If there is a word which I have now begun to describe Courtney Summer’s novels is this one: Fearless. And this one is not the exception. I really think this has become my favorite novel of Courtney Summers. Her main character – name – is different from the ones of her past novels. Not in a bad way though, I think I could easily describe her as Fragile – not weak. There’s a difference. A BIG one.
As it is said in the summary, Eddie’s father kills himself, and so the book is her journey to find answers to what her father did. And so Eddie’s life becomes just that. A big Why. Stuck between nowhere. Wanting to find the answers to questions she has not yet found, things that are forever lost.
So in the middle of this Limbo she meets Culler, a boy that approaches her with some camera lens, and offers to give her a new point of view, and maybe even answers to all of those why. And like the title says, she’s willing to Fall For Anything. Though from my point of view, it seems that, more than falling, she had to Crash into everything.
Original, page turning, an unexpected ending, heartbreaking truths, unbearable uncertainties, and more hope than you could ever imagine. Fall For Anything, will linger in your mind and heart, long after you’ve finished.
"This is awful. This is so hopeless. We're all lost in different ways, so how do we even help each other find our way out. We won't. We can't. We'll just stay lost forever.
