It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they're old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you're dead.

When sixteen-year-old Kaelyn lets her best friend leave for school without saying goodbye, she never dreams that she might not see him again. Then a strange virus begins to sweep through her small island community, infecting young and old alike. As the dead pile up, the government quarantines the island: no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Cut off from the world, the remaining islanders must fend for themselves. Supplies are dwindling, fatalities rising, and panic is turning into violence. With no cure in sight, Kaelyn knows their only hope of survival is to band together. Desperate to save her home, she joins forces with a former rival and opens her heart to a boy she once feared.

But as the virus robs her of friends and family, Kaelyn realizes her efforts may be in vain. How can she fight an enemy that's too small to see?

This book has to be one of the best dystopians of 2012. The author writes in such a way that allows the reader to fully immerse him/herself into the novel. The reader will love the main character, Kaelyn, for her intelligence and willingness to help others. Kaelyn's world is turned upside down in the space of one week. A mysterious virus sweeps through her small island town and begins to pick off the residents one by one. The environment created by the author feels so real that the reader will be able to picture all of the events and characters and really connect with them. Kaelyn is amazingly resilient. Her characters endures so much loss in the novel, but she still comes up fighting. The other characters the reader meets will intrigue him/her. The author has a way of making the reader miss the characters who don't make it to the end, a rare quality. The love interest, Gav, is brave and a survivalist, the reader will enjoy meeting him and getting to know him through Kaelyn. Kaelyn's family is complex and will feel like the readers' family not long after the reader picks up the book. Her brother and father butt heads over a few issues, Kaelyn's mother loves her children to a fault, and Kaelyn's uncle and cousin are special to them all. If the author did not create such dynamic and likable characters, this story would not be as fantastic as it is. The book is only about 304 pages long, but the reader will want the book to be far longer. There is an unbelievable amount of action, suspense, and romance packed into these pages. The characters are a delight to read about, the reader will actually care what happens to them in the novel. The author keeps the novel within the realms of realism, the reader will not be rolling his/her eyes over the plot and events in this book. This book is highly recommended to young adult/teen readers.

MINDBLOWN. BEST BOOK EVER. OMG HELP ME. Sorry for this lame review... i haven't reviewed for a couple months. maybe. NOTE: Might contain spoilers, read at your own risk. I may have not written all of the Good, Okay stuff but i hope this is good enough for a long review. The Good: The Virus There are a lot of fiction ideas of virus, this one is a part of the unique ones. I love how the Virus started to be just a tiny one that it can only make you have a fever. But somehow it evolved and can make you crazy! It's so unique and original! The Characters I love the characters! Tessa is so mysterious and clever, Kaelyn moves and thinks like a hero, Gav is nice and he's perfect for Kaelyn! Drew needs more info though. I don't know him that much. Once again, very nice characters! The Writing The writing is kinda confusing at first, but i love how it was written in Journal style. It's like you're actually reading Kaelyn's journal! The Mystery I like the mysteries because it will keep you wanting and looking for more info about the Virus, on when did Drew go or did he die? Or if he is with Leo on the ferry? and a lot of things! IT KEPT ME WANTING FOR MORE! I NEED THE SECOND BOOK! The Gang I love how Quentin and the other members left their original group with Gav. It just added more ideas and scenes and SUSPENSE! Like when they try to burn down houses, stealing and etc. More suspense, better book! EVERYTHING! The Okay: Meredith Meredith is cute, but sometimes she's very annoying like the part when in the middle of the night she wanted to get her stuffed toy that was left inside of Tessa's house while they moved to Kaelyn's uncle (which is Meredith's dad). I mean i know she's a child but there are more important things than a stuffed toy.. sigh.. The Bad: There are only just little problems and it's not much of a big deal. So i think I'll just leave this part blank except about this excuse.

