How I fly
How I Fall by Anne Eliot
Impossible because she’s Ellen Foster. The beautiful, smart, and possibly fragile photography-girl. You’re Cam Campbell. The guy who plays football 24/7 with no life. But what if during junior year, you decide to finally try for her phone number—until this glitter-crazed new girl ruins your plan. Worse, the girl is Irish, awkward, and insists you and Ellen should become best friends—with her! Only, you don’t want to be friends with a human tornado, and you think Ellen might need to stay a crush. This is because after one interaction you’ve discovered Ellen Foster really is fragile. Your problems and secrets are too big for anyone to understand.

But what if the three of you wind up assigned to a group photography project, where rumors are already circling about the new girl being ridiculous? You know she’s nice but very alone, so you convince your crush to help protect the new girl. Suddenly, working on the project makes hanging out, texting, talking—and even high school—seem fun and completely normal when it’s anything but normal.

What if you kiss Ellen Foster and it’s perfect enough to make you believe in things you shouldn’t. You tell her secrets and share your dreams. You make the kinds of promises and create plans to be together that might be impossible to keep when you’re only sixteen and your parents control your entire future, but… WHAT IF YOU HURT HER?

My review
It 's a very sweet story, a Ya that does sometimes laugh and sometimes cry.
It's the birth of the first love between Ellen and Cam, two high school students really special. Ellen is a particular girl, born with a bad disease that paralyzes a body part but she does everything to be a normal girl, has worked hard to walk without a cane, not to understand her difficulties and her suffering. She has a great passion for photography. Cam is a guy who lives for football, is the quarterback of the school. He has always been in love with Ellen and decides to enroll in a photography course to be with her and find the courage to declare. Cam is a sweet boy, who struggles hard to love her, to make it clear to Ellen that his love is strong and true.
It 's a very realistic story, it is easy to identify with one of the two protagonists, it helps a lot also the fact that the story is told in alternating points of view of Ellen and Cam.
I loved everything about this book: the characters, the plot, the ending. It 's a very positive story, with the willpower you can do everything or almost everything......

Praise for How I Fall
“How I Fall captures exactly how a high school crush feels. You can have endless long days—days that feel exactly the same—and then in one moment a little thing changes, a conversation finally happens, and suddenly there’s a new friend group formed where relationships are suddenly ‘on’! I loved this book (How I Fall) and I’ve already read the sequel, How I Fly as ARC. You will laugh, you will cry and you will fall so in love with Ellen and Cam’s story.” ~Becca H. Teen book blogger.
“Anne Eliot writes the sweetest first kisses. She also does those book boyfriends you can’t get out of your head. Cam Campbell in How I Fall doesn’t disappoint, nor does the awesome first kiss.” ~Judith, I Love YA Fiction, Blog

HOw I fallHow I Fly by Anne Eliot
Over six months after an accident that broke her legs as well as removed her boyfriend from her life—because Cam Campbell left town and dumped her—high school senior, Ellen Foster, wants to move past her broken heart. She’s off to attend a summer photography workshop at a real university along with her best friends. Ellen’s determined to find a new love—or at least a summer boyfriend. In the dorm, she meets Harrison Shaw. He’s a handsome photography student, a charmer who likes her, and a perfect way to forget her past.

Ellen thinks she has everything she wants. Her summer program couldn’t be better. She’s half in love with Harrison Shaw, and she’s going after her next scholarship. But when she kisses Harrison, she can only remember how Cam Campbell used kiss her better, sweeter, and how he used to make her feel like she could fly…

When Cam shows up at the university it’s a shock, especially to Ellen’s new boyfriend. Cam’s distant, different and very afraid to hurt Ellen again. He asks Ellen if they could be friends despite the past and how they’ve both changed and Ellen agrees. But after all they’ve been through, can Cam and Ellen ever be just friends?

My Review
It 's the perfect sequel for How I Fall ....
Continue the story of Cam and Ellen. Next to them there are always Patrick, best friend of Ellen, very protective of the girl and the crazy and joyful Laura, the ideal friend. Cam is increasingly adorable but his history with Ellen will have many difficulties ......
In this book, fortunately, photography is very present
They're both amazing books, are really for people who love to read YA
