What We're Reading: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Bella's Book Club is reading Fallen by Lauren Kate as our book of the month. We will be discussing it at our in-person meeting on March 3 at the Tecumseh Branch Library, and we will be discussing it online here shortly after that. Read along with us, and put your comments on the blog.
Here's a book trailer for Fallen:

Fallen has been optioned as a movie by Disney Studios, so we may see this book hit the big screen. Here's a plot summary:

There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.
