#BookReview: The Speed of Falling Objects by @nfischerauthor


Synopsis: 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.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This was one book that surprised me so much.  It follows Danger through going on a trip with her dad and wanting to show him that she can be strong and not be afraid of the world.  Danger lost her eye when she was little and I really think that she blamed herself for not listening.  Even though as us parents know that kids just don't listen sometimes.  The story really gets going once the plane that Danger was in crashes and she finds herself alone in the Amazon.  


I have to say that this was a very interesting story.  The main character of Danger only has one eye and that really messes with her ability to see depth as well as anything on her left side.  I thought that as character disabilities etc. go this was one that I hadn't seen before.  Overall, Danger not having vision in her left eye didn't really affect her trip though the Amazon.  I would have liked it to affect her more since it was a big topic in the story.  The rest of the characters were great.  I think the author did an amazing job with this cast. 

The story itself from start to finish was wonderful.  I liked how we started out learning about Danger and how we only get tidbits of how she lost her eye until almost the end of the story.  It gave it a slight mystery feel.   

Overall, this was one that had a little bit of everything in it from danger to romance, to one girl finding her own voice. 







"A perfect blend of adventure and romance, set in one of the most dangerous and fascinating places on Earth. In Danny's story, readers will also explore a complex father-daughter relationship and cheer on our heroine as she journeys not only through the Amazon but on a mission that will force her to figure out who she really is and what matters most to her.
