Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: September 2013
Duration: 10 hours 25 minutes
The end of everything is filled with beginnings in this surprising work of preapocalyptic fiction.
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 up into intertwining stories of love, friendship, and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.
Irresistible and inspiring, Tumble & Fall is a powerful novel of courage, love, and hope at the end of days.
“This is a well-crafted story with compelling characters that will appeal to a wide variety of readers. But what makes it truly special is that, despite its premise, this book manages to be more about beginnings than the inevitable end. 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
