While I'm Falling

by Laura Moriarty

While I'm Falling Synopsis

What makes a family? That's what nineteen year old Veronica is wondering. Her family have always made her feel safe and protected but that's all been snatched away from her and she's beginning to wonder if she really knows her family at all . . . With a homeless mother and a missing father Veronica has to grow up fast. Real life is a frightening wake-up call and as truths and tensions percolate and bubble to the surface there are devastating consequences. Can Veronica save those she thought she loved? Will her best intentions lead to her worst transgressions? And who will be left to catch Veronica when she falls?
