Write Review

Rated 0

General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

What would you do if everyone you love disappeared? What if it was your fault? A gripping contemporary YA about a girl left in a town where everyone else has disappeared, from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Matched series.

What would you do if everyone you love disappeared? What if it was your fault?

For July Fielding, nothing has been the same since that summer before senior year.

Once, she had Alex, her loyal best friend, the one who always had her back. She had Sydney, who pushed her during every cross-country run, and who sometimes seemed to know July better than she knew herself. And she had Sam. Sam, who told her she was everything and left her breathless with his touch.

Now, July is alone. Every single person in her small town of Lithia has disappeared. No family. No Alex or Sydney. No Sam. July's only chance at unravelling the mystery of their disappearance is a series of objects, each a reminder of the people she loved most. And a mysterious message: GET TH3M BACK.

A searingly candid reckoning with both love and loneliness, #1 bestselling author Ally Condie's The Only Girl in Town perfectly distils the messy, beautiful realities of growing up, growing apart and the courageous act of self-discovery.


'An outstanding book - intense and beguiling! . . . This is such a powerfully woven story; it would be worthy of study by senior students, but equally it is an enthralling, entertaining (although serious) story for teenagers aged 15+ . . . The kind of story that makes you want to immediately re-read the book' READPLUS

'An eerily beautiful and lyrical story of loss, grief, and how quickly relationships can change, while also changing us' ROBIN BENWAY, National Book Award winner and bestselling author of Far From The Tree and A Year to the Day

'Fast-paced, unputdownable, and full of heart and complicated emotions. As soon as I reached the end, I turned back to the beginning to catch the clues I had missed as I raced through the pages. An unforgettable story' YAMILE SAIED MENDEZ, Pura Belpre Award-winning author of Furia, a Reese's Book Club selection
