Book Review-The Upside of Falling Down-Rebekah Crane

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Try and imagine that you were the sole survivor in an airplane crash. You wake up in a hospital have have no idea what happened, what your name is or anything else for that matter. Pretty darned scary! A male nurse takes Clementine under his wing and tries to help her regain her memory. It isn't working and she is tired of being stuck in the hospital. She meets a guy out on the grounds of the hospital and convinces him to take her with him for only a little while. He ultimately agrees and takes her to a little town in Ireland where he lives. Clementine makes up an identity for herself and tells him her name is Sarah.

Of course she starts to fall for him--but he holds back. His pregnant sister really is mean to Sarah-but her boss befriends her.

There is a very happy ending to all this and Clementine finally meets up with her Dad who has been trying to find her--or has he?

This is a clean, heart warming book which could be read by teens and maybe even tweens. As an adult I am very glad I read it!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

For Clementine Haas, finding herself is more than a nice idea. Ever since she woke up in an Irish hospital with complete amnesia, self-discovery has become her mission.

They tell her she’s the lone survivor of a plane crash. They tell her she’s lucky to be alive. But she doesn’t feel lucky. She feels…lost.

With the relentless Irish press bearing down on her, and a father she may not even recognize on his way from America to take her home, Clementine assumes a new identity and enlists a blue-eyed Irish stranger, Kieran O’Connell, to help her escape her forgotten life…and start a new one.

Hiding out in the sleepy town of Waterville, Ireland, Clementine discovers there’s an upside to a life that’s fallen apart. But as her lies grow, so does her affection for Kieran, and the truth about her identity becomes harder and harder to reveal, forcing Clementine to decide: Can she leave her past behind for a new love she’ll never forget?
