Summary: Still reeling from her little brother’s drowning death, a girl finds her herself holding back – from summer trips to the ocean, friendship, budding romance – till she meets another young boy who may be her brother’s reincarnation, which awakens her to new possibilities.I'm a little wary of the reincarnation thing, but I really loved The Pull of Gravity by this author, so I'm going to trust her!
Summary: Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father. Lucy and Owen's relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and -- finally -- a reunion in the city where they first met.I loved The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and I love "it happened in one night" stories like Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and this even sounds a little like Griffin and Sabine -- remember that one back from the 1990s? All I know is that Jennifer E. Smith is genius at coming up with clever mash-up concepts!
