REVIEW – WHEN WE FALL by SLOANE MURPHY
When We Fall had me sucked in right from the get go. At page three I was already dying to read more.
This story is heartbreaking and will take you back to the times of being a teenager. It’s real and raw painting us a picture of what some going through high school can face. It’s not always pretty and sometimes you have to weather the storm and sometimes you break.
Erin goes through bullying in this story and my heart completely went out to her. At times I found myself so angry for her. Angry at those that were cruel. Angry at those that stood by and did nothing.
In walks Mason Knight, a true knight in shining armour. I loved him and it felt like he showed up at just the time when Erin needed him the most. What we get is a sweet friendship which turns into more. But along the way there are roadblocks from outside and within which will have you almost needing for it to go smoothly, hoping and praying that things would work out.
At one point in this story I was left reeling, completely reeling. It made me stop and think OH GAWD !!! WHY, Just WHY !!!! How this ends though is so sweet even though the heartbreak endured throughout the book will leave you speechless at times.
This book will make you pause and think, it will make you angry about things that are occurring in our real world today and hopefully it will make you want to stop and think in real life when you come across those situations yourself.
A heartbreaking yet heartwarming romance filled with the harsh realities of our world today that shows us how we can protect, support and help one another to become better.
Do you remember that moment?
That one moment.
The one when you changed.
People might say it was this or that, but deep down you know.
You know exactly what that moment was. Even if you’re not ready to admit it to yourself.
I remember mine, it didn’t just change me.
It changed everything.
Everyone thought Mason Knight was the whirlwind that swept me away. But nothing compares to those two shots. Those two shots woke me up and made me see that when we fall, sometimes we need help to get back up.
