"Waiting On" Wednesday (#34) The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
The Geography of You and Me by
Expected publication: April 15th 2014 by Little, Brown for Young Readers

From Goodreads: 

Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

Lucy and Owen's relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and -- finally -- a reunion in the city where they first met.

A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith's new novel shows that the center of the world isn't necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.

Why I'm Waiting:
I haven't made it any secret that Jennifer E. Smith is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  I can't wait to read this book.  In a world with way to many series, I love a good standalone.  I really need this book in my hands right now.

  2. I've already added this one to my TBR list. Contemporary + YA + Standalone. You don't see that very often, which is why I started reading some of Sarah Dessen's books recently.
