In They All Fall Down by J.A. Blake and Nick Moccia, the reader follows the life of London Drake, a boy who suffers at the early age of eleven when his family becomes associated with murder and suicide. The reader learns about his dream of becoming a musician and creating a more positive legacy. After getting a successful record deal and undergoing many therapies, can he put his past behind and embrace life with openness?

This is a heartwarming story and many readers will relate to the protagonist. We are introduced to a character with many inner wounds, someone who has learned not to trust anyone because of the tragedy that hit his family. It is interesting to watch him suffer psychologically before the courageous and encouraging Katorah, unable to accept the love he is given. There is a powerful lesson in this psychologically charged story, a lesson that many readers will need to learn — we can’t succeed in life unless we learn to forgive our past, and to embrace who we are. This is a lesson that London Drake learns at great cost and one that ultimately gives him the inner freedom he badly needed to succeed in his life and career.

They All Fall Down explores powerful themes, including love and family, music, personal growth, and what it really takes to succeed. It is a heartwarming story, highly motivational, and loaded with emotional and psychological insights that readers will find edifying. The writing is excellent and it flows with great fluidity. J.A. Blake and Nick Moccia have written a story that will capture the hearts of readers and prepare them to face the part of them they long to bury forever, the part that actually sets them free.
