    What is the point of cheating death if a life doesn t exist when you wake up I loved Rebekah Crane s The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland, so it s no surprise that I enjoyed this one just as much Rebekah has such a knack for making you fall in love with even the most unconventional of characters Her ability to mix witty banter with sensitive topics gives you that heartwarming feeling in the end In the Upside of Falling Down we are introduced to Clementine Haas, an 18 year old from Cleveland, Ohio [...]

    Aimee Ferguson

    Digital ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book got me in with the promise of Ireland and an amnesic plane crash survivor The fact that this amnesic then hightails it out of the hospital instead of facing her forgotten life and the media flurry surrounding a lone plane crash survivor only makes it even appealing It s a pretty solid premise I think that premise remained strong throughout the book I mean that it was a solid plot driver, and though I didn t understand a [...]
