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.
"The three teenagers' stories intersect neatly, just in time for a well-considered ending. Ages 12up." - Publishers Weekly
"In the iconic words of R.E.M., 'It's the end of the world as we know it,' and this smart, surprisingly feel-good, end-of-days novel is indeed fine. Ages 14 & up." - Kirkus
"Coutts has written a memorable novel filled with hope, love, absolution, and courage in the face of almost certain death...It will have particular appeal to fans of Susan Beth Pfeffer's Life As We Knew It series (Houghton)." - School Library Journal
