Review: The Art of Falling by Jenny Kaczorowski

Title: The Art of Falling
Author:  Jenny Kaczorowski
Publisher: Bloomsbury Spark
Rating: 5/5 Stars


For seventeen-year-old Bria Hale, image is everything. She’s a militant vegan with purple hair, Doc Martens and a permanent scowl. Kissing captain of the football team Ben Harris? Definitely not part of that image.

Now with each secret kiss, she’s falling deeper for the boy every girl at Oceanside High is crushing on. Throw in a few forbidden bacon cheeseburgers and she’s facing one major identity crisis.

Ignoring Ben should be easy, but when a flashy display of artistic spirit lands her in close quarters after hours with the boy she’s too cool to like, she can’t keep pretending those kisses meant nothing. With her reputation and her heart on a collision course, Bria must either be true to herself or to the persona she’s spent all of high school creating.

Source: I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion on the book; it's my true opinion only.

This book is a perfect romance for two people you would never think could ever match. EVER.
A jock and a purple-headed vegan? No way!
This story just goes to show that anything is possible and opposites really do attract!

This is a story about Bria and Ben. Ben is Abby's brother. Bria and Ben kiss, but they can't be together for many reasons. Ben is a popular jock. He's also Abby's brother. Abby is Bria's best friend. Best friends don't date their friend's brothers, do they?

Bria finds it hard to keep away from Ben. She tries distracting herself. But try as she might, she just can't keep away from Ben. And Ben can't stay away from Bria. They know they want each other, but refuse to accept it.

This is a story about love, friendship and being true to yourself.

I loved the characters in this book.

I really liked Bria. She's really good at art, and will help out no matter what. 

She is a true person, and although she tries to be the person she grew up to be, she ends up revealing what she really does like, who she likes, etc. 

Ben is a jock. He's cute, and funny. He is Abby's brother and this is how he knows Bria, as Abby and Bria are best friends. He can't stay away from Bria, and he keeps on hiding that he likes her, which I found adorable. 

Abby I found to be such a cool character. She is so funny, and a very good friend to Bria. 
At the end of the book, you will see how much of a great person Abby is. I honestly wish Abby could be my best friend.

I felt like I was going on a massive journey and like I was in the book. 
The general storyline was so addictive. 
I wanted Bria and Ben to admit their feelings, and just when they got close to revealing their feelings, they'd walk away, and I'd be like "NOOOOOOO!!"

The conversations were so believable. Nothing was cheesy and over the top. It felt natural.

The story is written in second person, and the chapters have a decent length.

The writing was clear and easy to understand. I liked how it was modern.

I could feel the heat between Bria and Ben. I was emotionally within the book when reading.

Straight away at the beginning of the book I was introduced to the characters, and the kiss happened, so I was hooked and it soon became an addiction.

The ending was a perfect ending and was so cute!

I really recommend if you are into contemporary romances.

Kaczorowski is an author to look out for! The Art of Falling is a fresh new story that will go far! 

Overall I gave this book five stars! I completely recommend this book to all! 

I hope you have enjoyed this review.

Happy reading =)
