Do you ever look at the sky and think that’s where we belong? Like maybe the world is the wrong way around and we’re meant to be up there, floating?
Sixteen-year-old Therese lives in a small town on a small island. Her Aunt Kath calls her Tiger. Her friends call her Resey. The boy she loves calls her Champ. She’s a lot of different things for a lot of different people.
Therese has always had her feet on the ground. She’s running through high school, but someone in her life is about to fall …
And when he does, her perfect world falls with him. For the first time in her life, Therese can’t stand being on the ground.
Girl Running, Boy Falling is a raw read about a girl and boy—who are beautifully flawed.
‘Girl Running, Boy Falling is everything you could hope for in a novel dealing with a difficult topic – it’s thoughtful, artful, deftly crafted, raw, real and deeply affecting.’ – Nick Earls
