Book Review

Fiction Expresss Monday : Falling Backwards by Jenny Ryan – Chapter 8.

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.

The vote this week saw Leah and Julieta getting away with their shoplifting with Alba, the shop assistant giving them a lesson in how to apply their make up. I loved Leah’s reaction to the mid 90’s style make up, it brought back really vivid memories for me. I loved how tense this week’s chapter was, I really thought Leah was going to end up getting sent back to Canada so I was really relieved when Dulce and Rosa turned up at the airport. I did like the fact that Leah’s behaviour had consequences, and the way that the friendship between Raymundo and Leah has really developed over the course of the chapters so far. There still seems to be so much to happen, I think the final three chapters are going to be pretty packed.

I voted this week for Jose to agree that Leah can stay, as long as she promises to abide by Rosa’s strict rules.
