Review of Crossing by Stacey Wallace Benefiel


Due to heavy subject matter, Crossing is recommended for readers 17+.

He stole her lipstick…and her heart.

Twenty-year-old Dani Walker can’t believe her luck when she’s paired up with the gorgeous Liam Garrett as her Acting I scene partner – or when he ends up in her bed. Being a Plain Jane with a mouth on her hasn’t exactly served Dani well in the guy department. In fact, she’s had nothing but one night stands. Still, she lets go of her insecurities and falls for Liam, despite feeling like he’s holding something back.

When Dani finally discovers Liam’s secret, she must learn the true meaning of accepting the ones we love for who they are, or risk losing the best thing that’s ever happened to her.


There are so many feelings I harbor about this book.  It is NOTHING like I have ever read before.  I was so surprised with the twists in the plot.  This isn't your typical boy meets girl romance.
This is a highly personal glimpse into the writer's life.  It is based on a true story.  That's what makes the story really stick in your mind after you've finished reading it.
I felt many emotions during this book.  I was along for an emotional roller coaster ride.  This book definitely contained heavy subject matter.  It also isn't recommended for the younger crowd because of the sex scenes.
Overall, this was a surprising read that will have you turned upside down.  I give it four glittery stars for it's originality and sensitive subject matter.