The Way We Fall is set in a society much like our own. Kaelyn lives on an island, goes to school, and has friend troubles just like any other sixteen-year-old girl. When she finally feels as if she should take control of her life, her world crumbles around her. A deadly virus begins to make its way through the households of her hometown, leaving them stranded and cut off from the rest of the world. People panic. Food runs short. Loved ones die. The Way We Fall is told through Kaelyn's journal entries to her friend. Every day is a new entry that is our only lifeline to her island. Kaelyn has to learn how to become the person that will survive. She fights for those she loves and overcomes the obstacles before her. Watching Kaelyn grow is heartbreaking and encouraging at the same time. Then we meet Gav. A former foe becomes the closest confidant, blossoming into a love that will bring tears to your eyes. Gav is a strong character that takes a stand and works to help all those in need, even if that means sacrificing himself. Gav and Kaelyn's relationship grows strong despite all odds. I loved watching them together, working, helping, and loving with wisdom beyond their age. Megan creates a terrifyingly real world, making you rethink everything you may know. The first book in a dystopian trilogy, Kaelyn's story will grip your heart and leave you begging for book two!

3.5 stars¿The Way We Fall¿ starts out as a journal Kaelyn is writing to her former best friend Lee. Kaelyn lives on an island off the coast of Canada and Lee is on the ferry to the mainland where he will proceed to NYC to pursue his dancing goals. In Kae¿s journal entries we discover that a strange virus has appeared on the island and it¿s killing the inhabitants. The island becomes quarantined and life changes for Kaelin and everyone else on the island.I honestly thought when we got to the virus portion of the book, that it was going to turn into a zombie story¿thankfully it didn¿t! I really enjoyed the whole story as journal concept. We got a glimpse into Kaelyn¿s life when all was ¿normal¿, relatively speaking. We learned the purpose of the journal and what Kae¿s goals were with the journal. It provided a well-rounded view of Kaelyn.The virus portion of the story was surprising in that there were a group of community minded teens who established a way to help the community and did it without prompting from anyone. There was also the usual group who were out for themselves¿but it was Gav¿s group which proved so hopeful.My only real complaint was the ending. Honestly, the story had been so thoughtful and complete up until the December 19th entry. It felt like the author wasn¿t sure how to wrap up the journal and this seemed like the best option? The book was so good otherwise and I felt cheated on the ending.

Written in diary form from the main character to her estranged friend, Leo, the novel chronicles the spread of an epidemic in a Canadian island that becomes quarantined and isolated from the outside world. The disease starts with a cough and scratching, includes a stage where social inhibitions are diminished and ends in death in almost all cases. While medical teams are scrambling to understand the illness, other citizens are either mobilizing to help or forming gangs to loot and terrorize. Conditions continue to deteriorate on the island throughout the book. Despite all the suffering, romance and friendship still manage to bloom for the main character. Reminded me a bit of Pfeffer's Life as We Knew It.

The Way We Fall wasn't what I expected; I figured there would be more to the story. I love dystopian stories, but this wasn't really one, and it was my fault for thinking it was going to be one. A deadly airborne virus strikes an island, and starts wiping out humans. Those who contract the virus start itching, and then a few days later start coughing. Next, they feel an uncontrollable urge to be social, and try to get close and friendly with everyone. The final stage is paranoid hallucinations, and then death. The government, once it realizes a quick cure isn't happening, decides to quarantine everyone on the island. Kaelyn, a 16 year old whose dad is a doctor at the island hospital, describes what happens in the ensuing days and months, through a journal written to a boy, Leo, who left the island before the outbreak. I enjoyed it, but kept waiting for something more; a breakthrough revelation leading to a cure, a rebellious break for the mainland (which was hinted at), or people doing crazy things to prove they are alive. Even though I thought I wanted that, the book is actually better because it doesn't have those predictable events. I'll definitely read a second book if there is one, just to find out if the virus did make it to the mainland, why the ferry is being allowed out to the island, and whether the romance between Kaelyn and Gav continues. I like that the author was from my home town, Toronto, Canada and wondered whether, in her mind, she was picturing Centre Island or one of the other Toronto islands when she wrote the story.

