Waiting on Wednesday (26) The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, created by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on:

The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith
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. (Blurb via Goodreads)
Expected publication: April 15, 2014
What are you waiting on?

  1. I think it would be interesting to have a relationship like this, sounds like it might be a fun read, although I seem to recall a movie a while ago that was similar, I am sure this will have its own twist. Thank you for sharing it with us.
