The Upside of Falling Down
The Upside of Falling Down | Rebekah Crane
15 posts | 23 read | 13 to read
For Clementine Haas, finding herself is more than a nice idea. Ever since she woke up in an Irish hospital with complete amnesia, self-discovery has become her mission. They tell her she's the lone survivor of a plane crash. They tell her she's lucky to be alive. But she doesn't feel lucky. She feels...lost. With the relentless Irish press bearing down on her, and a father she may not even recognize on his way from America to take her home, Clementine assumes a new identity and enlists a blue-eyed Irish stranger, Kieran O'Connell, to help her escape her forgotten life...and start a new one. Hiding out in the sleepy town of Waterville, Ireland, Clementine discovers there's an upside to a life that's fallen apart. But as her lies grow, so does her affection for Kieran, and the truth about her identity becomes harder and harder to reveal, forcing Clementine to decide: Can she leave her past behind for a new love she'll never forget?

Bailing at 56%. It's immature, repetitive, and boring. If I had been close to the end of the story when I got to 54% (as I thought I must be), I would have finished. I just can't be bothered with this much more.

I have been struggling to find a book that I like lately.. Then this one falls in my lap! AMAZING! I absolutely LOVED this book! I was not expecting the twist at the end at all, and the ending was lovely (; put this in your TBR list! It's a good one

This would have been a 4 star rating if the story/author didn't hate on the Steelers, just sayin! Besides that it was a great love story. The premise that an 18 year old girl is the only survivor in a plane crash in Ireland. She runs away to find herself and makes up a new persona. I figured out the ending in the book with the little hints thrown here and there. Sweet ending that was tied up with a bow.
3 stars

I've been in a reading slump lately but this got me out of it. It was a light, easy, fun read. Cute and typical love story.

This book was entertaining. I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next and how the story would wrap up. I was satisfied with the story, it it just wasn‘t amazing.

I really liked this sweet simple easy story of Clementine Haas, a girl who gets in a plane crash and has retrograde amnesia.there is a love story, but nothing is as it appears. Really this story is about identity and who makes you You, are you defined by family, your friends, your internal self, your actions or is it really a combination of everything.the twist at the end felt contrived.one of those that you really like or just go “ehhh”. 4 stars!

This was one of my kindle first selections and after a rough couple weeks at work, it was a nice lighthearted read. A sole survivor of a plane crash suffers amnesia and finds herself, literally and figuratively, in Ireland.

I'm liking this so far. I needed something different and fun as I'm slogging through The Immortalists... Nothing more relaxing than an audiobook in the car, while doing dishes, at work, etc. 🎧❤

After losing her memory from a plane crash, Clementine runs away from the hospital and her former life to find herself. This book was very well written for the bit of brain candy that it was.

I'm always up for a good amnesia story. This YA novel tells the story of Clementine - the sole American survivor of a plane crash. When she wakes up in Ireland and doesn't remember anything, she flees the hospital and takes solace in the comfort of a cute boy (naturally!). Although the story is a little predictable, Clementine is a strong character. The resolution was a bit too quick for me, but I was satisfied by this charming story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

With several nods to Jane Austen, plenty of humor, endearing characters, unbelievably raw moments and all these set in the beautiful cities of Ireland – I definitely recommend The Upside of Falling Down for everyone who‘s looking for a great read.