This book was so good! I am a zombie lover personally, and whilst this book isn¿t specifically about ¿zombies¿, it is about a killer virus that is wiping out the whole island. Which is close to zombies. Kinda.The thing I really enjoyed about this book was that so often in these types of apocolytic stories where people get sick, and crazy and are dying, there¿s always SO much focus on the sick people. This story talked of it, but really the focus was on the healthy people in Kaelyn¿s life which made it really emotional, especially since it truly highlighted the acts of desperation she would go through just to make sure those close to her were safe, including putting her own health at risk.It really made me seriously question ¿what would happen if this were to take place?¿. And as far fetched as you may think this is, the book is written in such a real way. Think swine flu. Except with this virus, there is no cure, doctors are scratching their heads and it¿s highly contageous. It¿s virtually a death sentence if you catch it. Hey, it could happen!Written in a diary format from the perspective of teenage girl Kaelyn, she is writing this diary to a friend of hers she has not seen for a long time, Leo. A guy that she actually once loved, but he didn¿t recipriocate. Instead, he fell for a girl named Tessa. Who ends up being Kaelyn¿s closest friend in the book. Leo is living in New York and Kaelyn writes her journal to him as a way to let him know what happened in case something ever happened to her. Seeing as all communication in and out has been hampered, it¿s one way for her to get her truth out.I really enjoyed the writing style, especially as we see Kaelyn¿s mental health detiorating. It really shows in the diary entries, and I thought this was really very clever.I loved the characters also, especially Gav who I really want to know more about. He was quite private and mysterious and not the talkative, open type. But I feel there¿s more that we¿ll find out about him later.Whilst reading this I didn¿t realise the book was the first in a series admitedly (as this wasn¿t on Goodreads at the time), and I thought the ending was quite abrupt since I ended up with more questions and it finished us on a cliffhanger note. BUT. But. Megan Crewe has confirmed that The Way We Fall is in fact just the first book in a trilogy and I cannot express how much this makes me smile, because it¿s such a fantastic story.Highly enjoyable and easy to read!

I found this story to be rather¿boring. A horrible word I know, but I think it¿s just because people getting sick and dying off without any real action isn¿t interesting to read, at least to me. The story moved rather slow and the plot wasn¿t fast paced¿I was able to set this one down and completely forget about it.The fact that The Way We Fall was written in journal/letter form worked for it. If it was written differently, I think it would have been more boring and flat than I already think it was. Or maybe having it written in journal/letter form is what made it boring? I¿m not sure. Reading about day to day things is rather boring like cooking, bathing, and such. I do understand that when you are going through a disaster or disease is sweeping and killing people, these things become important. No matter how important they are, they aren¿t fun to read to me.The characters weren¿t too special to me and didn¿t stand out. If you have great characters, even if I find the setting and the theme of the story not for me, I generally enjoy the book more. I wasn¿t feeling any emotions with horrible things were happening.I will admit that I¿m rather curious as to how this series is going to continue just because of how it ended. I¿m curious enough to ask someone who ends up reading book number two, but not necessarily reading it myself.

