This is Falling by Ginger Scott ♡♡♡♡.5
This is Falling by Ginger Scott is a book that has been sitting on my Nook for so long, I'm not really sure where I found out about it. I've put it off because I wasn't sure I wanted to read another new adult book about a girl who went through a tragedy where we don't find out what happened until the middle of the story. Been there. Done that. But I'm so glad I picked it up because I was blown away.
This is Falling tells the story of Rowe and Nate. Rowe is going to college a thousand miles from home after being home schooled for two years because of something that has left her damaged in more ways than one. Nate is a baseball player who falls for Rowe the moment he sets eyes on her. And he's willing to take things slow with her, even though he's not sure what happened to her, and Rowe isn't really telling.
So, I normally hate when there's some big secret kept, especially when the story is in first person. It usually doesn't make sense and feels forced, but in This Is Falling, it was perfect to the character. I enjoyed watching Rowe open up and deal with her issues, and watching Nate patiently wait for her and help her along the way was beautiful.
I laughed, cried, and lost a lot of sleep reading this book. I could not put it down! I can't wait to start another book by Ginger Scott, because This is Falling was so good. Her characters were wonderfully written, and she took a difficult situation and turned it into a beautiful story.
Have you read any books by Ginger Scott? What did you think? Any recommendations on what to read next?
