Synopsis:

Theo and Paige are desperate to forget the night that tore them apart. But someone is playing wicked games with them to make them remember…

Theo’s always been impulsive. But telling Paige how he feels? He’s obsessed over that decision. And it’s time. Tonight. At the party on the riverbank, under the old walking bridge, site of so many tales of love and death.

Paige has had a crush on Theo since they first met, but she knows her feelings are one-sided. She’s trying to move on, to flirt. A party at the river is just what she needs. Except a fight breaks out, and when Paige tries to intervene—Theo’s fist lands in her face.

All Theo and Paige want to do is forget that fateful night. But strange events keep drawing them back to the bridge. Someone, something is determined to make them remember…and pay for what they each did.

*Subject to change*

Opening Sentence: Theo April 4:

“I stay in the car because I’m not welcome at the door.”

Musings:

A twisted romance that crawls over your skin and turns everything you think you know on its head. Theo and Paige are the best of friends until one night when things go awry and then they are simply not anything anymore. However, evil soon drags them back to the bridge where it all ended in a mix of visions and other terror and the only way for them to let go of their demons may just be with their working together.

I fell into this book with unbidden music playing in my ears. Music that made me feel off and twisted and at times angry (seriously one major part of this book made me so mad). This book got me in the mood for October with its dripping paranormal terror ripping me towards adventure. But it’s characters are what really drew me in.

Theo:

A boy with ADD who can’t sit still and is always full of energy (often putting that energy into uses from anger ending up in bad situations).

Paige:

A geeky girl with anxiety who doesn’t know quite where she fits in in the world.

Together:

They balance each other out, but sometimes it isn’t always for the best.

Then there is Theo’s “fun” uncle and a teen paranormal investigator adding some spice into the mix.

Perfect for the coming months fall months We All Fall Down will creep you out and entice you into its dark pages where evil lurks within the bridge.

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think of We All Fall Down down in the comments.

-Till next time!

  1. Hmmmm this book sounds interesting…. and I’m not really sure if that’s a good thing! I think it could easily be problematic, and I could definitely see it being intriguing, but I think I’ll pass (at least for now) because I can’t see myself being able to get past the premise.
