Summary (from goodreads):
From the author of Cracked Up to be and Some Girls Are comes a gripping story about one girl's search for clues into the mysterious death of her father.
When Eddie Reeve'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 anything 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?
I loved Cracked Up to be and Some Girls Are (Courtney Summer's previous books) and this one was no different. Eddie's father kills himself one night and she has no idea why he did it. She keeps looking for answers to explain his death but never seems to get anywhere. That is until Eddie goes to the warehouse where her father committed suicide to find Culler there. Culler was a student of Eddie's father. He respected him so much and would like to more than ever find out the mystery of his death as well. So Eddie and Culler go on an adventure, looking through his pictures and finding the places that they are taken of. But sometimes it's better not to know the truth...
Fall For Anything, just like her other books has the same sarcastic tone and heartbreaking story plot. I couldn't put it down even though I was reading it sometime in the middle of the night. And when I turned the last page and read the ending paragraph-I wanted more, I still do. And I know Courtney Summers will continue to impress her readers with future novels because she has so much talent.
Will I reread it?
Yes, I have actually been thinking about reading it soon. I find myself thinking about Eddie sometimes and find the urge to pick up the book again. I have to say, though, that Eddie's name was a major highlight of the book for me because I love girls names that sound like boys names. I don't know why, don't ask me, but I just do.
