Always on the lookout for another Twilight-read alike so Fallen by Lauren Kate caught my eye. This is an interesting read and VERY different from Twilight. It took me MOST of the book before I began to figure out the identity of the main character's boyfriend. It is an intriguing story, and it was a page turner for me. It is the story of Luce - she is a teen girl that is being sent to Sword and Cross, a school for students that have gotten into a large amount of trouble. She isn't even sure what she did - but she is being punished by being sent away. Her first day at Sword and Cross, she meets Daniel - a boys she is SURE she knows from somewhere. The story unfolds as Luce has this odd friendship/relationship with Daniel - one day he sits and talks with her, the next he is distant and even mean to her. There are a lot of unexpected turns and the ending is surprising. It truly leaves you anticipating the next book - which is scheduled to be released in September. I will say that there is a lot of swearing in this book - very unlike the Twilight Series, so I will be a bit more cautious in who I recommend it to - but it is a good read and one that will keep readers excited for it's sequel. If you are curious - check out the trailer HERE.
