Life Sliding - Reviews

"Life Sliding , S.L. Mauldin’s young adult novel is a grand and glorious read about the pressures to conform that shackle children and young adults in school, and one popular kid’s realization that there was much more to life than being the most looked up to.... " Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite 

"High school romances are often flirty and based on who is who and what social class you fall into. While this novel starts out following those trends and is easily relatable to readers, it soon twists and becomes so much more....."  Literary Titan Gold Book Award Winner March 2018