So there is a disease spreading in a geographically isolated community, an island. The setting is perfect for an apocalyptic event. Kind of like how an abandoned summer camp is perfect for a horror movie. Gradually the island is cut off from the rest of the world and as the title suggests, not so gradually society unravels. On the island, there are some people who step forward and want to help take care of others and there are some people who decide to take advantage of the unprotected. There is never any true starving in this story ¿ definitely going without; but, because of the disease, there is sadness and death. The author weaves in issues of race and sexuality but she does this so covertly that it is not too preachy. Perfect for a young adult book. Just the facts and the readers can make up their own minds. I am guessing if a reader is not interested in these issues or perhaps, comes down on the other side of the political coin than me ¿ that reader would still enjoy the story, that is how subtly it is written. One of the characters is gay and his parents are disappointed in him; when the boy¿s sexuality is discovered there are consequences for the entire family. Several of the characters are mixed-race or a race that is not common to island; very subtly the issue of ¿difference¿ is addressed. The story begins very slowly, so slowly that I initially put this book down and decided not to finish it. But eventually I wondered what happened with the characters and well, I felt guilty for not following through, so I returned. The fist 80-90 pages (up through about the first 30%) are slow, not badly written just incredibly slow with no action. Crewe sets the atmosphere and introduces the readers to the characters. I strongly suggest that if you plan to read this book, you just accept that the beginning will be slow going. The lack of action is compounded by the method of storytelling. The main character is writing a letter to a friend, but the letter turns into a journal. I love survivalist themed books and movies. I don¿t care if the enemy is a virus, the weather, zombies, corporations, a government or another country ¿ I love this sub-genre. And this book fits directly into what I love. So why could I not get into the first 80 pages of this book and why did I ultimately rate this book with just three stars? The beginning of the book has no action, nothing is happening and the journal format is a dry and removed way to experience the story. I kept thinking ¿ haven¿t I read this story before? Then I realized in a way I had read this story before when I read Life as We Knew It which is young adult apocalyptic themed book told by journal. Each book has very similar stuff. Teen-aged girl, has issues with both her parents, witnesses an event that leads to society¿s breakdown, we are treated to the before the event and the slow unraveling of society. The young girl likes to go scavenging in empty and abandoned homes. She takes on the responsibility of helping and caring for people. Where the books differ, is the event and the perspective. The Way We Fall involves more characters outside of the main character¿s home and so the reader is able to see more of what is happening in the community. So is it worth reading The Way We Fall if you have already read Life as We Knew It? I don¿t know, if you are a fan of the genre than yeah and I do think Crewe wrote a better story than Pfeffer. The main character in the Way We Fall is much more likeable and less whiny. The plot is less depressing in the Way We Fall compared with Life as We Knew It. The story ends with hope, but it is not resolved and there is room for a sequel. Will I read it? Probably, will I rush to buy the sequel the day or month of release? Probably not. There are slight references to sex and sexual activity, but nothing explicit. There is some kissing scenes. I can see this book being appropriate for kids aged fourteen and older. flag

Outbreaks are scary. Really, the entire concept of a viral contagion that spreads quickly, and with no cure, is just about one of the most frightening things out there. Whenever this has happened before throughout history, it's resulted in the deaths of hundreds, or even hundreds of thousands, and the worse part is that people are virtually powerless against viral plagues.This concept is explored in The Way We Fall, the first book in a new young adult dystopian series by Megan Crewe. Much like in the typical exploration of the concept, a plague suddenly appears and quickly surges through mankind, contaminating countless people, including our narrator, Kaelyn. Kaelyn, along with everyone else on her home island, is quarantined, and Kaelyn is left to struggle to survive and deal with the loss of family and friends.Told in a diary-style format, The Way We Fall captures the emotions of crisis, along with the drama of survival and loss. The diary format offers an interesting look into Kaelyn's mind, and her personal struggle with understanding what is happening in the world around her and most importantly -learning to accept the world as it comes crashing down. While this approach allowed for a highly personal and complex understanding of the main character and the issues in the novel, it still had its drawbacks. There weren't really any other developed characters in the story other than Kaelyn, though she talks about her lost and new loves, plus there's a serious lack of dialog. But I'll admit -I can let this slide because the writing was incredibly intriguing and offered a unique exploration of a commonly-explored topic. I blazed through The Way We Fall. Even though it breaks a lot of the rules, it's an excellent and compelling exploration of human survival, love and loss in the face of crisis.

MY THOUGHTSABSOLUTELY LOVED ITKaelyn's family has moved from Toronto to an island that is a vacation spot where her father has a new job doing microbiological research. She makes new friends, finds her first love, (Leo), and in a series of diary entries and notes written to Leo who has moved off the island. There, a virus is taking over the island and when it turns deadly, the government closes off the area to everyone. No one can leave and they are forced to deal with shortages, illness and loss of communication to the outside world. It starts out with cold like symptoms, quickly proceeds to a high fever with delusions and then death. So with the world crashing down around her, Kaelyn must quickly adapt to survive.This whole plot would make an amazing Twilight Zone episode. They way it is written conveys clear imagery of a perfect world gone mad with characters that are all too real. Kaelyn is one of a handful that survives the virus and in the process loses her mother and later her father. In a sense it becomes almost like Lord of the Flies, where teens are taking on grown up roles, with some being good and others becoming self serving and cruel. Kaelyn also forms a tenuous relationship with Tessa, her rival for Leo's affections. Tessa is a perfect counter point to Kaelyn with her love of plants and both seem to be on the same level intellectually.I adored the way it was written in a diary form since it seemed much more personal with a journalistic approach to the story telling. Kaelyn is forced to face all of her worst fears along with the rest of the town. Of course, the guys split into two factions - good versus evil -- where one group helps out and the other devolves into thugs. Her brother is another interesting point which I would have liked to explore more, but his appearances are brief. There are some seriously sad parts to this book, but it also uplifting at the same time. This is one of those books that you must read in one sitting since you will be dying (cough) to find out what happens next.

