Adapted for young readers from his adult memoir, Just Don't Fall is the the hilarious true story about Josh Sundquist's battle with childhood cancer and how he worked his way to making the United States paralympic ski team.

The inspiration for the Apple TV show Best Foot Forward!


When he was ten years old Josh Sundquist had his leg amputated to treat bone cancer. But this is not a sad story; on the contrary, this memoir is a story of resilience, heart, and most importantly: humor.

Young Josh had a lot of adapting to do after he lost his leg. He had to learn how to walk again. He had to accept that he wouldn't be able to try out for the travel soccer team. He knew his life would never be the same again. But when he sees a poster in the hospital elevator advertising skiing classes, he realized all might not be lost.

Equal parts heartbreaking and hilarious, Just Don't Fall is Josh's story of surviving cancer with 50/50 odds, learning to be a professional skiier, and making his way to being a bestselling writer and motivational speaker. Inspirational and moving, Josh's story is one that can be appreciated by readers of all ages.
Josh Sundquist is a Paralympian, comedian, and internet creator. He's the author of the national bestselling Just Don't Fall, the novel Love and First Sight, the YA memoir We Should Hang Out Sometime, and Semi-Famous. His memoirs are in development for film and television by major studios and streaming services. Josh travels the globe as a motivational speaker for conferences and conventions. Josh is best known to his millions of internet followers for his Halloween costumes. He and his wife Ashley live in California, near the beach.
