Description and Pre-order links for EVEN IF I FALL!

I can finally share the description of my next Contemporary YA book with you! EVEN IF I FALL is hitting shelves on January 8, 2019, and will be available in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook. It’s now available for pre-order at most retailers including my local indie, Changing Hands Bookstore. Pre-order links to all the retailers are below. The cover reveal will be coming soon, but I’ve seen it and I’m so excited to share it with you! It’s going to look perfect alongside IF I FIX YOU and THE FIRST TO KNOW!

I will tell you that this book is set in a small fictional town in West Texas where my dad’s side of the family is from. My protagonist, Brooke, is a figure skater, and I had a blast revisiting my old ice skating days (I skated when I was much younger). The book is based off a short story that I wrote years ago and always wanted to develop into a full-length novel. I’m so glad Harlequin Teen fell in love with the idea and gave me the chance to share Brooke and Heath’s story with you.



Don’t miss this deeply emotional, romantic and layered novel from Abigail Johnson, whose stories have been described as “smart,” “heartfelt,” “genuine” and “complex.”

A year ago, Brooke Covington lost everything when her beloved older brother, Jason, confessed to the murder of his best friend, Calvin. Brooke and her family became social pariahs, broken and unable to console one another. Brooke’s only solace remains the ice-skating rink, where she works but no longer lets herself dream about a future skating professionally.

When Brooke encounters Calvin’s younger brother, Heath, on the side of the road and offers him a ride, everything changes. She needs someone to talk to…and so does Heath. No one else understands what it’s like. Her brother, alive but gone; his brother, dead but everywhere. Soon, they’re meeting in secret, despite knowing that both families would be horrified if they found out. In the place of his anger and her guilt, something frighteningly tender begins to develop, drawing them ever closer together.

But when a new secret comes out about the murder, Brooke has to choose whose pain she’s willing to live with—her family’s or Heath’s. Because she can’t heal one without hurting the other.

About Abigail

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend. She is represented by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds Literary Agency.
