The Breakfast Club meets One Day in Floored, a unique collaborative novel by seven bestselling and award-winning YA authors: Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood.
When they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t admit it, and who used to have a poster of Dawson on her bedroom wall, and Joe, who shouldn’t be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.
And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year.

Do you believe in Destiny? Or do you believe that everything that happens; everyone you cross paths with in your life is just coincidence?
If you have answered either of the questions above as Yes; then you definitely need to read this book!
Seven (7) wonderful YA authors coming together to write one story about 6 different as can be teenagers – Joe, Sasha, Dawson, Kaitlyn, Velvet and Hugo – who come together just at the right time for them to be irrevocably joined together for the foreseeable future!
These 6 teenagers find themselves in the lift; with different agendas; but with a 7th person – Steven, who unwittingly becomes the linchpin; the reason why these 6 teenagers are bonded together for the foreseeable future!
Floored is not a story; but a journey & we get 6 different POVs – mistakes are made, feelings are hurt, hearts are broken & ambitions are changed – but throughout all the changes of life and personality; these 6 still remain in touch their bond growing stronger with each year passes!
Floored is an ambitious project for sure – it definitely would be a hit/miss for most readers; there were parts that I honestly didn’t like or didn’t connect with & there was drama that I honestly didn’t like nor did I actually believe in the decisions made by them.
I did, however, enjoy the time I spent with this book; though it is uncertain if I will ever be back for a replay!
