ARC REVIEW: Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts
Tumble & Fall
by Alexandra Coutts
Expected publication: September 17th 2013
The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that’s left? Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.
MY THOUGHTS: 1 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
While this is set against the backdrop of a possible end of the world, this fact has little to do with the actual plot of the story…not that there is much of a plot. Unfortunately, the world-ending scenario was the one that drew me in to the book, so I was highly disappointed when I read half of the book and nothing of note had happened. Add this plodding storyline to a cast of characters that are vapid and hard to tell apart, and you can see why I couldn’t finish this book. I had high hopes, and sadly they did tumble and fall.
