Mini-Review: Deadfall by Stephen Wallenfels - 4 stars

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 9:00 AM

Title: Deadfall
Genre: Young Adult Suspense
Author: Stephen Wallenfels
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication: December 11th 2018
Cover Rating: 5/5
Reading format: Netgalley

Deadfall by Stephen Wallenfels is a book about twin brothers, their horrible father and how they ended up in the foster care system. 

My above description of this book sounds vague and that is because I want it to be. This is one of those books where you need to read everything in order to understand all the events and I don't want to spoil that for anyone so I will keep it vague. 

I will say, however, that the beginning of the book was pretty slow for me. I really didn't enjoy the parts where it went back to the past and showed the father. I did end up liking that part a bit further on in the book when the action started to pick up but in the beginning, I was dreading it. 

This book contains crime, sexual stuff, a gay character, drugs, violence, the woods, snow, a deer, car accident, explosion and many other very interesting things that really draw the reader into the story. I was very glad the story was told more from Cory's perspective because I don't think I would have liked reading from Ty's very much. Cory was a great voice for the story.

In the end, I didn't think I was going to enjoy this book because I have a weird thing where I hardly ever enjoy books told from the boys perspective unless is it dual back and forth, but I really liked the book and I liked Cory's voice throughout the story.

Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.
