Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

Falling Into Place - Amy Zhang

I was ecstatic at the notice that I had won a copy of this book from Epic Reads, a wonderful website for avid readers of YA. The cover itself looked interesting and the story intrigued me. Or at least the blurb for the story intrigued me. So at the receipt of this book in the mail, I could not wait to open the covers and dive right in. Unfortunately I had to wait a bit longer than I wanted to read this, but I finally got the chance.


Now as for the tense this particular book was written in, I was a bit thrown off. I re-read the first few lines a few times due to it being different than what I am used to as a reader. But after that, I had no issues whatsoever with the book. It was wonderfully written, and apart from a few grammatical errors here and there, minor mistakes which changed no aspect of the merit of the story whatsoever, there is nothing bad to say about it at all.


Each character is connected, from the main character to the narrator to friends and family, even to the students who come visit in the hospital, the ones who do not truly know Liz Emerson but act as if they do. And every action that caused these connections is visited in each chapter. Along with talk of Newton's Laws of Motion, which fits so neatly in the story. 


I absolutely loved every minute it took me to read this book. And throughout, all I could think of was how the author's mind worked. This piece was beautifully rendered and could only have come from someone with a soul to match. I am keeping my eye out for future works by this author and cannot wait for what else she has in store.
