Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.
Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.
Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie's face.
Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves "To Kill a Mockingbird" as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can't help but listen.
The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.
My opinion
Deeper We Fall was a book I start reading knowing nothing about it. It was a really nice surprise. It begins with a party, the party in which THE accident happened and everything changed. I really like that beginning since we get to see a little bit of the young characters before we see the mature, old ones (well, some of them never grow up… *Zack*).
Anyway, then the story begins two years later in the first day of college. It's hard for Lottie to be there knowing that her best friend is in home, not remembering anything and with her 6 year old mind. Good for her that she has her twin brother, Will, and his best gay friend, Simon (oh! I love them both).
Everything it's okay, but then her roommate's boyfriend arrives. Guess who he is? Right. Zack, the guy who convinced Lexie to go with him in the car. Lottie felt bad, really. I mean, what would you do in that situation? Oh! But that isn't all, nope, guess who else is there? Yeap, Zan, the (sexy) small brother that was driving that night.
So, in summary, Lottie's trapped in hell with two demons, one that is stupid and bad and bothers her with Lexie's accident (Zack) and the other (Zan) being comprehensive, listening and helping her, apologizing, being nice… She' confused and losing her mind, then the action begins.
Remember, Elizabeth fell for Mr. Darcy, Beauty fell for the Beast and Scarlet fell for Rhett. Girls love a mysterious boy with a dark past. Trust me.
First of all I have to say that all the book is narrated by both characters, Lottie and Zan. And that's amazing, because we get to know the confused, broken part of Lottie and the guilty, sorry part of Zan, who blames himself for all her misery and who has been in love with Lottie since high school. Lottie is a very good character, I find her al little-too-good and stubborn, but she handled things in a way a normal best friend would do, and even better, she was like THE best friend. She had also the good amount of hate for the brothers but stop herself before doing stupid things (yeah, you should know by now that I hate stupid characters and stupid things they do).
Zan (omg *sights*) is a hot, tall, bad boy looking guy that loves poems and To Kill a Mockingbird. He's very quiet and he keeps all for himself. He's really perfect… in his own imperfection, and that's what I love, he's perfect but he's not.
Katie, Lottie's roommate, is a sweet, kind of crazy girl. I really liked her, she was amazing… but the being Zack's girlfriend she ruined all, but well, I kind of get why she did all that she did, I really liked her as a character (but at the beginning I hated her… (maybe it was the pink thing). Zack… Zack is an asshole. Point. Period. I hate him, beginning in the way he treats Lottie and how he acts to Lexie's accident. A very believable and good character, I hate to know that there're a lot of douchebags like him.
It was easier to blame myself than to say that it was an accident that I had no control over. Losing control is one of the scariest things. That's why people are afraid of the dark. Or death. They're afraid of not being in control.
Trish, Audrey, Simon, Stryker… all good characters I didn't get to know that well but I get to love and understand them (I specially love this last one, beginning with his name, then his attitude and finally, his lip ring). The book is good, you read it fast, the narrations change and that makes it more interesting (personally, I loved more Zan's narration). The lecture is very pleasant and the vocabulary is easy to understand, I really loved this book and in looking forward to read the next one: Faster We Burn (don't you just love the title?).
If the sky starts to fall, I'll catch it for you, pretty girl.
Pretty girl, I will wait for you until the stars burn out.
Last but not least… I would recommend it to every teenager and adult (not to kids for sex obvious reasons) but it's really a book that I think everyone would like… maybe not love as me, but like at least, so it's a must, you mist read it(: Last but not least… I love Zan (fucking) Parker♥
