Sometimes you need to lose something before you can find it
This is a book about friendship, un-friending, facing your demons in the closet and accepting change. It is the collective story and individual stories of Will, Cat and Pen as they go through ten years of their lives; sometime they go together and sometimes apart. This a story where the dialogue between the characters is witty, poignant and sometimes dismaying. This is the story of characters that are believable, well defined and approachable. This is a story for people who have had dear friends in the past and who have dear friends today. In Falling Together, you will take a journey with Will, Cat and Pen; it is a journey we have all lived in some way, shape or form. It is a journey about friends. This book is a journey worth taking.

Falling, falling, falling
This is one of the most unorganized, or maybe I should say over-organized, books I believe I've ever read. There is too much information and over-explaining about insignificant events that have nothing to do with the flow of the story. Not only was I irritated by the nicknames of the characters, their personalities were irritating as well. There were way, way too many parentheses and brackets, causing the continuity to be disrupted and too choppy. All in all I didn't like Falling Together and call it a "falling failure."

I felt that this book would be a nice summer read at the beach. It flowed easy, there were not too many characters, it had a nice but expected ending. The fact that all the characters except Jason were sooo nice, he was nice too, just a bit of a jerk, was a little unreal. Most people I feel are nice, but not that sappy. I had just read a fairly heavy read and this was a nice next book.

I had a very hard time reading this book: poor style, artificial characters, boring story. I felt like I wasted my time. Would absolutely not recommend.

Marisa de los Santos always does a great job with her characters, you care about them from the very beginning and can picture them clear as day! I think that's a great talent. I've read a few of her books in the past and will continue to pick up anymore that she writes!
