about

Lucy is under pressure to succeed and needs to focus on her end-of-year exams—the last thing she needs now is an intense boyfriend.
 
Even though Carl loves Lucy, breaking up with him feels like the only way to keep her dreams on track. But sometimes even right decisions can have awful consequences. Carl crashes his car, breaking his best friend’s neck and leaving himself in a coma. Meanwhile, Lucy discovers that she’s pregnant. What unfolds is a complex drama, full of unexpected twists and turns that will keep teen readers hooked until the very end.
Kate McCaffrey is the author of three award-winning novels for young adults: Beautiful Monster, Destroying Avalon, and In Ecstasy.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Crashing Down by Kate McCaffrey This book started off really well, but kind of lost me halfway through. Lucy was likeable as a protagonist, but I didn't really connect much with, and I think there was just way too much information thrown at readers. The ending also dragged on a bit. The discussions regarding abortions and legal rights etc were interesting, but I just think there was too much in such a short book. super quick read for me as McCaffrey's books always are, so I did enjoy it, but it's not my fave of hers.

Editorial Reviews

“An engaging, insightful, and realistic read for teenagers and adults alike. This story is fast paced and fun and McCaffrey uses common turns of phrase that are engaging and accessible to today’s teenagers. Her writing voice and narrative is strong and genuine and written in an Australian cultural context that we would all understand.”  —Neridah McMullin, author, Ponkidoodle
