Thank you to NetGalley & Sourcefire Books for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
We All Fall Down was a pretty interesting young adult novel. I definitely had my attention grabbed from the beginning. I love the unrequited love, especially if the characters don’t know if it’s unrequited. It’s all a slow burn, and it grabs my attention every time.
I think this book had five star potential. I really liked the development and how their troubled pasts really shaped how this book turned out. I was pretty curious on how it would be when I reached towards the end. However, I think that this book lost me a couple of times which is why I gave it four stars. There were times where I had to stop and go back and think “huh”. Books like this generally intrigue me, but with this one, I didn’t totally understand one-hundred percent.
I really liked the concept of how this book was towards the end. It was a question of: is this a paranormal story or what’s even going on here? I loved that it was making me think in ways that a book hasn’t made me think in a while.
I’m excited to read Natalie D. Richard’s other books now. This was my first novel by her, but for sure not my last!
