After a cyber bullying incident turns her life upside down, a handsome wheelchair rugby player shows a former mean girl that everyone deserves a second chance in this swoon-worthy new novel from the author of How to Say I Love You Out Loud.

The party was at her house. The photos were posted to her Facebook account. That’s all the evidence anyone needed to condemn Nikki Baylor for a cyberbullying incident that humiliated a classmate and nearly resulted in the girl’s suicide. Now Nikki’s been expelled from her old school, her friends have abandoned her, and even her own parents can’t look her in the eye. With her plans for the future all but destroyed, Nikki resigns herself to being the girl everyone hates – almost as much as she hates herself. But then Nikki meets Pax, a spirited wheelchair rugby player who knows what it’s like when one mistake completely shatters your life. Refusing to judge her because of her past, he shows her that everyone deserves a second chance… and everyone deserves to be loved.


Since some time I've been reading more YA from what I intended, that's not bad at all, but sometimes YA can be a little repetitive if you really think about, so when I find a book where the plot is not completely new BUT the whole story hits me as nothing I've read before... the feeling is so indescribable that I completely fall in love with the book itself.

How To Keep Rolling After A Fall is a book not just with a beautiful cover but a fantastic story between pages, a story that comes with a very-realistic problem existing in our world—cyberbullying, but this time from a different perspective. Karole wrote a cute, light, quick romance, with many parts that join together to form a whole.

Nikki met Pax in a moment in her life where due to other people's bad choices and hers let her with no friends, and going through a new school where they all seemed to know what she did —or rather what she didn't. Not everything is what it seems, but it seems that when it's your house and social medium, you couldn't truly blame others for don not believe in you... until, there is. Pax is a spirited wheelchair rugby player and someone in which Nikki can trust.

She gets blamed for everything and everyone —even her family; and because of that, she blames herself but for a different reason... for not telling the true true or at least for being kind-of-good and doesn't tell who really was or were. The other girl went through such horrible things that almost got herself killed, and... well, I don't know what I'd do in her place, so I can't really say a lot from that situation. But what I can say is... I felt bad because for other people's errors another is blamed and that's not cool at all.

Anyways, I loved Pax's character, he's that ray of light in the dark, he's the one who brings happiness into her life. But at the same time he didn't wanted to be a lot into her, I totally understood him, however, he didn't disappoint me and he helped her... a lot; also, he saw what other people didn't; and even when he had his own problems to deal with; he was there for her, to support her, to protect her from their demons.

This book is full of deep feelings, emotions —good and bad ones, sadness, guilty, but overall... love. And not just for others but for themselves. There were moments where I didn't really want to finish it, but I knew from the very beginning that it was going to hit me really hard. In general, all was well-described, things were said how they really were, and she did really make a good job with this book so I'll be absolutely reading another in the future. If you happen to like YA romance, you need to read How To Keep Rolling After A Fall. And if you don't... then you need to read it anyways. 

Book: +4.9/5 stars
