Thanks to Scholastic Inc and Brianna Bourne for providing Kid Lit Exchange with this advance copy of You & Me at the End of the World. To be released July 20!
And that’s when she finds the only other person in Houston- Leo, also a senior at her school.
While Hannah and Leo try to figure out what has happened - death, apocalypse, the rapture - they learn how to live and view themselves differently than they ever have.
Leo helps Hannah loosen up and have some fun and realize that perhaps ballet is not her journey.
For her part, Hannah offers Leo genuine concern and care, things he has never received in his young life. Leo begins to evaluate the comfort zone he has sunk into - music, drugs, and earning his rep as a player.
As Hannah and Leo navigate new emotional territory, things happening in the world around them become increasingly bizarre.
No spoilers here, but there is a twist and if you pay close attention to the foreshadowing, you just might figure it out. I didn’t 😆
Look for it in bookstores in July!
