Now in paperback -- a blackout in New York City brings together two teenagers in Jennifer E. Smith's romantic YA novel.
Owen lives in the basement. Lucy lives on the twenty-fourth floor. It's fitting that they meet in the middle -- stuck between two floors of an NYC apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. The brief time they spend together leaves a mark. And as their lives take them in opposite directions, Lucy and Owen stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and phone calls. But can they -- despite the odds and the ocean between them -- find a way to reunite?
The author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is back with another page-turning tale of love, fate, and the power of true connection.
