Thank you Harper Teen and Edelweiss for sending me a copy of this book for review!

Summary:
Bonnie and Clyde meets IF I STAY in this addictively heart-wrenching story of two desperate teenagers on the run from their pasts.

They’re young. They’re in love. They’re on the run.

Zoe wants to save Will as much as Will wants to save Zoe. When Will turns eighteen, they decide to run away together. But they never expected their escape to be so fraught with danger....

When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can’t run fast enough.

Nobody But Us, told in alternating perspectives from Will and Zoe, is an unflinching novel, in turns heartbreaking and hopeful, about survival, choices, and love...and how having love doesn’t always mean that you get a happy ending. Described as “beautiful, heartbreaking, and exhilarating” by Kody Keplinger, author of The DUFF, Nobody But Us will prove irresistible to fans of Nina Lacour, Jenny Han, and Sara Zarr.

My Review:
I wasn't really sure what to expect with Nobody But Us when I first started it. Happily, I really liked Nobody But Us, it was a really great contemporary read and I'm really glad I liked it!

I definitely loved the plot of Nobody But Us, definitely different then other contemporary novels I have read but I really enjoyed this one! I liked how the story was told from both characters perspective so we really got to see what both Will and Zoe were thinking. I also liked seeing how both characters grow throughout the novel. I also really liked Kristin Halbrook's writing style! Very different then what I usually read but it was really well written.

The only thing I didn't love was the ending! Oh man..definitely not what I expected at ALL. I was very shocked by what happens at the end. I'm not giving away any spoilers but the ending was really shocking. I guess sometimes shocking endings are better than predictable ones...and I really didn't see this one coming at all.

Overall, Nobody But Us was a really enjoyable reading! I didn't love the ending but other than that I really liked it! If your looking for a fastpaced contemporary read check this one out!
