Publisher's Summary

A new hilarious, honest, and hopeful novel from the author of Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie.
It's not easy being Claire. (Really.) Claire's life is a joke...but she's not laughing. While her friends seem to be leaping forward, she's dancing in the same place. The mean girls at school are living up to their mean name, and there's a boy, Ryder, who's just as bad, if not worse. And at home nobody's really listening to her - if anything they seem to be more in on the joke than she is.
Then into all of this (not-very-funny-to-Claire) comedy comes something intense and tragic - while her dad is talking to her at the kitchen table, he falls over with a medical emergency. Suddenly the joke has become very serious, and the only way Claire, her family, and her friends are going to get through it is if they can find a way to make it funny again.

If You Love Out of My Mind, You'll Love Falling Over Sideways

This book is such a sweet and touching look at Claire who is transforming right before our eyes. Nothing is going right, in fact everything is going wrong, but she is slowly growing up. If you loved Out of My Mind, and Counting by 7s, you will appreciate this book as well.
