Falling starts you off very strongly with Matt Shaw, the
high school's best basketball player, walking down the
street listening to music. The reader finds out very
quickly that at Matt's house there are 'losers' that come
for his brother Neal. Lately Neal has been rude to Matt and
he keeps to himself a lot. Katie, a girl with four main
best friends called the Trust, meets Matt on an online
chatroom. They find out who they actually are and begin to
hang out. When Matt tells Katie his secret, and Matt's
neighbor tells one of her friends Matt's secret, the whole
school finds out. Matt blames it on Katie, but it really
isn't her fault at all. Will they end up happily together
or just a mess?
Falling was a very well written book. It
had very realistic characters and a good plot. However, I
think the story could have had more tiny details. It gave
enough information for the reader, but maybe if it had a
little more it could be even better. The vocabulary was
perfect for a young adult level. The book leaves you
hanging in the end, but not so much that you don't
understand it. I know that if there is a sequel I will want
to read it.
In this book there is some mild swearing at
times. It also talks about drugs throughout it.

Matt Shaw is a high school freshmen in trouble. He and his
brother used to be best friends, now they never see each
other. Katie Henoch is an average girl with her best
friends. But that close little circle is falling apart.
Katie and Matt's lives cross in an online chat room.
Everything starts falling apart.
This was a truly
inspirational story with a lot of surprises. It was a
ittle corny at first, but it got better. The struggle
between Matt and his brother is exciting. The story is
also a little sad. The ending is pretty much a happy one.
There is some emotions and drug related
