Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers

When Eddie's father committed suicide, he left a giant hole in her life. Eddie's mother is barely functional; she rarely gets dressed and has trouble with her own grief, let alone Eddie's. Eddie's best friend tries to be there for her, but he won't tell her everything that he saw on the night that her father died, and that's driving a wedge between them. So when Eddie meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father's, she's desperate to make some kind of connection with him as a way to keep her father alive. But as she grows closer to Culler, she could also be coming closer to a very dangerous situation.

One of my favourite parts about Fall for Anything was that I had no idea just how dark it was going to get. There were so many possibilities and they were all so possible and it kept me hooked and guessing. I was terrified that Eddie was going to get hurt (emotionally, psychologically, physically) but I knew that she had to hit some sort of bottom before she got better. I love Courtney Summers' writing - if you haven't read anything by her, pick up one of her books (three so far - check out her website here). Also, on a non-content note, I love the feel of her books - the actual, physical books. Well done with that, St. Martin's Griffin.
