The Year They Fell

The Year They Fell

by David Kreizman

The worst moment of your life can help determine who you really are. Josie, Jack, Archie, Harrison, and Dayana were inseparable as preschoolers. But that was before high school, before parties and football and getting into the right college. Now, as senior year approaches, they're basically strangers to each other. When their parents die in the same plane crash, most of them are suddenly on their own. And they’re the only people who can really understand what that feels like. They have to face the issues that drove them apart—and the secrets their parents left behind. How can you keep up appearances when you're falling apart inside? How can you forgive parents who betrayed you? How do you tell someone you’ve been in love with them since preschool? The answers will help forge a new family in this heartbreaking, funny, and surprising young adult novel from award-winning storyteller David Kriezman. It's a deeply felt, complex journey into adulthood, exploring issues of grief, sexual assault, racism, and trauma. An Imprint Book
