    This is a beautifully written novel about families, mental illness and love in all its manifestations. When I started reading this book I thought it was a story about a young woman finding out a family secret. It is SO much more than that! The story of Laurel and Seph will draw you in, it will make you think and you will not be able to put it down. About half-way through, I started to read more quickly, because I really wanted to know what was going to happen with all the characters.

About half-way through, I started to read more quickly, because I really wanted to know what was going to happen with all the characters. I really enjoyed reading the story from the standpoints of both Laurel and Seph and this was beautifully handled by the author. I can't even tell you how moved I was by this book, so evocative, honest and poignant. Highly recommended read, 5 well-deserved stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. With thanks to THE Book Club.

Sometimes I find it difficult to switch between viewpoints from different people and and it's a skill that Natalie has in bucket loads. I found it added to the emotional investment in the characters and I found myself reading it at every opportunity because I simply had to know what happened to everyone. It wasn't what I expected and I love it for that reason! I will be off now to read Natalie's first two books.

    I loved this book, the characters were so well written and the story really held my attention. The book is set in the present day with mainly Seph and in the eighties with her mum Laurel. It tells the story of Sephs biological dad who emails her out of the blue, she doesn't even know he exists before that time. The chapters switch between Seph in the present and her mum and Dad before she was born and after. The main topic is dealt with in a fantastic way and so we'll written.

    Many thanks to the author, Natalie Martin, for asking me to help proofread this novel! What Goes Down is a special story and touches on sensitive issues. I really liked George and Tony, and I'm glad the ending is full of hope for Ben and Seph. I really liked how Seph's downward spiral was portrayed and how she came out on top with the help of her family, especially the love of her mother. I love how Natalie's characters appear real and they face real issues. I've read all of her books, and I high Many thanks to the author, Natalie Martin, for asking me to help proofread this novel!

    This is the first time I have read anything by Natalie. I’m going to start by saying, it’s no reflection on the book or author but the main character is called Persephone not a common name by any means but the second time I have come across it in a book in the last couple of months so that was a bit disconcerting!

(Persephone is a Greek Goddess for info). What Goes Down is an emotional story, a lot of it we have heard before, Seph discovers at the age of twenty seven that the man she has known all her life as dad is not in fact her biological father, the email from Nico comes as a huge shock to her and puts her whole existence into a tailspin. It is told from Seph’s view and her mother Laurel, thirty years previously. The whole family situation unfolds in slo-mo, the raw reality of mental illness, the complexity of inherited illness, how it affects people all around. It’s a good solid story, easy enough to read in as short amount of time but leaves the reader feeling as though there was something to get absorbed in. I wasn’t overly keen on Seph but as she spirals she does creep into my heart a little. I was keen to see if she could accept her situation and fulfil her dream as an artist. You will have to read to find the outcome! Thanks to the author and Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

    3.5 stars Book Review: When I first heard about What Goes Down, I was really interested in the premise as I knew that it dealt with mental health and often do search for books around this topic. What Goes Down did live up to this notion, being an honest and engaging look at mental health and family. So I should probably get the negatives out the way first.

What Goes Down did live up to this notion, being an honest and engaging look at mental health and family. So I should probably get the negatives out the way first. At times, this book didn't engage me as much as I hoped it would but I feel like this was because it is an adult fiction novel and was about someone who was older than me so I couldn't really relate to there experiences. Saying that this was the only negative to the book that I often found. The plot still did interest me and I was really excited to see where the story would go as we are literally dropped straight into the story from the first page and therefore need and want to find out what happened. There is also a big twist at the end of the book which I was also really shocked about and I just had to read it faster after that. The narrative is also told in a past and present narrative juggling her mum's perspective in the 1980s as well as a present-day narrative. I really do think this worked in the story and developed Laurel, Seph's mum character much more as we really do understand why she does what she does throughout the novel. The development of a mother character is not something that is done often in YA so, therefore, I really liked seeing it in this book. Although, not one for the 1980s setting due to the overload of 80s nostalgia in pop culture this did not affect me when reading. I also really enjoyed Seph as a character and the way that she interacted with her father after they met up and did find her to be quite interested and likeable although she had some bumpy times ahead in the book. I also did like the honest way that this book dealt with mental health as it was dealt with in a careful way although I personally can not say if the portrayal of Bipolar it might be worth seeing if anyone who has the condition says when and if they read the book. This may be slightly weird but I really like the dialogue in the book, it never felt forced and was quite natural which is always something nice to see when reading. The Verdict: What Goes Down is an interesting and engaging novel that balances the past and present as well as family life to make a good, solid read.

