A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm probably giving this more than it deserves because Belinda's voice is one that I wanted to hear more of: the way in which she describes her world and her feelings was refreshing in the same way that Christopher's was in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Don't feel sorry for her, feel hopeful. As interesting and also contributing to the rating were the people in the Life Center classes. Kudos to the author for making them all different and not making all of them ultimately lovable. But Lucas and Emily? They were predictable.
