Reviews

ο»Ώο»Ώο»Ώ"Everyone Was Falling takes a gripping look at racism, homophobia, adoption, and trauma ... Various intersections of identity and oppression come crashing in on one another as Lee tries to make sense of the carnage that surrounds her characters. The tragedy highlighted in Everyone Was Falling is the mechanism by which Lee's characters are able to learn about the grave injustices that are present in the world ... Everyone Was Falling is as much of a social justice primer as it is a novel; it challenges readers to see the world from a different perspective."
