John Fell loves his family and gourmet cooking, and feels appropriately tormented by Keats, his rich girlfriend from the right side of the tracks. A normal life - normal, that is, until he meets Woodrow Pingree one night by ramming into the back of his Mitsubishi. Suddenly nothing will be the same. A poor boy is now a rich one at an exclusive prep school. A woman who's no longer a girl enters Fell's life with long kisses and no promises. He's paid to be someone he's not with a name that's no longer his own. ''Your fate is already set; just lean into it,'' Fell is told. Only don't fall, Fell... don't fall.
Fell is a love story and a suspense story - the first in a series by M.E. Kerr. A strange incident on the night of the senior prom changes John Fell's entire life, leading him to enroll in an exclusive private school under an assumed name.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! It's an easy listen - the kind of book that you don't have to concentrate on to follow the story.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters in this book are easy to relate to. I found the imperfect mom refreshing and very realistic.
Have you listened to any of Ray Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. Ray Chase is one of my favorite narrators because the distinctive interpretations of his characters' voices make the books he narrates, very easy to follow.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reactions - it's just not that kind of a book.
Any additional comments?
Although Fell is described as a book for "young adults," as a "mature reader" I found the story compelling and the characters very true to life.
