In a time of hardship and heartbreak, sometimes, reality just isn't enough. Slipping Reality is the story of fourteen-year-old Katelyn Emerson, who, when faced with the glaring reality of her brother's illness, rebels against the truth by slipping away into the depths of her own imagination. There, she finds the kind of support and comfort she feels she deserves. There, she does not have to feel so alone. And yet, as Katelyn's grasp on reality begins to unravel, so too does the story of a girl who grew up too fast and fell apart too soon. Emily Beaver's debut novel is a coming of age story that deals with the trials of young grief, insight, and growth where it's least expected.

2 stars - it was OK
This book was first written by the author when she was 14 years old. For the age the book was pretty good. I was over half the book before I actually got into it. It was lacking creativity in the beginning. I would recommend this for pre-teens/early teens. Especially if they are dealing with a similar situation.
