This was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie’s life. Now it’s the one she’d do anything to forget.Maggie remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a blowout party. She remembers climbing the trail with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers that last kiss, soft, lingering, and meant to reassure her. So why can’t she remember what happened in the moment before they were supposed to dive? Why was she left cowering at the top of the cliff, while Joey floated in the water below–dead?As Maggie’s memories return in snatches, nothing seems to make sense. Why was Joey acting so strangely at the party? Where did he go after taking her home? And if Joey was keeping these secrets, what else was he hiding?The latest novel from the author of The Tension of Opposites, One Moment is a mysterious, searing look at how an instant can change everything you believe about the world around you.Praise for One Moment: "Infused with page-turning mystery, One Moment is as heartbreakingly real as it is unexpectedly romantic."—Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived"One Moment took my breath away. Beautifully written, achingly romantic, and so much tension the pages seem like they're turning themselves. One of the best books I've read in ages."—Lauren Barnholdt, author of Two-Way Street"A page-tuner that grabbed me by the throat, and was impossible to put down!"—Katrina Kittle, author of Reasons to Be Happy"Good, solid drama about the power of secrets to test the bounds of friendship, with just enough tension to satisfy teen readers."—Kirkus Reviews"McBride (The Tension of Opposites) skillfully interweaves Maggie’s flashes of memory with present action, making for a tense and absorbing psychological mystery."—Publishers Weekly

Instead of Maggie's summer being filled with fun it's been filled with pain. Maggie remembers hanging out at the gorge with her best friends, she remembers climbing the trail with her perfect boyfriend, but she doesn't remember what happened when they were supposed to dive off the cliff together. Wh...

Started out okay, but dragged on and on even though things are so predictable. There were a lot of dialogues and flashbacks; it bored me most of the time.I don't like Mags, especially with what happened in the end. When the secret was out about how Adam loves her, there was became a moment where she...

DNF @ 8%. July 20, 2014.Read first few chapters and I gave up. I just finished one awesome YA book and One Moment can never top it off. Sorry, this book wasn't for me and I don't want to waste time linger on when I have piles of unread books await.Read on your own peril.

Realistic fiction is not my main genre, but this book had enough to keep me going and want to get to the end. Death, amnesia, broken hearts, unrequited love... hopeful ending...yeah...it was good enough.
