Emily Henry's stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler's Wife and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we've left untaken.
Natalie's last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start . . . until she starts seeing the -wrong things.- They're just momentary glimpses at first--her front door is red instead of its usual green, there's a preschool where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn't right.
Then there are the visits from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls -Grandmother, - who tells her, -You have three months to save him.- The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it's as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.

Henry debuts with an intriguing story of two lovestruck teenagers who appear to live in different versions of the same world. Natalie Cleary is about to finish high school, attend Brown University, and leave her small Kentucky town (and her complicated ex-boyfriend) for good. However, her visionsmiddle-of-the-night ones that involve a wise, storytelling woman she calls Grandmotherare now occurring during the day and revealing glimpses of a different town and a gorgeous stranger named Beau. With the deadline in Grandmothers last ominous warning looming (Three months to save him), Natalie hopes that Beau can help her solve the mysteries of Grandmothers vague words and of their separate worlds. Henrys story captivates, both as a romance and as an imaginative rethinking of time and space. The relationship between Beau and Natalie sizzles while also reflecting the innocence of first love, and the unfolding mystery of their changing realities is enough to keep readers turning pages. The complicated final explanation may require rereading, but Henry delivers a story with depth, originality, and complexity. Ages 12up. Agent: Lana Popovic, Chalberg & Sussman. (Jan.)
