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.
