Read Freefall Online Free - In the Upperworld, the privileged 1% are getting ready to abandon a devastated planet Earth. And Cam can’t wait to leave. After sleeping through a 1,000-year journey, he and his friends will have a pristine new planet to colonize. And no more worries about the Lowerworld and its 99% of rejects.
Then Cam sees a banned video feed of protesters in the Lowerworld who also want a chance at a new life. And he sees a girl with golden eyes who seems to be gazing straight though the feed directly at him. A girl he has to find. Sofie.
When Cam finds Sofie, she opens his eyes to the unfairness of what’s happening in their world, and Cam joins her cause for Lowerworld rights. He also falls hard for Sofie. But Sofie has her own battles to fight, and when it’s time to board the spaceships, Cam is alone.
Waking up 1,000 years in the future, Cam discovers that he and his shipmates are far off-course, trapped on an unknown and hostile planet. Who has sabotaged their ship? And does it have anything to do with Sofie, and the choices—and the enemies—he made in the past?

This review was featured on my Mini Review Monday segment:

Realy enjoyable, fast-paced story.
Joshua has once again created a world of interest and relatable characters.
I did find the since confusing, but I never was able to grasp the subject at school.
Really SCI-FI with a dash of horror.

Will we be living in some version of Josh Bellin's vividly imagined political satire-slash-sci-fi thriller in the next thirty to forty years? Or, ahem, even the next four? I hope not, but this author (of the wonderful duology SURVIVAL COLONY NINE and SCAVENGER OF SOULS) has all the chops to turn...

It would be easy to dismiss this as yet another dystopian novel in the SciFi genre; another socio-examination of politics, disparate economic issues, and the unfairness that inevitably follows when the minority get to call all the shots for the majority. Somehow the author rose above the stereoty...

Freefall is Joshua David Bellin's third novel published through Simon & Schuster, and this book does not disappoint. Often times, I struggle to follow a non-linear narration, but Bellin handled the narrative skillfully and I actually found myself highly engaged when jumping back and forth in...

This story follows Cam: Upperworld (Earth's white upper-class, the privileged, the 1%ers) boy and Sofie: Lowerworld (Earth's non-white lower-class "terrarists", the 99%, the rejects) girl and prophet of the masses. It is a story of alternating time-periods. 3151 when the ship meant to take the fe...
