Fallen Crest High by Tijan
“People are snakes, you just have to figure out their different colors, but they’re all the same. Everybody wants something.”
I read Fallen Crest for the first time over four years ago and felt the need for a refresher! I never finished the series and wanted to get back to it, but needed to start from the beginning again. This is about teenager Sam whose mom dumps her dad and gets a newer richer man. The downside of this is Sam moves in with two stepbrothers who hate her, and who dictate all the social rules in their town.
I can’t say much more than that without spoilers, but this is a guilty pleasure soap opera story you don’t want to miss out on! Filled with angsty teens, gossip girls, alpha males and so much family dysfunction you’ll think your own family is normal! And I love every second of it! Seriously though, if you need a reality escape, this is the book for you.
