Stay with Me by Paul Griffin

Book Description

"The door opens, and this guy comes in, kind of tall, clean cut, definitely nice-looking, but there's something wrong with him. He strikes me as both wounded and perhaps a little dangerous." And so it began. Cece and Mack never expected to fall in love. She's a sensitive A-student; he's a high school dropout. But soon they're spending all their time together, bonding over a rescued dog, telling their darkest secrets. Everything is perfect. Until. Until. Mack loses control and makes a horrible mistake, and suddenly everything is impossible. Cece and Mack struggle, with both humour and compassion for each other,to answer the question: how do you survive when the person you love can't stay? Award-winning author Paul Griffin has written a story of first love that is both heartbreaking and uplifting, filled with characters, both dog and human, that will change the way you look at the world.

Book Review: Stay with Me by Paul Griffin - Reviewed by (26 Nov 2011)

I went into this book expecting a romance akin to Alex and Brittany in Perfect Chemistry. Good girl/bad boy, starcrossed lovers, etc. I was wrong. While I love that book, Stay With Me completely blew me away. It surprised me in this most moving way possible. It is a story of first loves and growing up, dealing with the consequences of your actions and finding redemption in even your darkest moments. It's honestly one of the most touching novels I've read in a long time.

Mack broke my heart. His confidence has been beaten down so damn much. He's lived a hard life and it's rare that this kid has ever caught a break, even believed in himself or had reason to truly be happy. But he has an amazing heart. He might not be able to spell a word correctly or know where exactly Boston is, but if he was down to his last penny, he'd give it to you if you needed it. He has an incredible bond with dogs. No matter how broken a dog is, Mack Morse can fix...

The new coming-of-age novel from Paul Griffin is both a confronting and a touching tale. The reader is drawn into the lives of Mack and Cece, who come from similar backgrounds but with different experiences that have shaped them into the young people they have become. We are taken into Mack's motherless world, with his drunk, absent father and Mack's magical ability to rescue, rehabilitate and train discarded fighting dogs. Cece is studying at school, struggling with her identity, future direction, her drunk but caring mother and her older brother who has enlisted in the army. Through the hopes, fears and tales of the two lead characters, the author shows us how we all struggle to find a place in the world, a purpose for our existence and the desperate need to belong and feel loved for who we are. This story is full of hope and love, but is also incredibly heartbreaking at times. Paul Griffin has cleverly explored the insecurities, false...
