Review: How We Fall by Kate Brauning


Ever since Jackie moved to her uncle's sleepy farming town, she's been flirting way too much--and with her own cousin, Marcus.
Her friendship with him has turned into something she can't control, and he's the reason Jackie lost track of her best friend, Ellie, who left one knows where. Now Ellie has been missing for months, and the police, fearing the worst, are searching for her body. Swamped with guilt and the knowledge that acting on her love for Marcus would tear their families apart, Jackie pushes her cousin away. The plan is to fall out of love, and, just as she hoped he would, Marcus falls for the new girl in town. But something isn't right about this stranger, and Jackie's suspicions about the new girl's secrets only drive the wedge deeper between Jackie and Marcus--and deepens Jackie's despair.
Then Marcus is forced to pay the price for someone else's lies as the mystery around Ellie's disappearance starts to become horribly clear. Jackie has to face terrible choices. Can she leave her first love behind, and can she go on living with the fact that she failed her best friend?

Two seventeen-year old cousins live in the same house with their dysfunctional family, and fall in love, despite their efforts not to.
If you’re a person who enjoys reading about young romance may be this would be a good read for you. For me a romantic novel has to have a lot more substance to hold my interest. I found “How it Falls” too repetitive, it didn’t hold my interest or capture my imagination. I found myself wanting to skim though it and I even read the last page to see if the ending was worth the effort. Once I knew the ending, I gave up.
That’s not to say, it isn’t a good read for the young romantics. It’s just not the type of book I enjoy.