    What Goes Down starts off as the story of a woman who discovers that the man she has called Dad all her life is not her biological father. Shock-horror revelations like this are used frequently (too frequently?) by writers to hook their readers into the story and if you like that sort of thing, you’ll love this. The problem for me personally is that being plunged into a catastrophe is too hard and sudden, like being pushed into cold water. I can’t get my bearings, I haven’t orientated myself. We What Goes Down starts off as the story of a woman who discovers that the man she has called Dad all her life is not her biological father. Shock-horror revelations like this are used frequently (too frequently?) by writers to hook their readers into the story and if you like that sort of thing, you’ll love this. The problem for me personally is that being plunged into a catastrophe is too hard and sudden, like being pushed into cold water. I can’t get my bearings, I haven’t orientated myself. We don’t see the characters at their best, for a start, when we meet them mid-crisis. I took an immediate dislike to Seph, who, understandably thrown off course by the news, came over as self-absorbed and whiney. She dealt with the situation in a way which seemed, to me, too immature for her 27 years. Laurel, her mother, didn’t deal with the state of affairs well either. Angst is so tricky to write well, there are few shades of light and dark and I felt the writing was a bit laboured and high pitched in the opening section of the book. BUT, what emerged out of the book was so much more interesting, I am glad I stuck with it. Whether kicked off by the revelation, or whether they had been there all the time, Seph’s bipolar tendencies rise subtly and cleverly to the top. Her shock and anger morphs into a crippling depression which the writer renders with bleak and vivid realism. Emerging from that into a period of frantic work, her bursts of energy and determination cross the line into mania. By this time I was on Seph’s side, worried for her, but able to see why, from her viewpoint, the things she was doing were totally reasonable. The story splits into two, alternating between Seph’s story and her mother’s, thirty years previously, another frequently used narrative technique which can work well, but wasn’t needed here. Laurel’s teenage self was really well done, the obsession of first love, the horror of discovering that the perfect boyfriend has deep and cruel flaws really rang true for me. All in all I liked this book. I wish the writer had structured it differently, chronologically, starting at the beginning and working through to the end. I think the writing is good enough to carry it and the story certainly has the interest and resonance to sustain it. It would have given the characters a better chance to establish themselves in the reader’s minds and would have given the writer more scope to develop the bipolar angle, which is a really interesting and rarely tackled-topic. Patrick Gayle’s Notes from an Exhibition is the only other book I know which handles it.

    What Goes Down was a fabulous read, it was emotional, raw and heart-breaking at times. It was an interesting look at a young woman called Seph who receives an email from her birth father Nico, this was the first time she has heard about this. The book delves into Seph's life in London in present day and also her Mum, Laurel, in the eighties where she meets Nico for the first time.

The book covered a range of subjects and it went in a direction I wasn't expecting, however I loved every minute of it. I loved Seph, she was an interesting character and I really felt like we got to know her and her relationship with both her boyfriend Ben and with her passion for painting. I also loved the chapters by Laurel when she was growing up, there were so many similarities between her and Seph. I'm a huge fan of split timeline books and this was a fabulous book. I enjoyed the journey Natalie took us on through the book from Seph discovering Tony isn't her real dad to learning why Nico left Laurel and Seph. At times it was emotional with Seph trying to get to grips with who her family is while preparing for a big exhibition of her artwork. I highly recommend this book, I couldn't put it down! This will definitely not be the last book I read by Natalie, it was beautifully written and dragged me into the storyline. Huge thank you to TBC on Facebook and Natalie Martin for allowing me to read and review. All views are my own.

    I have enjoyed Natalie Martin's previous books and was very excited to read this one. It does not disappoint. The writer's style grabs you and holds your interest right through to the end. The story is written in two time frames: 1987 and 25 years later. This is done extremely well and gives a great insight into the characters.

