    Perennial screw-up Tallulah might not be the well-behaved little daughter that her mom would like her to be, but nobody can say that she isn't a loyal friend. When she receives a cry for help from her bipolar best friend Maeve, Tallulah immediately leaves behind her family in Portland and takes off across the country to save her. But on her way to Florida, Tallulah finds herself needing some saving. She's stuck in some small town in Tennessee all because her ex-boyfriend robbed her and just up and left in the middle of their road trip. <BR/><BR/>Tallulah is wandering aimlessly down the highway, wondering how in the world she is supposed to find her way to Florida. When she stumbles upon a dying dog under a highway underpass, she feels compelled to save it, if only because that's what Maeve would want her to do. After bringing the poor dog to the local vet and begging Dr. Poteet to save the dog, Tallulah somehow ends up with a job assisting the vet. <BR/><BR/>Tallulah knows nothing about animals, but she's a quick learner and manages to earn her keep at the veterinary office. At the same time, she can't wait for Maeve to come and rescue her. In between phone calls to Florida and saving horses and human babies, Tallulah realizes that she's beginning to grow fond of the odd collection of people that work at Dr. Poteet's office. Maeve does return, but it's not exactly the return that Tallulah was expecting. The ending brings several surprises that will keep you hooked until the last page! <BR/><BR/>Christine Fletcher does a remarkable job in her first young adult novel, incorporating her experiences as a veterinarian. Animal lovers will particularly enjoy the several scenes focusing on Tallulah's connection with the animals she is working with. TALLULAH FALLS is a very touching story and Tallulah is an easy character for teenagers to identify with; she's brave, stubborn, and just trying to find herself.

    Christine did an amazing job. i absolutely loved the book, but was disapointed with the ending. i'm hoping Christine will make a second book and have kyle and tallulah end up together. i was hoping she would write a book based on tallulah's adventure finding her father like her and kyle had planned. WHY'D YOU MAKE TALLULAH AND KYLE DO THAT TO EACHOTHER???? i'd have given this book a 5 star except for the whole kyle thing.

    I liked until I read it

    This book is very close to one of the worst that I have ever read. The main character, Tallulah is very selfish and self-centered. Nothing seems to make her happy or go the way you want or expect for her. I found the ending particarly disapointing and unsatisfing. It seems that Tallulah's goals aren't reached and she hasn't changed that much or become more caring or grateful. I liked the plot, the ending was awful though and the main character was hard to relate to. Also, Christine Flecter's idea of how people in the south talk and act is severly lacking in truth.

    a good YA story

    'Tallulah Falls' is the story of Tallulah Addy and her spur of the moment trip cross country to help her friend Maeve, whom she knows is in terrible trouble. Tallulah first meets Maeve at a motorcycle convention and is immediately drawn to the charasmatic, free spirited girl. Maeve confides in Tallulah that she is bipolar, and that she has plans to change the world, which she dutifully records in her private notebooks. One day Maeve just up and disappears and a few days later Tallulah receives an email from her stating that she needs her help. She says she's in Orlando and needs Tallulah to bring her notebooks. No questions asked, Tallulah leaves her home in Oregon and sets out to save her friend. Tallulah encounters a lot of difficulty that she didn't anticipate. For starters, the guy she was travelling with just up and stranded her in the middle of nowhere, but not before he took all her money from her. Homeless, vehicless, and broke, Tallulah is forced to take a job as a vet tech, in which she not only learns a lot about vetinary science, but about human nature, and most importantly, about herself. The story is sad, uplifting, real and raw. It's geared for young adults, eighth grade and up, and the feelings that Tallulah struggles with are ones that most young women will find themselves relating to.
