***SPOTLIGHT REVIEW***Echo Falls by D.J. Larkin
Have you ever read a book where the main character was a writer and you wanted to know what they were writing? This is the story that the male lead of the vacant hearts series "wrote" how fun is that? Now here's the big thing these book are totally separate so there's no need to have read the other series. There's no crossover of characters in fact it's not even the same genre. Understand? Ok.
Emily is in a terrible mood these days, forced to move away from everything and everyone shes ever known into a town so small it's barely a point on a map. As she starts school no one will talk to her because of her "different" look and at home she learns that her boyfriend is dating her best friend so all those amazing friends she left behind will never talk to her again.
Out of the dark there's gotta be some light right? As she explores her new surroundings she finds a waterfall and behind it she finds a secret that will change everything for her, hopefully for the better.
Daniel is the boy that changes so much for her at a time when everything is hopeless and lonely. But all they have are their dreams, because as much as she wants him to be real he isn't. But what if that's not true and there's a way to bring him back? What happens after is where the story really begins.
Emily is a typical teen where everything bad that happens is the end of the world and she knows everything or at least she thinks she does. At the beginning that was her, but as the story moves forward you see her maturing and becoming more of a grown up and rather than following the crowd like she did in LA she becomes her own person.
The story is interesting moving forward at a fast pace but not so fast that you feel like you are missing something. It was one of those books where I was in bed saying just one more chapter every time I got to the end of one until it was midnight and I was forced to go to bed. A great read I definitely recommend!
