From the author of my hysterical sobbing jag of 2015 (Or as it was sold under, All the Bright Things) comes the sweet, romantic story of Libby and Jack. Libby was once the world’s fattest teen. Now, years later she has lost half of her weight and is about to return to regular school. Jack passes himself off as a normal guy, but has realized that he has prosopagnosia, which means that he can’t recognize faces. Even his immediate family and friends are complete blanks.
The resulting book gets kind of touchy feely and there’s some difficult issues stuff, but it’s honestly a lot better than it sounds. I didn’t cry as much as with Niven’s last book, but I did cry.
