Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he seemed to find inspiration in everything he saw? And, most important, why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. Culler seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on...but are some questions better left unanswered?

Courtney Summers is deep. Her writing makes me want to crawl up into a ball for the rest of eternity. Courtney Summers has built a name for herself. I always expect so much out of her books and she always delivers. Books about death are everywhere, but none even touch Fall for Anything. With this book Courtney Summers out did herself and the rest of the Young Adult books about death. None of those books made me feel so much, as Fall for Anything did.
This isn’t my favorite book of hers, mostly because I can’t pick a favorite. Fall for Anything has that authentic feel that Courtney Summers has mastered. I wasn’t able to put this down, and I hope you won’t be able to either. Courtney Summers never fails to amaze me with any of her books.
