Waiting on: Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook

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.

Broken boy, broken girl. Nobody to lean on but one another. They both need saving. THEY NEED TO SAVE EACH OTHER. My heart, it SINGS when reading this synopsis. This book is reeking of desperation and angst and the good old "heart in a vice" pain that so many love stories are made of. Plus, with the exception of Nina LaCour, I've read and loved books by all the authors listed. I need this book!

Nobody But Us will be published January 13, 2013.
