Her friendship with him has turned into something she cant control, and hes the reason Jackie lost track of her best friend, Ellie, who left forno one knows where. Now Ellie has been missing for months, and the police, fearing the worst, are searching for her body.

The plan is to fall out of love, and, just as she hoped he would, Marcus falls for the new girl in town. But something isnt right about this stranger, and Jackies suspicions about the new girls secrets only drive the wedge deeper between Jackie and Marcusand deepens Jackies despair.
Then Marcus is forced to pay the price for someone elses lies as the mystery around Ellies disappearance starts to become horribly clear. Jackie has to face terrible choices. Can she leave her first love behind, and can she go on living with the fact that she failed her best friend?
The synopsis to this book completely grabbed my attention with that first sentence. You already know that this novel isnt going to be one of those easy-peacy reads, and those kinds of books can be really, really good. Also, I love this cover. Its simple but I feel like its a bit haunting in a way. Regardless, I cant wait to hold How We Fall in my hands!
What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
