Teaser Tuesday (48): Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts. I've been dying to read this one since I saw the cover for the first time. Plus that plot? As you can imagine, I had to start reading it immediately. And it's really good, in a quietly dire sort of way. The book's about the lives of a group of kids and how they spend what may be their final days on earth. This is a quote from the president during a speech over the radio. If you ask me, I wouldn't feel too confident after hearing this speech.

We can't guarantee that even the most successful impact will destroy the asteroid completely. And there are, of course, risks involved. But we are... very... hopeful that this course of action is the single best chance we've been given to steer Persephone in a different direction.

Synopsis of Tumble & Fall:

A novel about the end of days full of surprising beginnings.

The world is living 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 island teens wrestle with intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.

Alexandra Coutts's TUMBLE & FALL is a powerful story of courage, love, and hope at the end of the world.

  1. I seriously thought this was a contemporary novel, but wow... this sounds suspenseful. If I heard the president say this during his speech... yeah, I'd go out and eat just about everything I've been dying to eat. Bring in the lobster!
