The Shock of the Fall PBHarper Collins

Matthew Homes is nineteen, with a chipped front tooth, a tentative diagnosis of schizophrenia, and a dead big brother who refuses to stay dead.

The Shock of the Fall tells the story of Matthew and Simon, two brothers who are separated yet united by a tragic accident. Exploring themes of loss, grief and mental illness, it follows Matthew as he comes to terms with his brother’s death, and his own slow descent into madness.
