The Lovereading4Kids comment
Falling is a dark and dangerous multi-layered love story between an Asian girl and a white boy, in which the past and present collide. It's the gripping second teenage novel from Sharon Dogar, the critically acclaimed author of Waves. Intensely moving and atmospheric, it's also heart-breaking, thought-provoking, romantic, even violent but finally life-affirming.
Waves was long-listed for the 2009 Carnegie Medal and was short-listed for the 2008 Branford Boase award.
Review by Claudia (aged 16)
This is a really fun book - funny, tense and tragic at times and would recommend it to all teenage girls. The characters are likeable and you felt you could really sympathise when things don’t go well. It was really easy to read and I was glued to it for a couple of days until I finished. Definitely worth a read!

Falling by Sharon Dogar
Neesha is afraid - haunted by the fragments of a nightmare about a girl falling, far away and a long time ago. Just when the echoes in her head threaten to overwhelm her, a boy unexpectedly comes to her rescue. Handsome and talented, Sammy finds himself strangely drawn to Neesha - but it's only when they come together, that they begin to realise why. Are they falling in love or being pulled into the past - fated to replay a love affair that ended in blood?
'Waves is a remarkable novel by a talented story teller, suffused by an atmosphere both sensuous and sinister.' PHILIP PULLMAN
'Sharon Dogar is a writer to watch.' MEG ROSOFF
