Disclosure:  I received an ARC book to facilitate my review.  This is my honest opinion only.  You may have a different outcome.

Walking On Trampolines
  Written by Frances Whiting
  Paperback, 368 Pages
  Fiction, February 2015

From the day Annabelle Andrews sashays into her classroom, Tallulah ‘Lulu’ de Longland is bewitched: by Annabelle, by her family, and by their sprawling, crumbling house tumbling down to the river.

Their unlikely friendship intensifies through a secret language where they share confidences about their unusual mothers, first loves, and growing up in the small coastal town of Juniper Bay. But the euphoria of youth rarely lasts, and the implosion that destroys their friendship leaves lasting scars and a legacy of self-doubt that haunts Lulu into adulthood.

Years later, Lulu is presented with a choice: remain the perpetual good girl who misses out, or finally step out from the shadows and do something extraordinary. And possibly unforgivable… It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce.

Frances Whiting is one of Australia’s best known and most popular writers. A senior feature writer for Queensland’s premier weekend magazine, Q Weekend in the Courier Mail, Frances is also a much loved columnist for the Sunday Mail, and other Sunday newspapers around Australia, with her weekly column now in its nineteenth year. She lives in Brisbane, Queensland with her husband and two children.

My Thoughts
I liked Lulu but thought she was very naive.  What girl hangs out with her boy friend and best friend all the time and doesn't expect something to happen?  She does pretty good in her life, even though it wasn't what she expected.  That is the way life generally goes.  She is always drawn to the past though, which hurts not only her, but many others.  The past is the past for a reason.  I Rated This Book:  3/5 Stars ***
