As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth

As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the EarthI will write more about this book later — just want to mark the space for it here. It’s a REALLY unusual book. I kept wavering between LOVING it and WONDERING if it is actually a children’s book. Also wavering between WANTING more (because of the incredibly cool ways Perkins writes and tells the story) and DREADING more (because there are simply TOO many things that go wrong… too many Uh-Oh moments that it sometimes grated on me…)

Must think MORE about this one. But, finally finishing it, I found the ending satisfying and the book so so wise! My current thought is that this book deserves to be shared and many young readers deserve to be aware of this book!
