When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn's community, the government quarantines her island-no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.

Because how will she go on if there isn't?

Megan Crewe crafts a powerful and gripping exploration of self-preservation, first love, and hope. Poignant and dizzying, this heart-wrenching story of one girl's bravery and unbeatable spirit will leave readers fervently awaiting the next book in this standout new series.
Megan Crewe( finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband and three cats (and does on occasion say "eh"); she tutors teens with special needs; and-thankfully-the worst virus she's caught so far is the garden variety flu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I really loved this book. I found it very interesting. The main character's point of view makes it a page turner. I really don't think it's fair to judge a book on how it makes you feel. Judge a book on the fact that it MAKES you feel. You really feel the general mentality of the main character which is quite dreary and depressing because she's going through A LOT. Just to give you an understanding of the overall vibe of the book my favourite quote from it is: "This is what we do. We drink tea and watch people die."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realistic much?! An outbreak has started in Kaelyn’s tiny community and the entire island is under quarantine. A true epidemic mind you!? Remember SARS? The virus has killed off almost everyone on the island and the people struggling to survive have very few resources and very little hope. It felt real. The lock-downs, the symptoms, the paranoia the characters go through. *shivers* I love the viewpoint of this novel which is in the eyes of teenager Kaelyn as she writes letters to her best friend Leo. I’m not a big fan of letter writing when reading a novel because it makes me that more curious to the person that the letter is addressed to. To wonder if they received it as well. But Megan Crewe pulled that off extremely well and I got into the flow of the story quickly. How insanely creepy is this novel? It was just as bad as watching Contagion. My hope for a cure was what kept me reading. I just wanted them all to live happily and healthy and free again, but it wasn’t so because this was not the end. I believe it’s a trilogy so I am looking forward to what Megan has in store for Kaelyn. Being set in Canada is such a plus. There’s always something creepy when a novel is as realistic as The Way We Fall because you never know when it can actually happen. It can happen, that’s the scary part. Being out in that position you wonder if you would have the strength to be as strong as Kaelyn to survive? I sure hope so. Paranoia at its finest, The Way We Fall is chock full of drama, action, mystery and science. Just make sure to wash your hands right after :)
