First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.
When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.
And then I met Nate Preeter.
An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.
My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.
And then he showed me how to fall.
*This is a standalone in a three-part series that will focus on different characters. Each book can be read on its own.
This Is Falling is so many things. The one that sticks out the most to me is sweet. At the end of the day when all is said and done, it is one of the sweetest books I have read in a really long time. When it came to the trauma Rowe had experienced it was nothing like what I was expecting. It was horrific and awful and I can completely understand why she withdrew from the world the way she did. Enter Nate.. the boy we all wish we could have.. the boy who is willing to wait forever even though he doesn't understand why he has to wait. I don't remember what about this book grabbed me when I came across it on Netgalley I'm just glad that it did.
