Does it get better? The New York Times bestselling author of Crank and Tricks explores the highly charged landscapes of bullying and forgiveness with brilliant sensitivity and emotional resonance.

Matthew Turner knows it doesn’t get better.

His younger brother Luke was bullied mercilessly after one of Matt’s friends outed Luke to the whole school, and when Luke called Matt—on the brink of suicide—Matt was too wrapped up in his new girlfriend to answer the phone. Now Luke is gone, and Matt’s family is falling apart.

No matter what his girlfriend Hayden says about forgiveness, there’s no way Matt’s letting those he blames off the hook—including himself. As Matt spirals further into bitterness, he risks losing Hayden, the love of his life. But when her father begins to pressure the school board into banning books because of their homosexual content, he begins to wonder if he and Hayden ever had anything in common.

With brilliant sensitivity and emotional resonance, bestselling author Ellen Hopkins’s Rumble explores bullying and suicide in a story that explores the worth of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Read from the Book

Rumble In the Narrow Pewter Space Between the gray of consciousness and the obsidian where dreams ebb and flow, there is a wishbone window. And trapped in its glass, a single silver shard of enlightenment. It is this mystics search for. The truth of the Holy Grail. It is this believers pray for. The spark, alpha and omega. It is this the gilded claim to hold in the cups of their hands. But what of those who plunge into slumber, who snap from sleep’s embrace? What of those who measure their tomorrows with finite numbers, cross them off their calendars one by one? Some say death is a doorway, belief the key. Others claim you only have to stumble across the threshold to glimpse a hundred billion universes in the blink of single silver shard.
