Nestled in the Pennsylvania countryside, Florence University frames an idyllic college world, complete with cute coeds and handsome jocks—not to mention plenty of booze and sex with virtually no responsibility. For three seniors approaching graduation, the vagaries of life have rarely been so terrifying. Film buff Ian is at a loss as to what to do with the rest of his life—or what to do about the football player he has been fantasizing about. Haile is an accomplished classical musician, a veteran violinist who is taking a break from touring to finish her education, explore her dream of becoming a singer-songwriter, and escape her controlling mother. Casey is the handsome football star whose seemingly perfect existence masks an unsatisfactory love life and an inexplicable restlessness for something … more.

Drawn together by their struggles for identity, the three students form a fateful friendship that will change the courses of their lives forever. Sexy, fast paced, and layered with intimate insight about life’s most formative years, The Fall is a compelling coming-of-age story about what happens when we are forced to confront who we are and who we want to become.

    " Insightful handling of college aged angst and the social pressures imposed by our peers and our families. I couldn't stop reading until I was finished in the wee hours! "

    " I found the Fall to be hard to care about at times. Right off the bat, the style was a bit hard to get into, how it didn't always clearly identify who was speaking, but I caught on. It was an interesting idea to try but I feel it failed. The plots, I guess, were of college kids leading interlaced lives, making friends, coming out, finding yourself against your parents' ideals...and those sort of worked. The story of the college professor and his secret lover was interesting until it was made not to be. The situations were a tad implausible for me. All that being said, I did enjoy portions of it, and the characters were interesting, although so much had been left out of them to make me wonder for more, it was odd that the author then sort of tacked on wrapping their suggested futures all up in a bow. Casey's last minute switch? unnecessary and too sudden. Ian's doing what? Where now? Halie's mom said what? Something about this didn't ring true. "

    " I totally fell for The Fall. Such beautiful writing, such engaging characters, and a nice little revenge plot that had me cheering. This view of the college lifestyle is one of the more realistic I have read. My only complaint is the awkwardness of Eva's dialogue. It bordered too closely to ebonics. But, there wasn't a focus on her as a developed character, so I will forgive that as a small mistake and still reward this engrossing novel its full five stars. It just goes to show that "rich people/white people problems" can still suck pretty hard. "
