Review: Freefall by Mindi Scott

FreeFall by Mindi Scott
Published by Simon Pulse


Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend, Isaac, alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time when Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn't wake up. Convinced that his own actions led to his friend's death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely. Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth soon realizes he isn't the only one who needs saving . . .How do you come back from the point of no return?

I really enjoyed this book. I have had it for a while and haven't got round to reading it but after my recent historical fiction/fantasy stint this lovely little contemporary book was a welcome breathe of fresh air.

I liked the main character of Seth because he has no airs or graces or pretences about him.. He is who he is, flaws and all and I enjoyed (it doesn't seem like the right word) seeing how he was trying to put his life back together after the death of his friend Isaac. I particularly liked his blossoming relationship with Rosetta and how their personalities balanced one another out well.

The main character I loved in this book was Kendall. The girl was quirky and crazy and totally adorable and funny in the way she dealt with her life.

The main story was nice I loved seeing how the characters grew as the story went one but for me if wasn't so much about the story and more about the characters and their interactions that made me like this book. I simply enjoyed seeing a snapshot into their world.

A fab debut and awesome book and definitely worth a read
