Description

New York Times bestselling author of On the Island, Tracey Garvis Graves, presents the compelling, hopelessly romantic audiobook of unconditional love. Annika (rhymes with Monica) Rose is an English major at the University of Illinois. Anxious in social situations where she finds most people's behavior confusing, she'd rather be surrounded by the order and discipline of books or the quiet solitude of playing chess. Jonathan Hoffman joined the chess club and lost his first game-and his heart-to the shy and awkward, yet brilliant and beautiful Annika. He admires her ability to be true to herself, quirks and all, and accepts the challenges involved in pursuing a relationship with her. Jonathan and Annika bring out the best in each other, finding the confidence and courage within themselves to plan a future together. What follows is a tumultuous yet tender love affair that withstands everything except the unforeseen tragedy that forces them apart, shattering their connection and leaving them to navigate their lives alone. Now, a decade later, fate reunites Annika and Jonathan in Chicago. She's living the life she wanted as a librarian. He's a Wall Street whiz, recovering from a divorce and seeking a fresh start. The attraction and strong feelings they once shared are instantly rekindled, but until they confront the fears and anxieties that drove them apart, their second chance will end before it truly begins.

Professional reviews

"The daily discomforts, struggles, and successes of Annika Rose, a young woman on the autism spectrum, are masterfully conveyed in Kathleen McInerney's carefully paced narration. She brings in touches of hopefulness, na•vetŽ and determination. Annika meets Jonathan at a college chess club meeting, and the two begin dating. The story moves back and forth between the two first-person perspectives. Narrator Fred Berman perfectly complements Jonathan's caring nature as well as his growing realization that Annika will not intuitively understand his emotional needs. The audiobook is so much more than a young adult romance. The listener will cheer as Annika learns to better navigate the world with the help of her supportive best friend, Janice, and her family.
