Danger “Danny” Danielle Warren is no stranger to falling. After losing an eye in a childhood accident, she had to relearn her perception of movement and space. Now Danny keeps her head down, studies hard, and works to fulfill everyone else’s needs. She’s certain that her mom’s bitterness and her TV star father’s absence are her fault. If only she were more―more athletic, charismatic, attractive―life would be perfect.
When her dad calls with an offer to join him to film the next episode of his popular survivalist show, Danny jumps at the chance to prove she’s not the disappointment he left behind. Being on set with the hottest teen movie idol of the moment, Gus Price, should be the cherry on top. But when their small plane crashes in the Amazon, and a terrible secret is revealed, Danny must face the truth about the parent she worships and falling for Gus, and find her own inner strength and worth to light the way home.
This is literally a story that ANYONE could relate to.
I feel like in life we all have those moments where we feel as though we are not good enough for something. Maybe a friendship. A job. A new career. A new relationship.
Whatever this “thing” is- it interferes with our self-perception and how we see ourselves existent within the world around us.
Danny’s situation reminded me of these feelings and emotions which I feel are reminiscent of the world today. These emotions can be so devastating and can create a personal prison that we have intricately woven for ourself.
THE SPEED OF FALLING OBJECTS was absolutely mesmerizing and touching in ways that show us that we are not alone in these feelings of insecurity. FISCHER creates such a believable character which really made this story touch a special nerve in my heart.
I cannot get over how entertaining this novel was with its rich textures of self-identification, romance, realization, and how we can defeat the odds if only we step up to the plate and believe in ourself.
This story was so good and I cannot rave enough about how different and relatable it was.
I feel like one of the most important lessons that this story taught me was that not everything is what it seems and that sometimes the most important person deserving of our love, attention, and devotion-

I’ve written for a circus, a graduate school, tried my hand at waitressing (I was terrible!), baking carrot cakes (I was messy but good!), and been lucky enough to ultimately do what I love -write.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our mostly wonderful (but sometimes vorpal) Vizsla. When I’m not conjuring a story, I love to kite-board, bike, ski or plan adventures with my two guys, who both make me laugh for different reasons and are the best partners in fun a gal could ever imagine.
