Title: Falling Into Place
Author: Kat Zhang
Publication: September 9th 2014
Cover Rating: 4/5
I really liked this book but the overall concept of it really pissed me off. I feel like the overall point of this book was showing that lives aren't important and are disposable. And that you can run away from your problems even if you are the one who created them.
We have this really popular bitch who likes to ruin lives but then one day decides that she can't handle all the bad stuff she had done. So she tries to end it all. And that is what really ticks me off. The least Liz could do was stay alive and DEAL WITH the pain she was feeling after hurting so many people. She dug her grave. Now sleep in it. She felt that she had the right to try and take her life and leave all the people she has ruined still alive to deal with their pain. What right did she have to end it? This just REALLY irks me.
I enjoyed all the flashbacks and the fact that a lot of people really sat down and thought about the things they have done in their lives. Liz's mother and two best friends really take this hard and they think about everything they should have done differently and how they want to be different people.
Liz really should have reached out to her mother instead of pushing her away. Just because a parent works a lot and goes on work trips doesn't mean that they aren't still your parents. It takes two to tango. Parents cant help you unless you want to be helped. You can't expect your mother to fix everything without you telling or showing her what you want and need.
Liz is one of the stupidest girls I have every read about. She ruins lives, has a boyfriend who cheats on her but stays with him and she tries to drown everything in alcohol. Hasn't anyone ever told her that your life is what YOU make it? I guess not.
The ending was a shock. I really didn't expect it to happen. Now I just want to know what happens with Liam. Maybe if Liam had been in her life before the "accident" then Liz would have felt like she had more of a reason to live.
Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.
