Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook
To be published: January 29, 2013 by HarperTeen
Bonnie and Clyde meets Simone Elkeles in this addictively heart-wrenching story of two desperate teenagers on the run from their pasts.
They’re young. They’re in love. They’re on the run.
Zoe wants to save Will as much as Will wants to save Zoe. When Will turns eighteen, they decide to run away together. But they never expected their escape to be so fraught with danger....
When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can’t run fast enough.
Nobody But Us, told in alternating perspectives from Will and Zoe, is an unflinching novel, in turns heartbreaking and hopeful, about survival, choices, and love...and how having love doesn’t always mean that you get a happy ending. Described as “beautiful, heartbreaking, and exhilarating” by Kody Keplinger, author of The DUFF, Nobody But Us will prove irresistible to fans of Nina Lacour, Jenny Han, and Sara Zarr. [goodreads]
That is a lot of author name drops for one book description, but I am completely OK with that since they are all authors I would read anything by! I am so curious to know what has caused these two teens to be on the run. This book sounds like it has a lot of drama and tension in it, as well. Those two characteristics are high on my list of what to look for in a YA contemporary.