This is done extremely well and gives a great insight into the characters. Seph, a talented artist, receives a surprise email from a man called Nico who claims to be her biological father. Seph has had a happy family life with her mum, Laurel, and the man she believed to be her father, Tony. This throws her into turmoil and accelerates the anxiety she is already prone to. We learn about how Laurel and Nico met twenty-five years ago and the fall-out from Nico's unexpected disappearance from Laurel and baby Seph's lives. Seph's brother, George, has always been her rock and I adored his character. Her partner, Ben, appears to add to Seph's anxieties as he travels a lot for business and they appear to live quite separate lives. Seph's biological father, Nico, coming into her life makes Seph reassess her life. The writer deals with the very difficult subject of Bi-Polar and writes a well-researched story into the complexities of mental health and the impact of the sufferer and their friends and family. I highly recommend this book and give it a well-deserved 5*

    Started off slowly but the storyline drew me in - even so when Laurels back story began. A tale of what mental health issues can do to a relationship - the sadness and heartache it can cause. The characters were believable and kept me wanting to find out more. I hope Seph continued to get the help and support she needed. Thank you to TBC and to the author for the chance to read this title.

    4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this book, and thought it handled sensitive issues really well. Some of the scenes hit home pretty hard for me, as someone who has been around a lot of mental illness. For me, the emotions I deal with when arguing with my SO were perfectly captured. I felt a lot of empathy with the characters, and enjoyed the switching between timlines/POVs. Really well written too. Thank you, Natalie!

In the summer of 1987, Nico Papoulis stole Laurel's heart with promises of adventure and excitement. But then he disappeared without trace, leaving her as a single, teenaged parent. Now, twenty-five years later, he's back and keen to meet the daughter he left behind. But Nico's sudden reappearance shows that nothing is quite as it first seems. As long hidden truths are exposed, everything Seph thought she knew begins to unravel, and the one person who can help her the most is the very person Laurel has tried so hard to protect her from. My Thoughts : This is the first book I have read by Natalie K. Martin and I am pleased to say I really enjoyed it. When Seph Powell recieves an email out of the blue from her biological father Nico, her world is turned upside down and she feels her whole life has been a lie. As we progress through the story, it is told from Seph’s view present day and her mother Laurel, thirty years previously. This strongly tells a story of mental illness, Bi polar and how it affects friends and family. This is a very interesting plot and the story is handled with honesty and empathy. Natalie keeps your interest throughout and I believe she has done a lot of research to potray this story well.

    What Goes Down takes you on a journey into surprising territory. When I first started to read it, I anticipated a fairly typical romance story and how the central character, Seph, learnt secrets from the past. However, it is much more than that.

The most impressive part is how it deals with mental health issues, in this case, bi-polar and takes you into the mind of the person who is living with it. You get to see the greater effects it has on all those around and the implications for each new generation. To put it simply, it is in fact, a very clever book. The issue creeps up on you and then suddenly, you realise just where the author is taking you. Sensitively done, you feel empathy for all those involved. When I got used to the swapping between the present day with Seph's story and the 1980's when her mother was young, I found both timelines to be illuminating, the past casting light on the present. You get to see different points of view and to realise that the viewpoint of the person with bi-polar might be unreliable. It is a well-paced story and definitely worth a read. In short: a contemporary story which tackles mental health issues in a sensitive and life affirming way. Thanks to Natalie for a copy of the book.

    Thank you for being given the opportunity to read this book Natalie. I've not read any of your work before but was really intrigued by the subject matter and its something i know very little about. But the way it was handled was great ; handling the complexities of love and family and ultimately the suffering caused by a mental illness. Spanning two timeframes it was well written, and tackled a sensitive subject really well. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    This book has blown me away. This is more than a second chance romance actually. Narrated in dual points of view by mother and daughter, the past and the present, the reader learns a lot about mental illness, the struggle, grief and loss. Most important of all is the extensive info about bipolar disorder and dealing with the symptoms and how it affects the people around you. This is a very enlightening and emotional read one that you must not miss out on. Highly recommended!

    This book is well-written and I felt that it dealt well with mental illness. I’m not sure I liked Seph too much as a character, but I was compelled to keep reading which says a lot about the talent of this author!
