THE WAY WE FALL by Megan Crewe

“This is what we do. We make tea and read books and watch people die.”

When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn's community, the government quarantines her island--no one can leave, and no one can come back. 

Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest. 

Because how will she go on if there isn't? 

THE WAY WE FALL starts slow, but just when you wonder when things are going to start moving, you realize you've been totally hooked for pages. Told in letters to a friend which can't be sent, it reads more like a journal, which provides a personal glimpse into the sickness taking over the island. The outbreak and subsequent response reads as realistic and totally possible in the scariest way. The nervousness the story instills sneaks up on you, and leaves you more invested than you previously imagined. And, oh, there will be tears.
