Falling Over Sideways


Falling Over Sideways

Claire Goldsmith just wants a break. She has gone through struggle after struggle after struggle. So when her dad "falls over sideways" during a stroke, Claire just about loses it. Out of nowhere she is pushed down a road filled with tears, flying spaghetti and snappy brothers. Not to mention bullies and scary teachers at school. As Claire maneuvers her way down this twisted road she learns more about herself than thought possible.

I absolutely LOVED this book! It was a roller coaster of emotions from start to finish, but in a great way. I found myself relating to Claire more than I thought I would. Overall, I think this is a great book that leaves you speechless.

This book is great for grades 7 and up. If you like realistic fiction books that are super relatable, this is a great book for you.
