Description

Fitting seamlessly alongside current bestsellers like Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park, and John Green's Paper Towns, LIKE NO OTHER provides a thoroughly modern take on romance that will inspire laughter, tears, and the belief that love can happen when you least expect it. "Electrifyingsurprisingly seductive. LaMarche expertly conjures up what high-stakes infatuation feels like." -The New York Times Book Review "[A] refreshing tale of forbidden love."-People Magazine "One of the most poignant and star-crossed love stories since The Fault in Our Stars." -Entertainment Weekly Fate brought them together. Will life tear them apart? Devorah is a consummate good girl who has never challenged the ways of her strict Hasidic upbringing. Jaxon is a fun-loving, book-smart nerd who has never been comfortable around girls (unless you count his four younger sisters). They've spent their entire lives in Brooklyn, on opposite sides of the same street. Their paths never crossed...until one day, they did. When a hurricane strikes the Northeast, the pair becomes stranded in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make an otherwise risky connection. Though their relationship is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jaxon arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they go? Just how much are they willing to give up?

Professional reviews

"Phoebe Strole's earnest, hopeful portrayal of Hasidic Devorah Blum creates a compelling duet with Leslie Odom, Jr.'s, passionate, eager depiction of Caribbean nerd Jaxon Hunte. When Devorah and Jax are trapped in a Brooklyn elevator during a hurricane, an unlikely love blossoms, and they find themselves wrangling with heavy societal and cultural obstacles. Dual narrators are an effective choice in a story that alternates viewpoints with each chapter, and Strole and Odom interweave their stories gracefully. Strole imbues Devorah with a solid voice and strong convictions as Odom lends humor and urgency to Jax's conflicting emotions. For those who favor romance in their coming-of-age tales.
