Reclaiming the Sand by A. Meredith Walters

Bully and victim. Tormenter and tormented. Villain and hero. Ellie McCallum was a bully. No connection to anyone or anything. A sad and lonely existence for a young woman who had come to expect nothing more for herself. Her only happiness coming from making others miserable. Particularly Freaky Flynn. Flynn Hendrick lived a life completely disconnected even as he struggled to become something more than that boy with Asperger's. He was taunted and teased, bearing the brunt of systematic and calculated cruelty, ultimately culminating in a catastrophic turn of events that brought Ellie and Flynn’s worlds crashing down. But then Flynn and Ellie grew up. And moved on. Until years later when their paths unexpectedly cross again and the bully and the freak are face to face once more. When labels come to define you, finding yourself feels impossible. Particularly for two people disconnected from the world who inexplicably find a connection in each other. And out of the wreckage of their tragic beginnings, an unlikely love story unfolds. But a painful past doesn’t always want to let go. And old wounds are never truly healed…and sometimes the further you try to run from yourself the closer you come to who you really are.

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars

A controversial book with so much impact!
WOW! What a read... My mind is still reeling at this one.
The characters were unique and while at times they frustrated the hell out of me, I LOVED them!
Each one brought so much to the table....
The story is about a bully falling in love with the guy she has always picked on. Ever since they went to High School together she had a soft spot for him. Around her friends though, she built up a wall and joined in on the bullying. When he comes back into her life she realizes that she has feelings. She wants to pretend she doesn't, but finds him hard to resist.

Flynn is different. He suffers from Asperger's and struggles with socializing. He is brutally honest all the time and says everything that is on his mind. When it comes to Ellie he tries his best to impress her with his charm and good looks. Flynn is guarded and likes to keep people at a distance. Ellie helps him peel back the layers to expose him to a romance like no other. Together they struggle with building a relationship and trying to communicate without hurting one another. They both are different, but together they create a beautiful story!

This is a MUST READ.... There is a lesson behind it and the romance will consume your heart. At times you will want to throw the book, but you will want to come back... don't worry!

It shows that love overcomes all.
