Tumble & Fall
by Alexandra Coutts
Publication Date: September 17, 2013
A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings
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 concept behind this book intrigues me. I feel like we’re always being threatened by an “apocalypse”. People talk about what they will do or are going to do before everything ends etc etc. In this story, though, there is no “if”, only a “when”. What do you do when the world is DEFINITELY going to end? I have no idea, honestly. I’m so excited to read about it, though.
