Book carry words that have the power to turn you from being so happy to being depressed with yourselves in minutes. Falling into Place turned me literally into an emotional wreck. I didn’t know what to do with myself after reading this book and I felt like curling up in my blanket and lay in my bed.

The story covers things that students face when growing up and I feel that the way the book is written is easy for students to connect with and understand. It feels like that there is so much time and effort in writing this book that the book feels like someone’s own personal diary that has just been released to the world.

Liz Emerson seems to be the girl that everyone wishes they could be when going through high school, but one thing that they don’t realize is the pain and suffering that she is feeling on the inside. I feel that Liz is a girl one would want to slap sometimes but once you go further into the book, you feel some sort of compassion and regret towards her which makes it easy for one to fall in love with. And of course you want to know why she wanted to kill herself?

What I really liked is the way the story is told. I will not tell you who the narrator is but it is someone you will not expect. This was such a clever way to tell the story and I have to be honest in saying that this is the only book I have read with such a narrator.

Overall this book will pull you in different directions and leave you in tears by the last page. Falling into Place is a great start for Amy Zhang and I look forward to future books.

I give this book 5 bites!
