(9)The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

The Way We Fall

Publication Date: January 24, 2012
Pages: 320

I don't know why I have been so fascinated by the "end of the world" type novels, but for some reason they strike a chord with me.   Next up is The Way We Fall, by Megan Crewe.

Sixteen year old Kaelyn lives with her family on an island that just used to be their vacation home.  Then her biologist father discovered that her brother, Drew, is gay.  He moved them out of the city and back to the island so fast their heads were spinning.  Life is going okay when people on the island start getting sick. It starts as a tickle in the throat, but soon people are dying from this disease that is spreading fast and has no cure.  It isn't long before the Government has quarantined the island and cut them off from the outside world.  Kaelyn is desparate to keep her family safe.  But soon her mother becomes a victim of the deadly disease and then Kaelyn feels the dreaded itch...

The Way We Fall is a Young Adult novel about a family, an island, cut off from the world.  With her Dad busy trying to find a cure and then her mom getting sick, Kaelyn is left to her own devices.  The Way We Fall is a fast read full of "What if's..."   I enjoyed seeing what Kaelyn did to help her father find a cure. The Way We Fall is pretty tame as far as Dystopian novels go, but it was still enjoyable if you like that type of novel.
