"One of the most poignant and star-crossed love stories since The Fault in Our Stars." --Entertainment Weekly
Fitting seamlessly alongside current bestsellers like Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park
, and John Green's Paper Towns
, 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. Fate brought them together. Will life tear them apart?
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 relation is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jax arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they go? Just how much are they willing to give up?

Romantic and true...you won’t be able to stop thinking about this book. A perfect depiction of love and loss." -Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True
"A heartbreaking story about finding your first true love -- that is also a heart-filling story about finding your own truth." -Nancy Werlin, Edgar Award Winner and National Book Award Finalist
"Like No Other is a powerful and not-put-downable story of forbidden love. Una LaMarche has created two brave teenagers who readers will root for to the very last page." -Carolyn Mackler, bestselling author of Tangled and co-author of The Future of Us
