Review: Fall for Anything

Fall for Anything From the author of Cracked Up to Be and Some Girls Are comes a gripping story about one girl’s search for clues into the mysterious death of her father.

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he seemed to find inspiration in everything he saw? And, most important, why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. Culler seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on...but are some questions better left unanswered?

My Review:

Fall for Anything was a quick read with an interesting plot and characters.  The storyline had an emotional feel to it due to the subject matter.


Eddie Reeves is a fascinating protagonist for this story.  She is clearly grieving after the suicide of her father, Seth Reeves, and she really wants to know why.  She had never known that her father was unhappy in the life that he had been living.  Seth was a photographer, and once she meets a student of his named Culler, she begins to search for clues about why he did what he did.  This book is primarily focused on Eddie, her interactions with others, and her emotions after this tragic event.  She was an interesting character to read about.

Then, there are the two boys in this book, Milo and Culler.  I say two boys, but this is not really a love triangle.  Culler was Seth's student of photography.  He and Eddie meet because they both visit the place where her father died.  Culler is looking for answers just like Eddie is.  Seth really saw talent in Culler, and Culler feels emotions about losing him too.  I liked Culler for most of the book, but there are some things late in the story that change my feelings towards him.  Milo is the boy that has been Eddie's best friend since the two of them were in 2nd grade.  There are times when it seems like they have feelings for each other, but then she has feelings for Culler, and it seems as if he has feelings for another girl.  Once she finds out that he and the other girl are just friends, there is a hint of romance between the two.

There is a strong family component to this story since Eddie is grieving because of what her dad did.  It is clear that her mom feels lost after Seth's death.  Her mom's best friend, Beth, has moved into the house with them to help Eddie and her mom try to rebuild their lives.  It is obvious that Eddie does not like Beth, yet sometimes she seems to realize that her mom needs her friend there.  Her mom basically lives in an old coat that Eddie's dad owned, and it is clear that she isn't ready to let him go.
