Book Review: Deeper We Fall

Deeper We Fall by Chelsea Cameron: "Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.

Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.

Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie's face.

Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves "To Kill a Mockingbird" as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can't help but listen.

The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache."

My thoughts: The first year of college can be hell, but to have the two people you most hate in life show up in the same dorm? Talk about drawing the short straw. Despite Lottie’s best efforts, she cannot resist brooding, quiet Zan who only has eyes for her. I was unsure why the big secret was such a big secret, or why Zan thought Lottie would leave him after its revelation. But the love story between the two of them is sweet, and makes you really hope Lottie can get past her hatred and find love. The relationship between Lottie and Lexie is also amazing. Not many friends would remain friends after your best friend turns into a five-year-old. I had a hard time with all the coincidences – Zack & Zan in the same dorm; Lottie’s roommate dating Zack; Lottie’s best friend turns out to be the sister of Zan’s best friend. One or two I can see…this was a whole lot of coincidences.

All-in-all, I thought it was a great poolside read.
