Slipping Reality by Emily Beaver

Amazon / Goodreads

Slipping Reality by Emily Beaver is a coming of age story about fourteen year old Katelyn, who goes through tremendous heartbreak over her brother's terminal illness.

Slipping Reality is an honest and a hauntingly beautiful look at the lives and mindset of a family going through such a painful hardship. A perfect novel to help anyone going through loss. Having lost my father from complications to Diabetes, I can completely relate to this story. The writing style was a bit difficult for me at times, however this was a debut novel written by Emily Beaver when she was 14 years old.  Emily did experience the loss of her brother. Its unbelievable to think that a 14 year old girl wrote this and she did an amazing job. 

Highly Recommend especially to younger readers.

4 out of 5 stars
