Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook

Bonnie and Clyde meets If I Stay in this addictively heart-wrenching story of two desperate teenagers on the run from their pasts.
They’re young. They’re in love. They’re on the run.
Zoe wants to save Will as much as Will wants to save Zoe. When Will turns eighteen, they decide to run away together. But they never expected their escape to be so fraught with danger....
When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can’t run fast enough.
Nobody But Us, told in alternating perspectives from Will and Zoe, is an unflinching novel, in turns heartbreaking and hopeful, about survival, choices, and love...and how having love doesn’t always mean that you get a happy ending.

Nobody but Us by Kristin Halbrook is a cross breed between Romeo and Juliet and Grand Theft Auto. It starts off as a normal love story and quickly escalates into more then Will and Zoe, the main characters and lovers, could have imagined. This book reeks of a sappy love story waiting to be read. Unfortunately, the abrupt ending leaves you wanting more, but don't let that scare you away, as this is one of the most interesting contemporary books I have read.

This book hits shelves January of 2013!

  1. I've got this one waiting on my shelf and I'm really intrigued by the Romeo & Juliet/Bonnie & Clyde type storyline. It definitely sounds different than most contemps I've read :0)
