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 result of this week’s vote saw Jose agreeing to let Leah stay with the understanding that she would abide by all of their rules and that Rosa and Dulce would help ensure that she stuck to them. These new rules are certainly restricting Leah’s activities, and it seemed like Efrain isn’t going to do anything to help her circumvent them (though I was pretty pleased to discover that this was more to do with outside interference). This was really a chapter of discovery, we got to find out what had happened between Efrain and Zaira in the past, and more importantly what it was that Leah was supposed to be saving Efrain from. I loved all of the reveals, none of them were what I’d been expecting.
If I’d thought previous votes were hard for this book they were nothing compared to this week’s! In the end I voted for Leah to climb into the passenger seat and try to get Efrain to stop, though I’m still not sure that’s the best thing for her to do.
