Review - Falling by Cat Clarke

FallingRelease Date: June 15th 2013
Buy it: Amazon
Add it: Goodreads

It's the party of the year and everyone's going to be there - the perfect opportunity for Anna to set up her newly-out best friend Tilly with the only other gay girl in school. 

And it'll help her keep her mind off the fact that she cheated on her perfect boyfriend Cam last night. But this party will change everything.

A powerful novel about sexuality and growing up, realistically and frankly portrayed by acclaimed YA novelist Cat Clarke. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 14+.

This is the first Cat Clarke book that I have read. It wasn't a great book but this could be because the story could have been a lot more in depth, their is so much about the story that could have been explored in much more detail.

The book is only 72 pages long and it is aimed at dyslexic readers, which is why it wasn't as in depth as it could have been. I feel there could have been a lot more to the story if it was longer.

The story between all the characters were handled in a realistic way, although if I was Cam I probably wouldn't have acted so calmly as he did with Anna.

Although Anna ends up being horrible to her best friend Tilly at the party you can't help but feel sorry for her at the end of the book.

There isn't really much more I can say about Falling without giving the whole story away other than the ending is somewhat predictable and is a pretty good book.
