Table of Contents: While I'm Falling

While I'm FallingAuthor: Laura Moriarty
Publisher/Year: Hyperion, 2009
Synopsis: Ever since her parents announced that they're getting divorced, Veronica has been falling. Hard. A junior in college, she's fallen in love. She's fallen behind in her difficult coursework. She hates her job at the dorm, and she longs for the home that no longer exists. When an attempt to escape the pressure, combined with bad luck, lands her in a terrifying situation, a shaken Veronica calls her mother for help - only to find her former foundation too preoccupied to offer any assistance at all. But Veronica only gets to feel hurt for so long. Her mother shows up at the dorm with a surprising request - and with the elderly family dog in tow. Veronica soon finds herself with a new set of problems, and new questions about love and independence.

What Others Have To Say
Jodi Picoult, Author
"[It] deftly captures the moment a child realizes that growing up means being responsible for your parents' mistakes--and preventing yourself from making the same ones."

Dallas Morning News
"The conflicts, although they have broader social implications, are on a small scale. It’s Moriarty’s eye for detail and smart observations that elevate the novel above the level of mere domestic drama."

Chicklit Reviews
"...despite being slow, with barely any action, the story itself is very well written..."
