While I'm Falling by Laura Moriarty

While I'm Falling One day, Veronica Von Holten is happy, med-school bound, in love with her boyfriend and not far from her supportive family. Then her father finds another man in the bed he shares with his wife of 26 years. As a messy divorce ensues, Veronica struggles to keep her own life in check while her mother's unravels, and a car accident, a house-sitting gig gone bad and an illicit kiss turn Veronica's personal life upside down.

I like the "falling" analogy of Veronica falling love, falling behind in her college courses and so many people's lives falling falling.

This is a light and enjoyable read that truly captures the emotional trauma of instances/choices in your life and how it forces you to grow up.

Rating: 3.9 Good
