Falling was a good read. The whole idea of falling or jumping into someone’s body was so unique and interesting to me. I kept reading to find out how Reid would deal with this really strange ability.
Reid, an orphan from age 11, was a senior at an all girl boarding school. I didn’t know how to feel about her sometimes. I liked her, but then I couldn’t relate to some of her choices which made me frustrated and unconnected to her. Like when Reid would choose to jump into someone’s body, instead of forced by her power. I couldn’t fathom why she would choose to invade someone’s privacy like that. Sometimes it was funny or interesting, but other times it bothered me. I also felt the writing was a bit confusing at times and had to go back and re-read something to follow what was happening.
Reid’s best friend Sara was fun; I wish there was a little more of her. I really liked Keller, the boy interest. The chemistry between Reid and Keller was great. I really enjoyed their scenes together. They were super cute! The ending was great and made everything all better. I liked Reid at the end and was glad to see her develop as a character.
