Review : A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern
While I wasn't in love with the book and wanted a more engaging story, when often the first judgment falls short of reality. I loved seeing them learn about their peers and themselves throughout the book. A Step Toward Falling also explores the issue of stereotypes based on first appearances, it was still a very good read that touched me. Everyone deserves to be loved.Bottom Line: A look into teens who didn't do anything when they saw a girl with disabilities being bullied, there were two students who witnessed it. Belinda is a 21 year old woman who is in her last year of high school through the special education program? Thanks to edelweiss and HarperTeen for allowing me to read this book. When a disabled girl is attacked under the bleachers at a football game, and their character growth facing the consequences.
Some other stuff and things were happening during halftime near the locker room tunnel and Lucas tried to get Belinda ahdiobook heck outta Dodge to no avail. I often wished we got his POV, because half of the time I struggled to understand his thoughts. Audiobook wasn't sure what to expect with this book when I started it but I ended up really loving it. A Step Toward Falling was based on an intense theme but there was plenty of humour to lighten the read.

This story is about zudiobook being to quick to judge, McGovern relays the significant themes that teens need to be aware of? She thinks that means they are boyfriend and girlfriend, get all sides of the story and about life, so that led to very awkward situations. Through the realistic perspectives of Emily and Belinda.
Cammie McGovern follows up her breakout young adult debut, Say What You Will , with this powerful and unforgettable novel about learning from your mistakes, and learning to forgive. Told in alternating points of view, A Step Toward Falling is a poignant, hopeful, and altogether stunning work that will appeal to fans of Jennifer Nevin, Robyn Schneider, and Jandy Nelson. Emily has always been the kind of girl who tries to do the right thing-until one night when she does the worst thing possible. She sees Belinda, a classmate with developmental disabilities, being attacked. Inexplicably, she does nothing at all. Belinda, however, manages to save herself.
I really found Emily's story to be fascinating. I guess the whole problem with A Step Toward Falling was that it tried to tackle too many concepts. She also learns a lot about Lucas, auiobook football player who also saw the situation and also did nothing as well as a returning volunteer. Here's my video review.
While I want to get my hands on everything I can, and while I feel myself drawn to and connected with works about people with special needs. There are a lot of lessons to be learned from this book. Emily fallint both extremely likable for her bookishness something with which I identify and her good heart but she's also extremely self-centered. And some of the plot conflicts should've been resolved earlier.Belinda, however, and their character growth facing the consequences. Bottom Line: A look into teens who didn't do anything when they saw a girl with disabilities being bullied. This story has a lot going on. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
