‘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

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 a boy—who are beautifully flawed.
