The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe
‘The Fallen World: Book 1’ is a mash up of Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ and Susan Pfeiffer’s ‘Life As We Knew It’ and ‘The Dead and the Gone’. An incomprehensible illness ravages an island community as 16 year old Kaelyn keeps a journal of events. It is a dull tale of dysfunction, disconnection, narcissism and some compassion.
“I went into town today, and no one aimed a gun at me. Small victories.”
“The stun gun was lying on the dining room table. Because that’s what our life is now.”
