“In the iconic words of R.E.M., “It’s the end of the world as we know it,” and this smart, surprisingly feel-good, end-of-days novel is indeed…fine.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Coutts’s characters offer a great deal of depth and appeal, and her writing is both purposeful and rich.”—Publishers Weekly
In Alexandra Coutts‘s critically acclaimed novel Tumble & Fall, the world is spinning 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 teens are swept into intertwining stories of love, friendship, and family. And with the ultimate stakes at hand, each has every reason to do extraordinary things.
Irresistible and inspiring, Tumble & Fall is a powerful novel of courage, love, and hope at the end of days.

“Apocalyptic stories are all the rage these days, but this one stands out. . . . Coutts has written a memorable novel filled with hope, love, absolution, and courage in the face of almost certain death. It will inspire readers to consider their own mortality and the profound impact they have on those who love them.” – School Library Journal
“Coutts captures what happens when the worst is inevitable, painting a candid and emotional picture of a pre-apocalyptic America. In the asteroid’s shadow, every day, decision, conversation, and kiss is precious. Richly developed characters and a tight-knit island setting characterize this impressive novel, made more so by a restrained ending that resists sensationalism.” – The Horn Book
