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 absolutely loved Jennifer E. Smith’s Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! I also loved This Is What Happy Looks Like But Statistical Probability has the edge still, because it was one of my very first contemporary YA reads. It holds a special place in my heart. ;) But Jennifer’s books are just so sweet and lovely, and am SO excited for this next one. I’m really curious to see how the long-distance relationship is portrayed, and how it plays out…!

What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?

Link me to your WoW post and I’ll be sure to stop by! :)

  1. I’ve requested this one on Netgalley and am nervously biting my nails waiting for a decision from the publisher! I’ve never read one of Jennifer E Smith’s books, though I always hear great things about Statistical Probability, so I think I’m going to use this one as my introduction to her work. :)

  2. Can you believe I haven’t read any of her books yet? I’ve been hearing a lot of great things lately, so I’m probably going to buy one eventually. I’m just not much of a contemp fan! This one sounds interesting though, so great pick!! :)
