A love story for the ages - and a love story for this very moment. This is Baz Luhrmann's ROMEO AND JULIET meets Jennifer Niven's Finch and Violet from ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES.
This isn't a story about anything new. It's about the oldest thing in the world. It's about love.
Sixteen-year-old Izzy, a bright aspiring doctor, isn't happy about her recent move from the Lower East Side across the river to Brooklyn. She feels distanced from her family, especially her increasingly incomprehensible twin brother, as well as her new neighbourhood.
And then she meets Tristan.
Tristan is a chess prodigy who lives with his aunt and looks up to his cousin, Marcus, who has watched out for him over the years. When he and Izzy meet one fateful night, together they tumble into a story as old and unstoppable as love itself.
From an exciting new voice in YA, this is a gripping tale of first love.
