Description

From Amy Zhang, the acclaimed author of Falling into Place, comes a heart-wrenching new novel about best friends on a collision course with reality. Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That's how it's been since they were children, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It's the perfect friendship-as long as no one finds out about it.

Review quote

"Zhang's effortless exploration of the complex intersection of memory and perception, and intricate, menace-laden plot is a perfect fit for fans of E. Lockhart's compelling We Were Liars." -- Booklist (starred review) "Zhang does a wonderful job of creating characters. ...She creates a plot line that will be believable among most teens about secrets that are and are not shared. This will make a great pairing with Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review) "A dark, complicated tale, steeped in obsession [and] painful secrets...this is most definitely a novel that will have fans talking." -- Kirkus "Zhang switches between Janie's thoughts before the fire and Micah's after, bridging the two with unsettling fractured fairy tales from Janie's senior English project...Zhang's subject and tone recall books like Paper Towns and Thirteen Reasons Why." -- Publishers Weekly
