Holding Up the Universe

(13)
A New York Times Bestseller

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone-and love someone-for who they truly are.

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed "America's Fattest Teen." But no one's taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom's death, she's been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby's ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything.

Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he's got swagger, but he's also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can't recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He's the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything in new and bad-ass ways, but he can't understand what's going on with the inner workings of his brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don't get too close to anyone.

Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game-which lands them in group counseling and community service-Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. . . . Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.

Jennifer Niven delivers another poignant, exhilarating love story about finding that person who sees you for who you are-and seeing them right back.

"Niven is adept at creating characters. . . . [Libby's] courage and body-positivity make for a joyful reading experience." --The New York Times

"Holding Up the Universe . . . taps into the universal need to be understood. To be wanted. And that's what makes it such a remarkable read." -TeenVogue.com, "Why New Book Holding Up the Universe Is the Next The Fault in Our Stars"

"Want a love story that will give you all the feels? . . . You'll seriously melt!" -Seventeen Magazine

„Wow!“

Judith Fekete, Thalia-Buchhandlung Darmstadt

Selten habe ich eine Geschichte mit so unglaublich authentischen, liebevollen Charakteren gelesen. Man ist ab der ersten Seite im Geschehen gefangen und ich konnte das Buch gar nicht aus der Hand legen.
Libby ist ein so tolles Mädchen, man mag sie am liebsten sofort als Freundin haben.
Wenn du also ein besondere Geschichte mit riiiiiichtig viel Herz suchst, lies dieses Buch!

I finished the book in two days, because I couldn´t put it down. The characters are well-written and I liked the chapters being short (making it a really fast read) and switching between the two protagonists. Libby kind of grew on me because she was so powerful even when she felt down and stood up for herself (and didn´t need anyone else to proof her worth). This book isn´t as dark as "all the bright places" but it points out some difficulties we have in our society and are still not ready to overcome. Jennifer Niven knows how to write about problems and difficulties and she is good at it. Her books have depth which means that while reading the story you are thinking about it as well. I would not just recommend her books but herself as an author!

What a great book from Jennifer Niven, I've read it within one day! Libby's and Jack's story is one you won't forget so fast and gets you thinking about your own reactions to stuff like that.
