Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
Expected Publication: September 9, 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow Books

On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.

Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect?

Why I Can’t Wait…
It looks like an interesting read and like the sense of mystery around it. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!

  2. I've seen a WoW post of this book a couple of weeks before. It's not my usual read but it has an intriguing premise. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ohhh, it's going to be one of those ones you think will be harmless but will be super emotional. :( But, I'm a sucker for them so, yay!
