“Grace always has a plan. There’s her plan to get famous, her plan to get rich, and—above all—her plan to have fun. 
Sawyer has plenty of plans too. Plans made for him by his mother, his father, his girlfriend. Maybe they aren’t his plans, but they are plans.
When Sawyer meets Grace, he wonders if he should come up with a few plans himself. Plans about what he actually wants to be, plans to speak his own mind for a change, plans to maybe help Grace with a little art theft. 
Wait a minute—plans to what?”
I love a character who is so different, you can’t help but get caught up in them. This book is just that.
Have you ever had a time in your life where your parents, friends, signficant other ruled everything you do? Got tired of it? Yeah, that Sawyer. Everything is laid out for him all he has to do is follow the rules and stay out of trouble. Sawyer feeling indfferent about the desicions in his life, find another friend who just so helps him find who he is. I loved Sawyer. He is the type of character that is beinng screamed to be molded. He didn’t talk back or say anythig, he did what he was told and when he was told. Grace open up his eyes to something different. For the first time, he was thinking about what he wanted to do.
Grace herself is a character that just scream different. She goes after what she wants despite what other people think.  I like to have that type of mentally. To not worry what others thinks and just go with it.
There really wasn’t a love interest but rather a friendship that is untouchable. Form with late night stakes, crazy conversations, Grace and Sawyer are like siblings getting into trouble. LOL!
Overall, Fall From Grace is a great eye opener. It allows the reader to see a control life but to also learn to think for themselves. Never allow anyone to tell you what you can and can not do.
I give it 3 BITES!
Happy Reading!

    I hadn’t heard of this one but I know all to well how it feels to have everyone else plan out what will/should be happening in your own life. Glad that there was a strong friendship because you need those in times like that. Great review