Great book, not so great ending. I would have loved the ending of this book to be more developed as it ends rather abruptly.Written as a series of journal entries,The Way We Fall follows the events of a deadly viral outbreak on an island that subsequently gets quarantined. Great suspense, a smattering of romance, and plenty of detail.....until the end.Definitely worth reading for fans of this genre, just don't expect the ending to leave you completely satisfied.

This is not a book you want to read when you¿re sick. Unless, of course, you don¿t mind driving yourself crazy with fear. THE WAY WE FALL has a way of getting under your skin. The story itself does start off rather slowly, but once it takes off, and the virus begins wreaking havoc, you won¿t be able to put this book down.The story is told in journal form. Sixteen year old Kaelyn, who hasn¿t talked to her best friend Leo in sometime, decides to write to him daily via her journal. She details every moment ¿ before the virus hit, and after. Her father, who happens is a doctor, tries to contain it. But when the virus begins to spread throughout the island, the Government decides that it is best to quarantine the island; forbidding anyone from leaving or entering.Through Kaelyn¿s journal entries to Leo, you can feel the panic and the fear spreading amongst the island. It¿s heartbreaking because no matter how hard they try to fight the virus, only a few will manage to survive.I genuinely enjoyed THE WAY WE FALL. Crewe did a fantastic job of creating characters that readers will care about and a plot that will lure them in until the very end. I absolutely cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.

I can tell that right when I started this book, that the way it captured me that I knew I liked it. This book is so much different that what I've read in other books. Most books I read about this particular plot line, it's always about survival. In this book, it is just not only about survival, but about the life around it. I enjoyed reading the book, seeing Kaelyn's struggle for the her life and the one's that she loves.Kae is normal teenager caught in the midst of a terrible disease going around. One thing that is in this book that I like is how the main characters is connected to the virus. Kae struggles with lots of death, uncertainty in what she can do, and what her future will be like. I like seeing the frustration of Kae. It made the her much more likeable because she seems so real to the reader.Of course this book carries a plot line that I always enjoy reading. A virus spreading so fast, no one can stop it. The government blocking off the island from the rest of the world along with phones, internet, tv, etc. It was like the government knew there is no way to stop it but plug it up and let it die. I felt so bad for the healthy people just trying to survive. Ms. Crewe created such great tension in the book. I adored that way the people went crazy, breaking into stores, fighting over food and medicine. The animalistic traits came out in those fighting for their life. The overtaking of hospital, innocent people dying...Ms.Crewe's world of death and disease brought out a horrible nature in people. This is why this book so great to read. To be able to fill the shoes of Kae and see things through her eyes is amazing.The love interest in this book felt so right. Even though timing is all wrong (the virus and all) the little peace in this book of seeing two characters share of love through all of the death is perfect. I adore the relief of stress when they come together. It's as if everything is normal once again. No one savaging the streets, no killing over food, just love and innocence. I really like how these characters did some major growing up. They took things in stride in what needed to be done.This is a great book of a virus over running a small island with no one to help. Kae is amazing character who I hope I can be if ever such a incident were to ever occur in the real world. Dark times come in Kae world and she survived, can you?

