Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm picking:
The Geography of You and Me by
Jennifer E. Smith
April 15th 2014
by Little, Brown for Young Readers
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.
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.
