Book Review: The Speed of Falling Objects

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.

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

What an emotional ride this was! This book had everything from plane crashes to a love story! The story follows Danny, a nearly 17 year old girl who is basically scared of everything. Danny has one eye due to a childhood accident that gets her bullied a lot through her highschool days. 

During a trip with her father in the Amazon, Danny’s plane crashes and she embarks on a huge adventure in which her father becomes the villain. 

The plane crash felt so REAL! I had to put the book down a moment to just take a breath. Nancy does a fantastic job of making you feel every moment. The character building was phenomenal. I loved that Danny was not held back through her adventure, even with one eye. I really felt all of Danny’s insecurities, anxieties, and growth. 

I really enjoyed this book tremendously, it had everything I look for in a story and I felt it was an absolute page turner.
