Falling From The Sky

Falling From The Sky - Nikki Godwin 2.5 stars, rounded up for great writing

Overall, this is a sweet and emotional story. I had some issues though. There were some timeline glitches/foggy-ness. And while Ridge lost his father, there's also a whole lot of teen angst and poor decisions. I also wanted more resolution with his surviving family. They didn't actually appear in the book, but they had a huge influence on the way Ridge interacts with others. I'm not pleased with how the others are portrayed or how Ridge treats them, but there's no way to go into that without spoilers.

Micah is adorable. He's fantastic, and I love how he loves Ridge. He was exactly what Ridge needs. I'm not convinced Ridge is who Micah needs.

The writing in this book is fantastic. I like how the author creates vivid descriptions without over the top metaphors or superfluous phrasing. I'll be reading more by Godwin.
