Waiting on Wednesday: Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook

Nobody But Us
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.
Okay, let me break down this description to give you guys a better understanding as to why I can't wait to read this.
I have always loved the Bonnie and Clyde story maybe it's my inner romantic colliding with my inner...badass? But the part about that meeting If I Stay?! Yeah that hooked me.

I love hearing both sides in a novel. Great examples of that are Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt, Dash and Lily's book of Dares and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist both by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.
