The Way We Fall

The Way We Fall
by Megan Crewe
New York : Hyperion, c2012
309 pages, young adult science fiction

It has been awhile since I read this one, so here is an excerpt borrowed from
It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you're dead.

I liked the idea of the story and I still do. It had so much potential that just didn't come through for me. The format is what bothered me the most. A journal narration I can handle, but a journal written like letters to an ex-friend/crush was quite annoying and unnecessary.
