Holding Up the Universe

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone - and love someone - for who they truly are.

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout.

I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything.

Once dubbed 'America's Fattest Teen', she is only seen for her weight. Not the girl underneath.

Since her mum's death she's been picking up the pieces in private, alone with her heartbroken father.

But now, Libby is ready. She's ready for high school, for new friends, for love and for every possibility life has to offer.

Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin too.

Be charming. Be hilarious. Don't get too close to anyone.

Yes, he's got swagger, but he's also mastered the art of fitting in.

What no one knows is that Jack has a secret: he can't recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him.

He's the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything, but he can't understand what's going on with the inner workings of his own brain.

When Jack and Libby meet, they discover that the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel.

Praise for All the Bright Places:

'[A] heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids' Entertainment Weekly

'At the heart - a big one - of All the Bright Places lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers' The New York Times Book Review

I finished the book in two days, because I couldn´t put it down. The characters are well-written and I liked the chapters being short (making it a really fast read) and switching between the two protagonists. Libby kind of grew on me because she was so powerful even when she felt down and stood up for herself (and didn´t need anyone else to proof her worth). This book isn´t as dark as "all the bright places" but it points out some difficulties we have in our society and are still not ready to overcome. Jennifer Niven knows how to write about problems and difficulties and she is good at it. Her books have depth which means that while reading the story you are thinking about it as well. I would not just recommend her books but herself as an author!

Holding up the universe - you won't be able to stop.

What a great book from Jennifer Niven, I've read it within one day! Libby's and Jack's story is one you won't forget so fast and gets you thinking about your own reactions to stuff like that.
