 Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma 
 Release Date: September 5th 2013 by Definitions
 Format: Papberack

Goodreads Summary:
Why? is the burning question on everyone’s lips. Why would a guy like Mathéo Walsh want to die? At seventeen, he is Britain’s most promising diving champion. He is a heartthrob, a straight A student and lives in one of the wealthiest areas of London. He has great mates and is the envy of everyone around him. And most importantly of all, he is deeply in love with his girlfriend, Lola. He has always been a stable, well-adjusted guy...

Until one weekend. A weekend he cannot seem to remember. All he knows is that he has come back a changed person. One who no longer knows how to have fun, no longer wants to spend time with his friends, no longer enjoys diving. Something terrible happened that weekend – something violent and bloody and twisted. He no longer knows who he is. He no longer trusts himself around people: he only wants to hurt, wound and destroy. Slowly, he begins to piece back the buried, fragmented memories, and finds himself staring at the reflection of a monster.

Tormented, Mathéo suddenly finds himself faced with the most devastating choice of his life. Keep his secret, and put those closest to him in terrible danger. Or confess, and lose Lola forever...

Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. The author. I know that Tabitha's previous book Forbidden touched on a lot of controversial subjects so I can't help be curious about Hurt.
 2. The synopsis. I love stories about people whose lives completely change from one moment to another and where there is a bit of mystery. Mathéo sounds like he has the perfect life and then it all flips for him. Wonder what happened and really can't wait to read this. Sounds intriguing.

 What do you guys think? :)
