Falling by Doug Wilhelm
Matt used to be a basketball superstar, but now he won't play anymore and no one knows why. Katie is inquisitive and growing ill-at-ease with her formerly tight circle of friends. Despite being from the same town, they fatefully meet in a chat room and the rest... well, the rest is a poorly written mishmosh with no sense of a realistic voice for a teen. Once the author jumped completely out the alternating narrative into a present tense history of their town that sounded like a high school report and started waxing all After School Special about the drug trade going through this small Vermont town, I was done. A big NAY.
