Breathing Underwater
Alex Flinn
I was not very satisfied with the ending of the book. It really just jumped right to a conclusion. Before hand, he was fighting with his dad and his best friends. In the next chapter Caitlin was at a different school, Tom wanted to be best friends as if nothing happened, and his dad bought him a new car. I think an alternate ending could have been something more serious between NIck and Caitlin. Something on the lines of her dropping the restraining order and they get back together. Another ending could have been where Nick finally abused the restraining order enough, that Caitlin called the cops and Nick got taken to jail. The authors ending really just jumped right to conclusion. An alternate ending would have made the book better with a twist no one really saw was coming.
