Book Review: Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers - Reviewed by Skye (20 Aug 2011)
Fall For Anything follows Eddie as she tries to understand her father's unexpected suicide. I knew immediately this wouldn't be some light, fluffy chick lit, but I really wasn't prepared for how intense it was.
The characters - each and every one of them - were fleshed out, and seemed to jump from the page. Their personalities were realistic and uncliched.
Courtney Summer's writing style was, as always, amazing. She's one of those authors who could write on any subject and still engage me. Her prose clearly evokes the Eddie's voice. I felt immediately sympathetic towards her, feeling depressed right along with her. I love books like this one - that can make you feel what your character does.
Fall For Anything maintains the same gritty tone that has completely enthralled me in the rest of Summers's books, but the plot felt different. Much more serious, with a mysterious element.
I case I had any doubt, this book settled it: Courtney Summers is the queen of bittersweet, realistic endings. Her books are the cure for fairy tales.
I give Fall For Anything a 5 out of 5, and look forward to what she comes up with next.
Courtney Summers lives and writes in Canada, where she divides most of her time between a camera, a piano and a word processing program. Visit her online at http://courtneysummers.ca
