About The Falling Between Us

All-consuming fame and fortune prove too much for a teen popstar who suddenly goes missing–Eddie and the Cruisers for the Justin Bieber era.

“An uplifting story of love, grief, and forgiveness.”–Kirkus Reviews

A Junior Library Guild Selection!

Just eight months ago, fifteen-year-old Roxanne Stewart was stuck in her tiny, middle-of-nowhere hometown with no prospects of leaving. But after her boyfriend, Joshua Blackbird, posts a performance of an original song on YouTube, he becomes an overnight sensation, catapulting to the dizzying heights of celebrity, and Rox joins him on the whirlwind ride of a massive national tour.

But it’s not long before the never-blinking eye of fame begins weighing them both down–the constant hunger of managers, diehard fans who call themselves “Birdies,” record execs, paparazzi, and even family, all leeching onto Joshua.

Then one day, Joshua Blackbird disappears. Was it a suicide? An accident? Rox will stop at nothing to find out the truth. The Falling Between Us is a haunting love story and a piercing look at the costs of fame.

Praise for The Falling Between Us

“With a shrewd and sympathetic narrator and multiple elements of interest–music, celebrity, grief, mental health–this novel is a recommended first purchase.” –School Library Journal