It begins with an itch, and then the familiar symptoms of the common cold: sniffling, sneezing, and a tickle in the throat. When the virus finally takes hold, it causes those inflicted to seek out companionship, helping it spread to others, before it attacks the mind, driving the person mad before killing them.Sixteen-year-old Kaelyn doesn¿t think anything about the illness that seems to be spreading throughout her tiny island community. It¿s just a cold, or maybe an early case of the flu. But when her father, a microbiologist studying the disease, forces she and her brother to stop going to school because of how quickly the virus spreads, she realizes maybe this is more serious than she thought. As people start to die, the entire island is soon quarantined, completely cut off from the mainland. As the virus spreads, and the doctors race to find a cure, Kaelyn¿s world is turned upside down. People have started to riot and people she knows are dying: friends, neighbors and even her family. It¿s then that Kaelyn realizes the lengths to which she, a normally shy and withdrawn girl, will go to protect those she loves.The Way We Fall is the type of book that will stay with you long after you finish reading. It¿s really creepy and thought-provoking. There are no zombies, no power-hungry leaders, or anything else you would normally find in many of today¿s dystopian reads. This one hits especially close to home because it is so realistic. It reminded me a bit of the SARS and swine-flu outbreaks.When I first started reading the novel, I wasn¿t sure about it. It starts a little slow, and it took me a bit to adjust to the format of the book. It¿s written as a letter from Kaelyn to her friend, and one-time crush, Leo who no longer lives on the island. As the book progresses, she recounts in journal-style entries how the disease started and how it progresses. About fifty pages in I finally grew accustomed to the writing style and I was really drawn in. The characters, the setting and especially the situation are all extremely realistic. Don¿t be surprised if you find your skin itching while you read it.I recommend this one to fans of dystopian fiction; especially those looking for a new take on the genre.(Review based on an Advanced Reader¿s Copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley)

Depressing, morbid, and oddly fascinating. I had a difficult time with this book. The story is told in journal form written by Kaelyn, a 16 year old girl. She is writing to her estranged friend Leo. The setting is an island off coast of Canada. Kae is attempting to turn around her life, she is a shy girl trying to become more outgoing. Then disaster strikes. In the form of a virulent plague/virus. The book follows Kae and her family through the epidemic. We see people dying left and right. Not just nameless, faceless people, but people close to Kae. Friends, and family. She herself gets the virus but is one of a very few spared death. We come to know Kae very well via her writings in her journal. We see the raw emotion as she watches the horror around her. The death, destruction and lawlessness that erupts in the aftermath of the virus. A bright shining star in all this is her friend Gav. A fellow student who tirelessly works to aid others during the epidemic. The story is well written and easy to follow. I was able to 'feel' the emotions as Kae felt them. The characters had depth and strength, especially Kae's parents. The ending was unfulfilling, but I hope the author will clear things up in a second book. So much was left unsaid, so many of my questions left unanswered. How could an entire community rebuild after such a devastating loss? Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Title: The Way We Fall Author: Megan CreweGenre: Young Adult ThrillerPublisher: HyperionFormat/Pages: NetGalley eBookRelease Date: 1/24/2012 (subject to change)Kaelyn is trying to change, to be more friendly and outgoing. She wants things to be different this school year. But she never realized how different things would end up being. A virus, one that kills, is spreading across the sleepy little island she lives on. A virus that will change her life and the life of everyone she knows. The government quarantines the island, no one can leave and no one can come home. Food is becoming scarce, as are other supplies. Kaelyn must survive losing her friends, her family and her life as she knows it. Will things ever get better?Megan Crewe has crafted a taunt, page-turning thriller in The Way We Fall. Intelligently written and perfectly executed, it keeps you interested from the very beginning. Crewe takes the story of a deadly virus, in the vain of The Stand by Stephen King, and lets the reader experience it from a teenager¿s point of view. The reader experiences what Kaelyn experiences through her journal pages, written to a childhood friend. We feel her pain, her confusion, her sorrow and every other emotion imaginable. It felt like I was reading a young woman¿s heartfelt emotions poured out on paper. Crewe¿s writing is smart and believable; she pulls the reader into the story and the life of her characters. This was an extremely entertaining book. I always enjoy a well-written thriller, especially one written with such as amazing clarity. Crewe never falters in her writing, crafting a superb story. I will be recommending this book to not only my girls but also my librarian friends, as I believe it would make a great addition to any library.
