All Fall Down

I finished this book in one sitting. I’ll admit, I was expecting a book (and series) similar to her Heist Society series, not in content, but in style. In other words, I expected it to be entertaining, but perhaps not out-of-this-world amazing. But this book was pretty much amazing. I was so engaged in Grace’s emotional/mental turmoil. My heart hurts just thinking about it. Clearly, some major research (or maybe even a close personal experience) went into this novel.

Happy Birthday Calvin(s) & Hobbe(s)!

Synopsis
