As Easy As Falling Off the Face of the Earth by Lynne Rae Perkins

Find in catalogI don’t usually re-read books. I also don’t usually re-read bits and pieces of books because I love them so much I want to study their craft. You can probably guess what I’m about to tell you: This book is the exception. As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth is the kind of journey that starts out like many great experiences in life–entirely by accident. Perhaps that’s what makes this work so beautiful. The story follows the very human main character as he meets mentors and friends along the way to a new destination–one that may or may not involve a black eye, a thousand-mile road trip, a tiny plane, a sailboat, and a large windmill. It’s the story of how sometimes we set out looking for one thing, yet find something else entirely–the thing we didn’t realize we needed all along. That last sentence is trying way too hard to try and say something meaningful. Just go read the book. I dare you. 5/5 stars.
