Alexa S. - I just recently read No Place To Fall. Growing up in a small town, I kind of had a similar experience as Amber did (though not with all those tough issues she had to face) in terms of people talking about me and unable to mind their business. This helped me really relate to her, and once I understood that this was a no judgment, “truthful” account of what happened to her (complete without 100% happy endings), No Place to Fall was a worthwhile reading experience.

Janelle Fila - Wow, this sounds like a really interesting read. I love YA stories that hit on “heavy” topics, especially if they can have an open conversation without coming across as preachy. And man, coming from a small town, I found myself relating to this character already! I wish I’d had a book like this to read when I was growing up, contemplating chasing after the dreams I really didn’t feel that I was “good enough” to accomplish. Thanks for sharing this story, definitely going on my to read list!
