Description

"One of the most poignant and star-crossed love stories since"The Fault in Our Stars.""
-"Entertainment Weekly "
"Refreshing tale of forbidden love."
-"People" magazine
"LaMarche tells a truly complex urban story worth telling."
- Vogue.com
Devorah is a consummate good girl who has never challenged the ways of her strict Hasidic upbringing. Jaxon is a fun-loving, book-smart nerd who has never been comfortable around girls (unless you count his four younger sisters). They've spent their entire lives in Brooklyn, on opposite sides of the same street. Their paths never crossed . . . until one day, they did.
When a hurricane strikes the Northeast, the pair becomes stranded in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make an otherwise risky connection. Though their relationship is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jaxon arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they go? Just how much are they willing to give up?
In the timeless tradition of "West Side Story" while fitting seamlessly into place alongside current bestsellers like Rainbow Rowell's "Eleanor & Park," "LIKE NO OTHER" provides a thoroughly modern take on romance that will inspire laughter, tears, and the belief that love can happen when you least expect it.
