FREEFALL; Mindi Scott


  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Publisher: Simon Pulse; Original edition (October 5, 2010)


How do you come back from the point of no return?

Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend Isaac alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time where Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.

Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.

Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he’s ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth will soon realize he isn’t the only one who needs saving . . .

My Review

Do you believe it's to late to be the real you or to find out the real you? Freefall gives hope that there is more to a story then your past. You can over come and surpass your mapped out life. I enjoyed the refreshment of having a break from all the paranormal I have read lately. I do enjoy contemporary lit.  I really fell in love with Seth's voice. I didn't find it hard to read from a males perspective. It was quite refreshing.

    Rossetta and Seth may have had their own issues to over come but the issues they have created since knowing each other is what created a cascading read. Seth was the kind of guy I could see beating the odds.  The ending was what I would have expected and enjoyed. Nothing's good without a bit of drama. I am glad I didn't just let this continue sitting on my shelf.

This one sounds like a refreshing read.

My saying in life goes: "I'm not quitting, resting or keeping the status quo unless I'm six feet under."

I believe it is never to late to get moving and shaking in life. This book sounds like a journey worth writing and reading!!=)
