There are imperfect moments in every life—but sometimes, there are perfect accidents . . . What's the point of pretending nothing has changed when everything has? It's the last summer before college, and Jonas Avery knows he should be excited. Instead, he hides out at home, avoiding his friends, his family, and everything that resembles his old life. Because nothing will be normal again—because of The Accident, when everything started falling apart. BrennanDavis knows she needs to stand up and face her anxiety—the deep, dark, debilitating dread that rules her everyday life. Because what stops her from going out into the world and just living is going to get a whole lot worse. She’s leaving for college in the fall, where she’ll be confronted with even more to worry about. To get back up sometimes you have to fall down, hard . . . When Jonas crashes into Brennan—in a harmless, albeit embarrassing fender bender—thetwo teens connect in ways they never expected. As friends, they help each other overcome their biggest falls and faults, and soon discover that while love can't fix everything, it's sometimes a place to start. Sensitive, wry, and unabashedly authentic, The Opposite of Falling Apart isn't about finding perfection in another person or fixing the things we think are broken. Instead, Micah Good has penned an enchantingly honest novel about accepting the very pieces of ourselves that make us unique, whole, and undeniably human.

Micah Good has been writing stories on Wattpad since she was a freshman in college. She currently lives in the Midwestern United States, where she’s pursuing a career in nursing. When she's not writing, she loves dogs, naps, and getting lost in a book, in any order.

The Opposite of Falling Apart will keep its readers up late at night . . . At turns anxiety producing, humorous, frustrating, and lovely, the relationship that develops between these strong but vulnerable characters is inspirational and unforgettable. --Susan Mullen, co-author of We Are Still Tornadoes
