Nobody but Us
Maybe I'm too late. Maybe Zoe's dad stole all her fifteen years and taught her to be scared. I'll undo it. Help her learn to be strong again, and brave. Not that I'm any kind of example, but we can learn together.
When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can't run fast enough.
Maybe it'll take Will years to come to terms with being abandoned. Maybe it'll take forever. I'll stay with him no matter how long it takes to prove that people don't always leave, don't always give up on you.
Praise For Nobody but Us…

“Beautiful, heartbreaking, and exhilarating—NOBODY BUT US will have you holding your breath until the very last page.”
— Kody Keplinger, author of The DUFF and A Midsummer’s Nightmare
“An achingly believable love story about two teens outrunning a society that has failed them, hoping the lights at the end of the highway aren’t just a mirage. Tense, lyrical and heartbreaking; the kind of book that lingers a long time.”
