Description

Product Description

From debut author Cameron Kelly Rosenblum comes a stunning teen novel that tackles love, grief, and mental health as one girl must process her friend’s death and ultimately learn how to stand in her own light. Perfect for fans of All the Bright Places and We Were Liars.

It’s the summer before senior year. Reid is in the thick of Scofield High’s in-crowd thanks to her best friend, Hattie, who has been her social oxygen since middle school.

But summer is when Hattie goes to her family’s Maine island home. Instead of sitting inside for eight weeks, waiting for her to return, Reid and their friend, Sam, enter into a pact—to live it up, one party at a time.

But days before Hattie is due home, Reid finds out the shocking news that Hattie has died by suicide. Driven by a desperate need to understand what went wrong, Reid searches for answers.

In doing so, she uncovers painful secrets about the person she thought she knew better than herself. And the truth will force Reid to reexamine everything.

Review

“Riveting, aching, and devastating in the best ways, [Cameron] Kelly Rosenblum’s moving debut is my favorite Young Adult novel of 2020.” -- Kim Savage, author of the critically acclaimed After the Woods, Beautiful Broken Girls, and In Her Skin

“A spectacular novel! A page turner that lingers.” -- Lynda Mullaly Hunt, author of New York Times bestseller Fish in a Tree and Bank Street Best Book, One for the Murphys

“This story captures all the passion and insecurity inherent in coming of age friendships. A not-to-be-missed debut that will make you laugh and cry, and ultimately embrace the multi-faceted, complex nature of existence.”  -- Estelle Laure, author of This Raging Light

"Mysterious, playful, tender, and deeply true to its unforgettable heroines, you will fall in love with this story of an iridescent friendship and its unfathomable loss."  -- New York Times bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson  

"The large cast of characters are well and sensitively drawn. The novel doesn’t glorify suicide or dwell on the details of death. Instead it explores loss, futility, honesty, and love, with a richness of prose and excellence of characterization rare in a first-time author. A story to savor." -- Kirkus Reviews  (starred review)

"Rosenblum''s debut novel is a beautifully written examination not only of the sadness of grief, but of the uncertainty it can bestow upon everything. Perfect fans of Jennifer Niven''s All the Bright Places, [this] is a novel that moves beyond a story of loss into one of self-discovery." -- Booklist

The Stepping Off Place is a book about subjects that are often not talked about. Living with mental illness, bipolar disorder, adolescent insecurities, teen sexuality, living with someone with autism, and the complex aftermath of suicide.

Cameron, as a first-time author, has bravely taken on all of the above topics and more and courageously and sensitively brought them into the light of day.

I was a little concerned when Reid was told that Hattie had committed suicide and warned “Don’t tell anyone”! For way too many years, suicide was considered a “selfish act” and was covered up and lied about. Some religions characterized it as a sin and refused to have funerals held in their churches. This type of secret just perpetuates shame surrounding suicide. There really is no room for shame with this horrible loss. Thankfully, Cameron’s characters were not going to be silenced. They went on a heart-wrenching journey to find out exactly what happened to Hattie. Once, they understood the truth, they were able to give her a heartfelt, unique memorial that allowed then to mourn and heal!

The descriptive language she uses enables us to get hooked on the various characters. You know you’re hooked when you are taking a walk and these interesting characters, and storyline, keeps popping into your head!!!
Great read! I could not put it down!

The Stepping Off Place was hands down, my favorite read in a long time. This novel is YA, yet Extremely relatable for any teen and adult.

The story surrounds two best friends who may not actually know everything about each other. One is battling mental health. And the other is battling to find her place in this world, while handling the emotional impact of what it is like to grow up with a severely autistic sibling. Two very real topics. Two very relatable topics. Two very IMPORTANT topics.

Cameron Kelly Rosenblum really out did herself on the whimsically, descriptive narration. The dialogue and banter between characters are what really made the story so alive. In my opinion, the best written novels are the ones where you can envision the character and the plot, right down to the scent of the room. This book did just that. I, too, would really enjoy to see this as a movie.

I had such a hard time putting The Stepping Off Place down, that I also purchased the audio book (amazing!) so I could listen while Gardening and in the car. I’m really Looking forward to future reads from this Author!

I loved this book! It is a beautifully written story about a difficult but important topic. Teen suicide needs to be discussed, especially in these times. This story focuses on Hattie and Reid''s friendship, at times poignant and at times hilarious, and what happens when Reid survives the suicide of larger- than-life, Hattie. This is a survivor''s story as Reid tries to make sense of what happened to her best friend and in so doing, discovers Hattie''s well hidden mental illness. The dialogue rings true as do the relationships between not only Hattie and Reid, but the male friends, as well. This book captured me from the first line to the last. A true page turner.

Wow, and I mean WOW! This was truly an incredible book. The book’s underlying themes revolve around mental health issues that are very prevalent in today’s society, which can be difficult and dry for some authors to explore in-depth - especially while creating the feelings of authenticity. Cameron Kelly Rosenblum does a wonderful job of approaching these issues head on while honing in on strong character arcs and a riveting plot. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Whether it be a young adult who is looking for an exciting and relatable read, or an adult like myself looking for perspective, you can’t go wrong with this one. Looking forward to reading more from this marvelous up and coming author!

I really enjoyed The Stepping Off Place - it is a story that is hard to read slowly, full of both humor and depth. I also found it to be a very moving book, not only because of the tragedy of a young person committing suicide - but by the honest and clear portrayal of the wisdom, maturity and energy of young people on the edge of adulthood. The characters feel real and complex - I wanted to get to know them better as the story progressed. I look forward to more books by Cameron Kelly Rosenblum!

As a mental health therapist, I thought the author did a beautiful job handling heart-wrenching mental health issues that resulted in suicide, followed by deep grief and loss. The characters have depth and will stay with you long after you turn the last page. I read this book in two days because I couldn''t put it down until I finished it. The storyline made me laugh, cry, and contemplate the fragility of life. I highly recommend this book for young adults and adults and anyone grappling with the loss of a loved one by suicide. I look forward to this author''s next book!

Absolutely fabulous! I did not want to put the book down and I did not want it to end. Written to appeal to young adult readers, but as a mother of 5 kids it is compelling to read and help us understand our children’s complicated lives. I will pass it on to my 17 year old and 23 year old daughters and I know they will love reading it as well. Congratulations to Cameron, a first time author. I cannot wait to see what you publish next.
