A review by sc104906
No Place to Fall by Jaye Robin Brown


Amber Vaughn is the “good girl,” though not really. The summer before her senior year, she spends time with her gbf(gay best friend), Devon, hooking up and getting high with hikers on the Applachain Trail. Her one hope is to become a famous singer. Actually, she is great at singing and it is the only time when she can forget about the crap going on in her life. Her sister and brother-in-law are terrible parents and drug dealers. Her father is a dirty rotten cheater, and her mother denies and avoids it through her obsession with church.

Amber just wants out of her small town and away from her family problems. She knows that her mother will never allow her to go to school to work on her music career. However, this dream is something she just can’t let go. Will, Devon’s older brother, offers to help her prepare for an audition to a music school. She is irresistibly attracted to him, even though he has a girlfriend (yada, yada, yada).

Amber is caught doing something she shouldn’t by her skivvy brother-in-law and is blackmailed into doing things she wouldn’t normally do. It’s possible that her brother-in-law may just ruin everything for her.

If you are looking for a standard piece of fluff, look no further. Characters do stupid things, actions are misunderstood, and there is a romance element.
