When I First Saw You #14

March 10, 2016

What is When I First Saw You?
When I First Saw You, or WIFSY for short, is a weekly meme created here on Sailing Through Books and co-hosted by Izel from A Bookish Flower and yours truly. It consists of sharing a first impressions of a book in the form of a made-up synopsis, so basically judging a book by it's cover yes. 

How does it work?

Every week, a new cover is chosen and is shared here at the bottom of the page. You write a synopsis for this book with the cover and title as your only guide. Then, you compare it to the real synopsis and laugh at how off you were or congratulate yourself on your amazing deduction skills!
You are free to post any day of the week, but the weekly WIFSY post will be up every Thursday with a link up so you can share your take on the week's cover.

Hi guys! Sorry about the lateness of this post, I lost track of time this week and when I woke up this morning, I realized I hadn't written my WIFSY post yet! So I'll cut this short and jump right into this week's WIFSY!

ISCLAIMER: I did not write this book, I'm only stating my first impression of it in the form of a made-up synopsis.
Title: Invisible fault lines
Publisher: Simon and Shuster
Release date: May 3rd 2016
add it go Goodreads!

My made-up synopsis
I made a big mistake. One of those really big ones that lend you in in prison because you broke into a building in construction and burned it to the ground type of mistake. But it was all an accident! I swear!

Corry Lowman is the good kid. He comes from a good family, he gets good grades and he's even in the Church Club at school! That's what everyone thinks about when Corry's name is mentioned, but Corry himself? He's tired of being good. He dreams of living his life on the edge, like every hero in every action movie that ever existed. 

Too eager for change, Corry gets in with th wrong crowd  and soon, his grip is slipping and his life in spiralling out of control.

Be careful what you wish for... there's always a catch!

The real-deal
"My father disappeared on a Tuesday that should’ve been like any Tuesday, but eventually became the Tuesday my father disappeared.”

Tired of living in limbo, Callie finally decides to investigate her father’s disappearance for herself. Maybe there was an accident at the construction site that he oversaw? Maybe he doesn’t remember who he is and is lost wandering somewhere? But after seeing a familiar face in a photo from the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, she wonders if the answer is something else entirely.

The construction site  was a given, with the orange cone and yellow flyers... But the rest of the story? Not so much!

The real synopsis actually reminds me of another book called She is not invisible, which is the story of a girl searching for her father who suddenly disappeared.  

Invisible fault line d0es sound interesting; I feel like it would be one of those stories that really make you think and reflect on life or something... You feel me?
