Characters It doesn t get much better When Wendell Newman is asked to take care of his seven year old nephew, he feels that he has no choice but to say yes Rowdy, is mute and shows signs of aggression and abuse Wendell is almost a kid himself and hardly has two pennies to rub together, yet Rowdy needs him There are certain things, that have been out of Wendell s control all of his life, his family, his past and most of his own life choices With Rowdy however, Wendell sees him, as a chance to do something good and right some wrongs The bond that grows between these two is immediate and fierce If only everything in life was that easy.Wendell is a man who is all heart He gave it to Rowdy the second he met him and even though Rowdy doesn t speak a word, his affection is clear Both of these young men grabbed my heart from the start Though this book starts a little slow, and left me with many a question throughout, the payoff is worth it Fall Back Down When I Die is a novel that evokes emotion, plain and simple Emotion for Wendell and Rowdy, emotion for Gillian, the High School Principal Special Ed Teacher, who wants to help others but whose past won t always let her These characters ate at me Made me wonder what hard living and pasts that just don t quit must be like Admittedly, there was a moment or two when my eyes filled with tears and when a couple of drops fell When my heart caught in my throat, tight tight tight Oh yeah This one gets to you my friends My suggestion of course, is to find out for yourselves When I close my eyes, I m right back there Wendell and Rowdy and my heart is full A huge thank you to NetGalley, Little Brown and Company and to Joe Wilkins for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review Published on and NetGalley on 1.13.19.Will be published on

beautiful, each brimming with verve, loss, and longing fall back down when i die is a moving, naturalistic, and ultimately rewarding work, one which amply displays wilkins s talents for describing the majestic and the complicated, be it the rugged contours of the bull mountains or the softer, less discernible topographies of the human heart the land where the failures of the nation, the failures of myth, met the failures of men where history went to die where rivers brimful in april slicked to gravel by august where the grass was tough and thick before the plow and ever after the dust lifted from the sour, alkali hardpan left in the wake of the plow a land of ravaging pine beetles, of ever longer summers and shorter, dryer winters the land itself animated sorrow and anger, birthed and cradled and raised up failure and fear, a raw and righteous violence. flag Like see review Dec 05, 2018 Andrew Unger rated it it was amazing For all the think pieces written on Trump s America,
