Book Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall

From Barnes and Noble

After a cyber bullying incident turns her life upside down, a handsome wheelchair rugby player shows a former mean girl that everyone deserves a second chance in this swoonworthy new novel from the author of How to Say I Love You Out Loud.

The party was at her house. The photos were posted to her Facebook account. That's all the evidence anyone needed to condemn Nikki Baylor for a cyberbullying incident that humiliated a classmate and nearly resulted in the girl's suicide. Now Nikki's been expelled from her old school, her friends have abandoned her, and even her own parents can't look her in the eye. With her plans for the future all but destroyed, Nikki resigns herself to being the girl everyone hates - almost as much as she hates herself. But then Nikki meets Pax, a spirited wheelchair rugby player who knows what it's like when one mistake completely shatters your life. Refusing to judge her because of her past, he shows her that everyone deserves a second chance... and everyone deserves to be loved.

Stars: 4.75/5


What’s it like: Me Before You but happier overall


What I thought: WOW! It was perfect, actually. There was a small plot hole or two, which is the only reason it wasn’t a 5/5. I cried at the end and I usually don’t cry at books. I just got really attached to the characters. Anyways, the MC (Nikki) is forced to switch schools and doesn’t know anyone. Everyone that knew her (including her parents) won’t look at her. She is starting from scratch and also feels like scum after what happened. Nikki works at a clinic where she meets Pax. They are awesome together! They start hanging out and he really manages to heal her by just being a constant in her life. I wish I wasn’t done with it.
