Up We Go by Steve Sibra
Kennedy was a clumsy child, prone to falls. By junior high she was bored with falling down things, falling over, falling into. One morning on a whim Kennedy decided, “Gravity sucks it. From now on I am only going to fall up.”
Kennedy fell up stairs first, just to warm up. Amused, she tripped and fell up a tree. No one else could do it; they tried and hurt their necks. Angrily they ridiculed Kennedy. She laughed in their faces. “Up yours,” they said, so she did. “Piss up a rope,” one mean girl said. So Kennedy did that too.
