After the Fall is just not for me. I read about 50 pages and then skipped through the rest. The main characters, Raychel and Matt (and Andrew), are quite whiny and annoying. They always are getting into arguments and thinking they are always right. Raychel’s “secret” isn’t that much of a secret. The story line is a poor girl is best friends with a rich boy and she falls in love with rich boy’s brother. They date in secret but then tragedy happens and everyone finds out! That plot twist was pretty good and unexpected. The plot twits was about 3/4 of the way through the book so it dragged on for a while. And the ending was okay, but super quick. But I do like the spelling of Raychel’s name! 😉

Seventeen-year-old Raychel is sleeping with two boys: her overachieving best friend Matt…and his slacker brother, Andrew. Raychel sneaks into Matt’s bed after nightmares, but nothing ever happens. He doesn’t even seem to realize she’s a girl, except when he decides she needs rescuing. But Raychel doesn’t want to be his girl anyway. She just needs his support as she deals with the classmate who assaulted her, the constant threat of her family’s eviction, and the dream of college slipping quickly out of reach. Matt tries to help, but he doesn’t really get it… and he’d never understand why she’s fallen into a secret relationship with his brother. The friendships are a precarious balance, and when tragedy strikes, everything falls apart. Raychel has to decide which pieces she can pick up – and which ones are worth putting back together.
