The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World
The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World | Amy Reed
3 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
The Astonishing Color of After meets Eleanor & Park in this breathtaking and beautifully surreal story about a friendship between two teens that just might shake the earth around them or at the very least make them face some painful truths about the nature of what drives us apartand what brings us together. Billy Sloat and Lydia Lemon dont have much in common, unless you count growing up on the same (wrong) side of the tracks, the lack of a mother, and a persistent loneliness that has inspired creative coping mechanisms. When the lives of these two loners are thrust together, Lydias cynicism is met with Billys sincere optimism, and both begin to question their own outlook on life. On top of that, weird happenings including an impossible tornado and an all-consuming fog are cropping up around themmaybe even because of them. And as the two grow closer and confront bigger truths about their pasts, they must also deal with such inconveniences as a narcissistic rock star, a war between unicorns and dragons, and eventually, of course, the apocalypse. With a unique mix of raw emotion, humor, and heart, the surreal plotline pulls readers through an epic exploration of how caring for others makes us vulnerableand how utterly pointless life would be if we didnt.

Thanks to partner NetGalley for the digital ARC of Amy Reed‘s The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World in exchange for an honest review. The book releases today(!), July 9.⠀

From the opening of Amy Reed‘s The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World, we know that her story will be both firmly rooted in our reality and also slightly off from that reality.

For the rest of my review, head over to unabridgedpod.com!

This cover reminds we of We are Still Tornados, but in a different color pallet. I personally like the green, yellow, and black.
