Falling into Place
Author: Amy Zhang

Review Source: 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? Amy Zhang’s haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

I have never read a book like this before. It was really neat on the author wrote it where we have a narrator telling us the story about Liz and how she planned out her whole suicide. A very interesting narrator that is.

Liz didn't want to live anymore so she planned her car accident that would kill her. The way the author wrote the book you hear about her being in the hospital and then the author tell you stories from different character point of view and how they saw Liz in school and outside of school. She had some friend that she thought were friends and then she has a guy that is in love with her but never told her. Plus you see her mother having a hard time with her being in the hospital. Liz never thought her mother liked her.

This book is a must read for everybody that is thinkng about suicide or has lost a friend or family member to it. This story tells you that people are still thinking about you when you are gone. I loved it from the beginning to the very end. What a great book..
