This week I'm waiting for...
Release Date: April 15, 2014
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.
I've never read a book involving a long distance relationship and this simply sounds brilliant! Not to mention the fact that it's written by Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and This Is What Happy Looks Like. I've enjoyed both of her books and I can tell that this one if not going to disappoint.
Have a good week,
