When the World Tips Over: eBook (Reflowable ePub)

By Jandy Nelson

An explosive new novel brimming with love, secrets, and enchantment by Jandy Nelson, the New York Times bestselling author of I’ll Give You the Sun.

Welcome to Paradise Springs, Northern California – a hot, dusty, half-magical, wine-country town where there are so many grapes fermenting at one time, you get drunk from breathing the air; where devil winds blow so hard they whip your sense away. A town where every fairy tale you've ever read could be set ... and "home" to the family Falls. When a strange, enigmatic, rainbow-haired girl shows up in their fantastical hometown, it sends the lives of Fall brothers Wynton and Miles and their sister Dizzy into tumult. With road trips, rivalries, family curses, love stories within love stories within love stories, and sorrows and joys passed from generation to generation, this is the intricate, luminous tale of a family’s complicated past and present. And only in telling their stories can they hope to rewrite their futures.

'A family's past collides with its present in this joyful saga about Dizzy and her brothers, Wynton and Miles, which tells the love stories, joys, and sorrows of multiple generations.' The Bookseller

'I laughed, I cried, I was engrossed in the plot. It was a beautiful soap opera of a family drama...It just feels like so much love has gone into this book.' Netgalley Reviewer

'When I saw Jandy Nelson was gracing us with another book after so damn long, you best believe I was first in line. And boy was it worth the wait! Jandy just perfectly knows who to breathe life into character and weave together seamless prose with distinct voices for each character that you can’t help but love them all! (Jandy) just perfectly encompasses what I think YA books are all about— comfort and heartbreak, identity and discovery, human connection and love… I can’t do this book justice. Jandy is BACK!!' Netgalley Reviewer
