Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 19 August 2009
Asian Neesh and white Sammy are a modern day Romeo and Juliet, star-crossed in a racist hate-flled playground in modern Britain. 'Falling' is a multilayered story that interweaves Neesh and Sammy's lives with the strikingly similar story of their forebears, dream-like images of which haunt the supernaturally-sensitive Neesh. The story is told in three teenage voices (mainly) and Dogar doesn't shy away from doesn't shy away from bad language, violence and raw issues such as self-harm. This book is rich with colour and emotions from the dark hatred of racism to true compassion and love, a striking blend of moving romance and a vivid tense plot with gut-wrenching moments of terror.
This is a great read and a striking novel, both stark and thought-provoking, which will encourage compassion and understanding as teens mature into adults. I won't forget it for a long time.
