It's really great to see someone talking about bipolar disorder in a new way. Anyone with a sibling understands the huge effect they have on your life especially as a child, and the author here really gives you an inside look to a bipolar sibling. She writes honest and raw characters that made for a captivating read, but definitely best for teenagers or anyone who knows someone with bipolar.

Loved this book! I will keep looking for more by her. My 14 year old daughter loves to read and we share a lot of books. Unfortunately, the amount of profanity, partying and such prevents me from letting her read this. The main reason I would love for her to read the book is because I am mildly bipolar and Annabelle and her mother' s relationship mirrors mine and my daughter's in some ways. The author is a good writer and, while her goal may primarily have been to educate readers on the relationships surrounding those with bipolar disorder, she manages to tell an engaging, thoughtful, and funny story as well.

Marybeth Smith is a gnome loving writer from Michigan who is the founder of an amazing website called www.askabipolar.com.

In her self published debut e-book called "Fall Girl", her main character named Annabelle who is 17 to be, has to deal with the many trials and tribulations surrounding her caused by her friends and family. Many of which seem to come from either her bipolar brother Blake or her mean spirited ex boyfriend named Spencer.

I have personally read many books in my life but none of which deals with the subject of the bipolar disorder in a natural, normal like way as Marybeth does in her e-book. Though I know very little about the disorder I have learned a lot from reading her novel not only about the disorder itself but how to be a better person thanks to her well written characters.

In my personal opinion, if you enjoy reading YA high school material then you would definitely enjoy reading this e-book.

From the beginning, you immediately identify with Annabelle, no matter your age. Everyone has been in high school and had problems. But Annabelle's problems are a little bit different to start, which shows the depth of the ride you're in for as a reader. Her brother is bipolar and you sense the problems this has caused and will continue to cause. But aside from that, Annabelle is a normal teen with boyfriend and friend problems, so everyone can relate.
Knowing a lot about bipolar disorder myself, Smith does a great job of portraying what the disease is like and how it affects family members -- the flip side of what most books about bipolar do.
I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone. Not only entertaining and well-written, it's a learning experience.

Brilliant! I couldn't put this book down once I started it. It brought back so many memories of my teen years spent with a bipolar brother and the trouble he got himself into...
The characters are so true to life and Marybeth doesn't hold back...she lets her characters show their real colors without sugarcoating the dialogue! Awesome job!

Absolutely brilliant! If there's one thing I can say of Ms. Smith, it's that she's able to bring characters to life in their true form. It's not easy to convince the reader that characters can be "real", but she's done it with this fabulous novel. It's also amazing that Ms. Smith has been able to create a view point of life with bipolar through the eyes of a teenager so convincingly. I'm eagerly awaiting her next novel...

Review by: Pocket Christi on June 19, 2011 :
Fall Girl is a fantastic fictional piece written for teens that includes an accurate depiction of a high school girl and her teenage angst while her her bipolar brother reeks havoc on her life. Not only was this wonderfully written, but the book was not an account of a bipolar teen and their life, but instead, how siblings of a bipolar teen can be affected. Though fictional, Blake's character holds true to a teen with bipolar. All the characters were developed so well and the scenes so realistic, I felt like I was back in high school all over again and that I was Annabelle. This book was fantastic and I hope there is a sequel coming. I must know what happens next!!!! I give it 5 AMAZEBALLS stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
