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 . . .

Mindi Scott! MINDI SCOTT! WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO READ YOUR BOOKS?!
Okay, phew, calm down, Anna. The point is, Freefall was awesome and I will read anything she writes from here on out. In fact, I plan on starting Live Through This in just a few days. You can see why she made it onto my Top 10 New-to-Me in 2012 list, yeah?
Well, Mindi’s a lady, obviously, but I was stunned by how authentically “teenage boy” the voice of this novel seemed. So, for starters, kudos to her there. Seth seemed so real as he worked through his struggles. I laughed with him and ached for him.
And the kudos keep on coming. Simply put, this was a beautiful story that was wonderfully written. Keeping this short and sweet: Read this book!
