Paper Avalanche by Lisa Williamson

‘Bonnie. Never Mum or Mummy or Mother. Just Bonnie.’

When it comes to flying under the radar, Ro Snow is an expert.

No friends.

No boys.

No parties.

And strictly NO VISITORS.

It may be lonely, but at least this way the truth remains where it should – hidden.

Then Tanvi Shah, the girl who almost died, comes tumbling back into her life, and Ro finds herself losing control of her carefully constructed lies.

But if Ro’s walls come crumbling down, who’s going to take care of Bonnie…

Review: Paper Avalanche is a highly engaging YA contemporary read with likable characters. As with Lisa Williamson’s previous title I was halfway through the book before I even realised. It’s always nice to be that lost in a story that you don’t notice the time passing as you read.

Ro is the main character, and her story dominates the book (as it should). Yet for me I loved Tanvi best. While Tanvi’s overzealous optimism seems over the top at times her behaviour makes sense to me. I could relate to Tanvi not wanting to have people feel sorry for her and her using her bubbliness to mask things.

The story of Paper Avalanche is easy to follow. Admittedly it feels a little neat but because both Ro and Tanvi are so lovely you just flow with it.

I certainly recommend it as a captivating YA contemporary read.
