Review

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE FALL OF LISA BELLOW 

“A daring narrative strategy...You will hate to leave the inside of this woman's head when you finish the book. The texture of family life as it unravels, then begins to regenerate, is conveyed with unflinching clarity and redemptive good humor.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[A] sharp and suspenseful novel...The novel’s tension arises as much from Perabo’s insight into a complex and changing family dynamic as from the horror of an unusual but believable situation. Perabo’s female characters are particularly strong....Survivor’s guilt takes on a unique form here, as the novel plays with the reader’s understanding of what is actually going on in Meredith’s world."
—Publishers Weekly

"Utterly captivating and achingly beautiful, The Fall of Lisa Bellow brilliantly explores the aftermath of a shocking abduction in an idyllic town, moving seamlessly between the rocky terrain of teenage grief and maternal guilt to show the ultimate redemptive power of love. It's a fantastic, thought provoking novel."
—Kimberly McCreight, New York Times Bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia and The Outliers

“A searingly smart and painful exploration of aftermath—the voids left in tragedy's wake, the truths that can never be spoken. To be the one left behind: Perabo never shies away from how much this can hurt. But in her hands, what seems at first like a story of loss ultimately becomes a narrative of renewal and an unforgettable portrait of mothers, daughters, and the tangle of desperation, fear, history, confusion, and love that binds them together.” 
—Robin Wasserman, author of Girls on Fire

“Were you ever an adolescent girl? I was. And I wouldn’t go back there for a million dollars. Except I just did, with Susan Perabo as my tour guide. In The Fall of Lisa Bellow, she earns her place as a bridge builder between generations, equally believable and relatable from the perspectives of a struggling teenager and her well intentioned but flummoxed mom. I can’t wait to share this beautiful, funny and tragic page turner with my fifteen year old. I just know it will spark the scintillating, honest conversation I’ve been waiting for!”
—Elisabeth Egan, author of A Window Opens

“Breathless...this exhilarating novel shatters your heart then pieces it back together chapter by chapter until the last devastating sentence. In masterful and hypnotic prose, Perabo tells an unforgettable story of resilience as a family struggles to reconnect after their perfect world is torn apart by violence and loss. Psychologically insightful and emotionally engrossing, this is a story that will transform you from the inside out.”
—Kim van Alkemade, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan #8
