Freefall by Mindi Scott
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: 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 . . .
I really enjoyed Freefall from the first sentence to the last. From when I first read the description, I was really excited to read it and had high expectations. Mindi Scott did not disappoint in the least.
I was really drawn by Seth's character. Freefall is about his journey after finding his best friend Isaac dead. Seth gradually starts getting on with his life. He starts doing things to move on like joining a new band falling in love. He came so far from the begginning. He was very realistic and relatable. He was sweet and you can't help but to feel for him every second of the book.
Seth and Rosetta's relationship was perfect. I'm not talking about a perfect relationship. No, I mean it is perfectly realistic and relatable. they argued, they laughed, they cried. There was lust, but more importantly there was love. They helped each other through and through. They were both a great deal damaged and hurt, and they helped each other heal.
Freefall is a story of grief. A story of death. A story of hurt and heartache and friendship. But most of all, it's a story of love and healing. A beautiful and haunting debut that should not be missed.
