her to cover for Charly’s crazy, impulsive antics. But one night, Charly’s thoughtlessness goes way too far, and she lands both sisters in serious trouble.
Amelia’s not sure she can forgive Charly this time, and not sure she wants to . . . but forgiveness is beside the point. Because Charly is also hiding a terrible secret, and the truth just might tear them apart forever.
The relationship of two sisters is described by Jessica Martinez in The Space Between Us. Responsible and goal-driven Amelia works tirelessly to achieve her dream of attending Columbia University in New York. Charly, her younger sister, is wild and crazy, always getting in and out of trouble. Amelia looks out for Charly and tries to prevent her from pulling any stunts that are too out of control. One day Charly does not come home from a night of partying. Amelia fears the worst and is extremely angry when Charly finally returns home. For the next several weeks, Charly is a recluse and seems ill. Finally, Charly admits to Amelia that she is pregnant and Amelia’s world changes. They are sent to live in Canada until the due date and Amelia is furious.
The Space Between Us could be enjoyed by most teen girls. Charly and Amelia are relatable teen girls who are frustrated by problems that most girls have. More serious issues enter the book as it progresses: pregnancy and date rape.
Martinez did a great job writing a book about sensitive issues. The characters all seemed realistic and were memorable. I give this novel four out of five stars.
