The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

Summary:(from goodreads) When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn’s community, the government quarantines her island—no one can leave, and no one can come back.Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest. Because how will she go on if there isn’t?
Review: I thought this book was a pretty good portrayal of this type of situation. Although I did think there were a few things that were kind of annoying. I was really annoyed by how things happened with Drew. I wish more was said about his part in the story. I really liked Kaelyn as a character. Her thoughts and feelings about everything that was going on were really realistic. She tried to be strong even though she was scared of what was happening. I didn't really understand what happened with Leo though. The fact that the story was told through diary entries was awesome. I always like stories that are told in that format. It really leads to a good connection with the main character. Overall, this is a good apocolypse type story.
