Walking on Trampolines by Frances Whiting Review

* I received and ARC of this book for my honest review*

“Tallulah de Longland,” she said slowly, letting all the Ls in my name loll about lazily in her mouth before passing judgment. “That,” she announced, “is a serious glamorgeous name.”

From the day Annabelle Andrews sashays into her classroom, Tallulah ‘Lulu’ de Longland is bewitched: by Annabelle, by her family, and by their sprawling, crumbling house tumbling down to the river.

Their unlikely friendship intensifies through a secret language where they share confidences about their unusual mothers, first loves, and growing up in the small coastal town of Juniper Bay. But the euphoria of youth rarely lasts, and the implosion that destroys their friendship leaves lasting scars and a legacy of self-doubt that haunts Lulu into adulthood.

Years later, Lulu is presented with a choice: remain the perpetual good girl who misses out, or finally step out from the shadows and do something extraordinary. And possibly unforgivable…

It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce.


This was a decent book. It is a quick and easy read but it wasn't one I just couldn't put down.It felt like it was too long and too repetitive  but it would be a decent summer read on the patio.

Is this a book I would read again in the future? Maybe but not anytime soon.

Only reason why I am giving this 3 out of 5 is because it felt too long. 

You can now purchase this in book stores and online
