Today I shall be reviewing a book titled FreeFall by Mindi Scott. It her debut novel.
Here is the description of the book:
How do you come back from the point of no return?
Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend, Isaac, alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time when Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn't wake up.
Convinced that his own actions led to his friend's death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.
Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth soon realizes he isn't the only one who needs saving . . .
A book from a guy's perspective, what do you expect? Greatness. I really like books that are narrated by guys. It just makes me get into their head and know exactly how they think. To me it always seems like a whole new experience since most of the books I read are from girl's perspective and its hard to find one that always would stand out. But here we are introduced to Seth McCoy who is the bass player in his brother's band.
The book deals with teenagers dealing with their fears and fighting them. The book shows us real problems that many teenagers face and having hard time to get out of it. For example, Seth had fear of getting on stage after the death of his best friend. Another example would be Rosetta who has to face the fear of driving after the death of her parents. Both, in a very romantic way, help to overcome their fears which remind us the main propose of the existence of the word 'soul mates'.
Also, this book made me realize and know for sure that bad things happen for good reasons. Just when Seth was on the edge of breaking down, he gets rescued by the following:
· His soul mate
· IC Class
All these things helped Seth to find the right path.
Even though the ending was predictable, I really did enjoy reading it till the end.
Here is the trailer ( you will like it more than the review)
