About the Author

Claire Wallis has penned hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles over the last ten years, with science playing the lead role in almost all of them. Though non-fiction writing will forever be her first love, fiction has unexpectedly swooped in, hooked her by the soul, and become her true love. As a result of this coup d��tat, Claire�s writing career has made a complete U-turn, and instead of rocks, plants, insects, and microbes, she is now putting human characters in the lead.

Claire�s previous jobs include working at a limestone quarry, hawking vegetables at a farmer�s market, clerking at the dollar store, and convincing new mothers that they need to renew their subscription to that parenting magazine in order for their child to survive. She lives in Pennsylvania with her amazingly awesome husband and son.

Dear Ms. Wallis, I must warn you that this letter will have a lot of profanity, since it seems the books you write bring out the angry sailor in me. I'm sitting here, f***ing stupefied. What the f*** did you just do to me?!! I cannot believe I just read the book that I read. It took me a while to digest it and to figure out how I feel about it, but after reading it, sleeping on it, going to work, and sleeping on it again, I've decided that I LOVED it and you are a f***ing sick, motherf***ing genius! This book was not a traditional romance, or typical in any sense, but it was one of the best love stories that I've ever read. Such FLAWED, heartbreaking, and tragic characters. Damn...I'm tearing up just thinking about them right now. How did you even come up with this plot?? After I read Push, I was worried and intensely curious about how you would conclude this story, since the lead was in fact a villain. I never saw him as a bad boy, or labeled him as any kind of anti-hero, because really, he's a murderer, a villain to the extreme. But he was a superhero to one person in the world, Emma. I wanted David to save Emma, and I wanted Emma to save David. But did he deserve a savior, or redemption? I was so conflicted while reading these books because I felt so wrong feeling sympathy for the devil. But the devil wasn't born, he was made, and as David said, LIFE complicated him. Reading the scenes from David's childhood made me want to f**ing choke someone. It was devastating to see all the sh** he went through as a child - all by himself!- while everyone else just turned a blind f**ing eye, and only bid him `good luck'. Good f**ing luck?! Why didn't anyone help him?! His rage was totally understandable. If I were him, I'd say f** the world too. But he didn't say that did he? Not really. He wanted so badly to make up for the mistake he thought he made on that bridge when he was 8-years-old. He was haunted by his mother (Ugh! HIS F***ING MOTHER - that b****!), and the sins he committed served one purpose. I liked seeing those bridge scenes from David's POV, because in Push, he just came off as a complete psycho, but in Pull, the empathy that I felt for him was real. This letter is an unorganized mess, but I'm just randomly writing about things as they enter my mind. I loved how you structured Pull - although, there were times I wanted to punch you in your throat because as soon as I got into a scene, you flipped it, and as soon as I got into that one, and I was dying to know what happened next, you flipped it again!!! D*mn you to h*ll for that, but it made the story so much more intriguing. I didn't know what the f*** was going on and I spent the majority of the book trying to figure out where you were going with the story. And then, the ending. The ENDING. I did not see that coming!! And why why why why why??? But then, it HAD to end like that didn't it? I skimmed the book again after I read the ending, and surprisingly, after my initial sadness and rage, I felt at peace. Satisfied, because it was perfect. I've never read a love story like this before, and I will never forget it. Your characters will linger. Especially David because he loved completely and without limit. He was willing to do whatever it takes to make Emma happy, and there aren't any qualifiers to that statement. It's not whatever it takes, that's within the law, or whatever it takes, that society deems acceptable. Whatever it takes. And although some might not be able to accept this as a love story, I think it was, and I think it was a stunning one. Thank you so much for writing this story. I am now a forever fan. ***If anyone is nervous about reading these books because of all the negativity by people who aren't satisfied with the ending, I challenge you to try it because it's different and it's a great story.***

This book did not go the direction I thought it would given what happened at the end of the first book.

I'm still a bit unsettled after finishing Pull. I was pleased to finally get the ending to the cliff-hanger from Push resolved and I really wish the book had ended there. While I was engrossed in the book, I just knew it wasn't going to end the way that I wanted it to...but I had to keep reading to know for sure! I love Claire Wallis writing. It touches your soul and you get so caught up in her characters that you have such a hard time living in the gray area with them. She gave us so much background into David's life and giving us a clearer insight into who he was. I have a war going on over the ending...although I see the reasoning...I just can't be satisfied with it...But bottom line is the book was an emotionally charged experience and I wouldn't have missed it. The characters still have a place in my heart and after-all and isn't that a sign of a great book? I am giving it 4.5 stars just because I can't get the ending out of my mind... "She is my savior, and because of her, redemption is not only possible, it's already happening. It is her gift to me." "I've been born-again, courtesy of David Calgaro and the 9th Street Bridge."

Great writing. Great plot and writing skills evident. HORRIBLE, horrible ending. Would still recommend reading this story of love and redemption and human connections meant to be. I hated the ending. Made me cry. Wish you could re write it. So sad.
