Description

From the author of the acclaimed novels Girl in a Bad Place and Bleeding Earth comes a heartstopping work of speculative fiction about what lurks beneath our feet... and beyond.

Watch your step.Eliza knows the legends about the swamp near her house -- that people have fallen into sinkholes, never to be seen again, maybe even falling to the center of the earth. As an aspiring geologist, she knows the last part is impossible. But when her best friends drag her onto the uneven ground anyway, Eliza knows to be worried.And when the earth opens under her feet, there isn't even time to say I told you so.As she scrambles through one cave, which leads to another, and another, Eliza finds herself in an impossible world -- where a small group of people survive underground, running from vicious creatures, eating giant bugs, and creating their own subterranean society. Eliza is grateful to be alive, but this isn't home. Is she willing to risk everything to get back to the surface?

Review quote

Praise for Where She Fell: An enticing little pocket of not-quite-reality that's equal parts wondrous and gruesome-perfect for readers who like their down-the-rabbit-hole stories a little more ... carnivorous. -- Lindsay Ribar, author of Rocks Fall, Everyone DiesA daring exploration of an underground world that would make Jules Verne applaud, and of the depths we must go to find courage and friendship. -- Kevin Emerson, author of Any SecondThrilling and propulsive, Eliza's story is as much a journey inward as it is underground. Survival and self-discovery take many forms in this wild adventure to the center of the earth, and you won't want to put this book down! -- Stephanie Kuehn, William C. Morris-Award Winning Author of Charm & StrangeA fast-paced subterranean thriller with surprises around every dark corner. Heartfelt, terrifying and romantic. I loved every page. -- Kim Liggett, Bram Stoker Award Winner of The Last HarvestThis empowering story of survival boasts a refreshingly realistic teenage voice and a lot of heart. -- BooklistPraise for Girl in a Bad Place: Pulse-pounding. -- Jennifer Mathieu, author of The Truth about AliceEerie and gripping, Girl in a Bad Place will grab you and not let go until the last page. -- Kara Thomas, author of Little Monsters and The Darkest CornersIntense doesn't even begin to describe this propulsive read. -- Kieran Scott, author of What Waits in the WoodsIntense, suspenseful, and highly original examination of female friendship, self-discovery and survival. I was rooting for Mailee and Cara from the first page to the last. Girl in a Bad Place is a book that's impossible to put down and Kaitlin Ward is an author to watch. -- Courtney Summers, author of Sadie and All the RageA good place for young fans of Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike. -- Kirkus ReviewsTackles important issues of manipulation and safety with a fast-paced story that could be ripped from the headlines...Will keep readers turning pages until the end. -- School Library Journal
