Book Raid: Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook plus Giveaway
SYNOPSIS. Bonnie and Clyde meets If I Stay 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.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR. Kristin Halbrook is a Seattleite who loves good coffee, good food, good music, good sports, good causes and good reads. She’s both intense and a goofball, introverted and gregarious. NOBODY BUT US is her debut novel.
Provide us a short quote or two from NOBODY BUT US.
I lift my knees to my chest as I jump and Will spins around completely as he jumps and we're doing the craziest things with our arms and he hits his head on the ceiling with a cracking noise, but doesn't stop, just hollers "OW!" and laughs and we're flying, shaking the blood in our veins like a baby's abused rattle and my brain starts to hurt. But I don’t mind. It doesn't matter until Will collapses in a pile of heavy breathing on the bed and I crumple next to him. We reach for each other at the same time and kiss, gasping for air in quick spurts and still laughing because this is life. It happened to us before, terrible things, and even not-so-terrible things, but now we're going to happen to it. We're going to decide and create and play and laugh and forget how to draw air in because we're so consumed with beauty and with possibility with each other.
