Kaelyn’s town has come down with a mysterious – and deadly – virus. First, you’re itching and you cannot stop. Next, you’re acting like you’re friends with everyone. Then there are paranoid hallucinations. And lastly, you’re dead.

The Way We Fall is about exactly that: a falling civilization, hindered not only by the deadly virus, but by the healthy inhabitants inside doing anything it takes to survive – even if that means killing someone.

Kaelyn holds her own and shines as a brave heroine, risking her life to help those with the virus and her family. She sometimes breaks down, sure, but who wouldn’t when the town you grew up in is crumbling beneath you? I felt proud of Kaelyn and would definitely want her on my side, should a deadly virus ever hit my town.

The romance in The Way We Fall was wonderful and very appropriate for the circumstances. Gav was sweet and was always saving Kaelyn, which got annoying at times but was easily overlooked. He provided a shoulder to lean on and not once did I feel that their relationship was forced.

In addition to the great heroine, Megan Crewe’s writing really shined. The plot wouldn’t be anything without her intense, page-turning writing. She made you feel just how desperate the inhabitants of Kaelyn’s town were. Some of them going so far as to form a gang and horde all the food and medicine for themselves and even killing the sick.

Overall, I loved The Way We Fall and would strongly recommend it to anyone. Megan Crewe paints a fantastic story of what could very well happen someday and the story left me breathless and wanting more, but also scared to have more.
