Voting has closed over at Fiction Express for this week, so here’s what I thought about the latest chapter of Falling Backwards. Please be aware there are spoilers ahead for the chapter.
This week’s vote saw Leah making it up with Audrey and Jane, and coming to an understanding with Raymundo. I loved the new side of Raymundo that Leah got to see, and her whole shift in attitude – I found myself worrying far less about what she was supposed to be doing this week. I like the blossoming romance between Leah and Efrain, I can understand Leah’s confusion about whether she wants to leave him behind when her mission is over. I’m intrigued by Jane’s new friendship, I wonder if it’s going to become more important in the last few chapters. I must say I’m loving all of the little mentions of things from the time, like the Macarena this week, I keep getting pulled back to memories of my teenage years.
This week’s vote was a good moral puzzler, in the end I voted for the woman to make Leah and Julieta work off what they owe her.
