Deeper We Fall by Chelsea M. CameronMy rating: 3 of 5 stars
Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.
Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.
Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie's face.
Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves "To Kill a Mockingbird" as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can't help but listen.
The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.

"Someday things might fall into place and you'll realize it was supposed to happen"
Sometimes bad things happens and all we can see are the negative effect it brings, but with bad comes good..we just need to look closer..there are lessons we only learn when we are in a bad situation.
I struggled reading the first half of the book because it's full of angst and drama, it revolves around Lottie's hate for both Zack and Zan, Will and Simon being supportive brother and friend. I can't bring myself to like Lottie during the first half because I feel that she's being mean with Zan, Yes.. it is irresponsible of Zan to get into the car drunk (People..Please do not drink then drive!!) ..but lets not forget that it's Lexie's decision to stay with Zack..leading to Zan drunk driving them..so what I am trying to say is that ..it was an accident (I bet I would say differently if it happens to my friend ). I totally get why she's being like that.. but I can't help myself wanting to scream at her to move on (easier said than done..why am I contradicting myself..><)
Why Lottie irritates me during the first half:
Lottie to Zan :"Why am I even talking to you? I hate you"
Lottie to Zan : "You don't talk to much"
Well duh, I won't be talking much too if you treat me like that.
Contrary to me not liking Lottie..I do like Zan..really, really like him. He's been through a lot of things and I keep on wishing that he'll eventually find happiness in the end, I badly wanted to be a book character then I'll befriend him..and yeah eventually falls for him..no more Lottie and Zan..it'll be me and Zan forever...lol. I think I just sounded creepier than usual.
The good thing is I find myself liking Lottie around 60% of the book and thankfully till the end, I loved that everything turns out to be okay for both Lottie and Zan in the end plus they got wonderful friends that cares for them.
