Bucking the trend of the many post-apocalyptic series that are all the rage right now, Alexandra Coutts’ new YA novel Tumble & Fall is a standalone novel set in the present day, not the future. So think pre-apocalyptic drama. Here’s the official description: “The world is spinning 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 teens are swept up into intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.”
