Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings.
The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world—the question is, what to do with the time that’s left? Against this stark backdrop, three island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.
Alexandra Coutts’s TUMBLE & FALL is a powerful story of courage, love, and hope at the end of the world.
Why I Can’t Wait: This has page-turner written all over it! What would it be like to know the end of the world was coming? I think it would cause people to be more bold and courageous, to take risks they might not have before. I can’t wait to see how this will affect the teens in this story. A definite must-read for me! Oh, and once again, a book set to release on my birthday! September is going to be an awesome reading month. 🙂
