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.

All I needed to hear to want to read this book was "Bonnie and Clyde meets If I Stay"...Say no more!

2013 has just kicked off with some Epic novels and Nobody But Us definitely joins the group! This book was utterly unputdownable!

Let me just rave about the writing; The author executed this novel perfectly! I loved her writing style! It contributed to the overall reading experience of this novel. It was simple, yet provided so much energy. She definitely entered the YA scene with a bang!

The first half of the novel is character development. Introducing Zoe and Will and their tragic back stories. I fought back tears during the first half of the novel. However the second half was a completely different story! Aside from flying through the pages with my heart pounding through my chest, I couldn't find back the tears.

AND THAT ENDING!! Really?! Kristin Halbrook definitely gets points for the jaw-dropping factor!

Nobody But Us goes down in debut history in my books! Heartbreaking and beautifully written!
