"First, let me say that this is one of the top 5 books I've read all year. I don't read a lot of YA. It isn't the genre that holds the most interest for me but, man, I was sucked right in to the story." — Amazon


"This book broke me before it slowly pieced me together in jagged little shards. West and Malcolm are...sweet, imperfect, heartbreaking, hopeful, and beautiful."

— Amazon


  1. I meet West at a concert, and he decides we should be boyfriends for the night.

  2. We kiss on the subway.

  3. In the morning, he begs me to see him again.

  4. I drive out to his place in Jersey, where we wear fur hats in his hot tub during a blizzard, drinking nonalcoholic mint juleps, no parents in sight.

  5. We catch snowflakes on our tongues.

  6. He recites poetry in public.


Is this real life?

But as I see West more and more, the cracks begin to show. Maybe my manic pixie dream boy isn't what he seems. Maybe manic pixie dream boys are too weird for the real world, anyway. Maybe my high school would eat him alive. Maybe West is the weird kid.

Maybe I don't want to be the weird kid with him.

But what if one person's weird is another person's beautiful?

From internationally best selling author Annabeth Chatwin comes a book about wild love slamming against hard reality, and choices we make to believe in each other, despite stories the world may want to tell us.
