    1. I m not one of those people who normally likes a simple coming of age story Phrases like that always make me think of Little House on the Prairie, or The Outsiders Not that those aren t fine books, I m just saying that it s not something that makes me think, YIPPEE I ll read that TODAY So keep that in mind when I say that this coming of age story was AMAZING.Tallulah formerly known as Debbie is on her way from Portland to Florida to help her friend Maeve when Tallulah s life implode She s essent [...]

    2. I like this book _ It s one of the first books that got me really into reading It interested me by the doggie on the cover And I m a sucker for dogs The story moves really well paced and the character is very realistic Tallulah is one of those rebellious teens that thinks she knows it all And she thinks she can do whatever she well pleases Or well, whatever Maeve does.So she travels across country to follow her not so good friend Maeve to Flordia Then come to find herself stranded in ohio, worki [...]

    3. I rarely read non fantasy YA books, but I read Tallulah Falls for my high school book club I was surprisingly hooked I could not stop reading the book once I started to read it Overall, the writing and pacing is fluid and engaging however, the plot is something I could not really relate with The protagonist is too unlike myself that I sometimes could not logically understand the relationships she had with the other characters Of course, I have a bias towards most things non fantasy.

    4. Tallulah Falls snuck up on me I honestly don t remember hearing about this book and it was random pick at the bookstore off of the bookshelf When I finally sat down to read it I wasn t sure what I would think I can tell you that I wasn t expecting this, a fantastic ride on a journey with a girl who needs to find her way And fantastic it was Straight away I wasn t sure about Tallulah She wasn t a character I liked much, as she wasn t very nice to others and kind of seemed like she mostly thought [...]

    6. Tallulah Falls is a book I had never heard of until my good friend Candace read it and highly recommended it to me She even bought it for me because she wanted me to read it so much Candace knows me well because I loved this book and I m thrilled she put it on my radar.Tallulah Falls really has lots of elements I love Tallulah ends up working in a veterinarian s office after being stranded in East Tennessee I live in East Tennessee and not many books take place here, so of course I loved that I [...]

    9. I d never heard the name Tallulah before I read this book, but I ve never forgotten it, and consequently never forgotten this character At first glance she s everything I dislike in a teenager, a hostile and rebellious runaway, but right near the beginning she saves a dying dog and it s impossible to dislike a person after that I picked this up because of the description of her finagling a part time job in a vet s office, and that does indeed dominate the story, interspersed with talk of the fri [...]

    11. I have to say I was fairly disappointed in this book I felt that at least one third to one half of the book could have been taken out While reading the procedures of treating various animals is quite interesting in the beginning, reading about it for 100 pages or so isn t.I thought that some of the relationship Tallulah had with the many characters could have been developed quite further The characters themselves could also have been further developed themselves They seemed very much monotone.Th [...]

    12. This was a good book Especially leading up to the climax, even thought the stereotype is that the climax and after is better.The only thing I didn t like about it was the ending after the climax I thought that the author rushed it, even if she was trying to surprise the reader I think I was surprised a little too much The scene where she has you worried came at an akward time and it seemed to me like she only did that one strange part because she had to close the book, and she didn t want to end [...]

    13. Tallulah Falls by Christine Fletcher 2006 Realistic Fiction, High School Young Adult So glad I was sick and had time to read this gorgeous novel One of those perfect coming of age novels packed with honesty, heart, and beautiful characters Loved that a portion of the book was set in a veterinary clinic and there were life risking actions going on as well Such a special book, loved the main character but also appreciated how another character was presented with bi polar disorder and how that can [...]

    14. This is the story of one girl s journey to find who she really is and what she s capable of even though she s been told all her life she can t do anything and is always in trouble When most young girls, people in general, would give up, Tallulah finds the inner strength to ramrod her way through the situation and does a fantastic job She begins to find herself and realizes just how much inner strength and character she really has.

    15. Overall, it was a pretty good book I liked the writing style It was personal but not overly sentimental It described things perfectly though the senses so that the reader could decipher the feelings themselves The story line was confusing at times maybe bc sometimes I skimmed but in the end, it was inspiring The characters are real and fun to read about Definitely recommend this book for teens.

    16. I adored Fletcher s book Ten Cents A Dance and approached this one with happy anticipation It, like Ten Cents, is well written and complete, but it just didn t have the same emotional punch for me While I felt a certain sympathy for the rag tag collection of characters in Tallulah Falls, I didn t particularly enjoy spending time with any of them and never really warmed up to any but the receptionist and the assortment of animals.

    17. This book is well written and parts of it are quite absorbing, and yet I didn t really like it Tallulah is not a relateable or likeable character and I couldn t make myself care about her over the top, self inflicted drama I LOVED Ten Cents a Dance comparatively, this was a big letdown.

    18. A teen runs away from home to help her best friend and gets stranded in the middle of rural Tennessee She gets a job at an animal clinic and alienates everyone around her For some reason, they still keep this moody teen around and help make her a better person Tennessee sure sounds nice, but I m not surprised since it gave us Justin Timberlake and Dollywood.

    19. I picked this up when I volunteered at the 2006 Pacific NW Booksellers Association convention I was assigned to help the author do a book signing She was really great friendly, enthusiastic This is her first book.I liked the characters, especially the protagonist Something about this book resonated with me, because I think about it from time to time I d read it again.

    20. Really liked all the references to Portland in this story This was a fun read that did not go where I expected it to go, which was great Parts of the story were very typical young adult and others were not and caused a bit of deep thinking and reflection Hmmm.

    21. My expectations for this book were really, really high because of how much I LOVED Ten Cents a Dance I didn t love Tallulah Falls, but I thought it was A OK It was a quick read I did wish it had been written in first person Tallulah voice instead of in third person.

    22. This book kept me reading Cute story I can see why it s aimed somewhat at teens Written by a part time vet at the vet hospital I take my dog to

    23. actually i struggled rating this a 3 or 4 star hard to choose 3 1 2 stars really i like to authors style of writing i will read of her books.

    24. i was seriously into this book, and i was loving it then, i hit the halfway mark and it started going all weird it was downhill from there i didn t like the ending.
