Waiting on Wednesday #13: The Geography of You and Me

I am jaded against teen romance novels, and I tend to avoid them on principle. Jennifer E. Smith is slowly changing my opinion on the matter, though. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was absolutely wonderful (and one of my all time favorite romance novels, at that) and This Is What Happy Looks Like was equally delightful.

Her new novel, The Geography of You and Me, is about Lucy and Owen who get stuck in an elevator together during a city-wide blackout. Once they are rescued, they spend the night in each other’s company before they both travel to opposite sides of the globe. Once separated, they struggle to keep in contact with each other in a long-distance relationship.

The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

Release Date: April 15, 2014

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.
