To get back up, first you have to fall.

It’s the last summer before college, and Jonas Avery knows he should be excited. Instead, he hides out at home avoiding his friends, his family, and everything that resembles his old life. Because for him nothing is normal—not since The Accident.

Brennan Davis’s anxiety rules her everyday life. She knows she has to get a handle on the debilitating dread that stops her from being fully in the world. College is just around the corner—where the pressures are only going to grow worse.

When Jonas crashes into Brennan—in a harmless, yet embarrassing fender bender—the two teens forge an unexpected friendship that evolves into more. And they soon discover that while love can’t fix everything, it’s sometimes a place to start.

Debut author Micah Good has penned a sensitive, wry, and enchantingly honest novel about accepting the very pieces of ourselves that make us unique, whole, and undeniably human.
