Eevee is a promising young artist and the governor's daughter in a city where censorship is everywhere and security is everything. When a fire devastates her exhibition--years in the making--her dreams of attending an elite art institute are dashed. She's struggling to find inspiration when she meets Danny.

Raised in a foster home, Danny's life has always been full of hurt and hardship--until a glitch in the universe changes everything. Suddenly Danny is living in a home he's never seen with the parents he's never known. It's like he's a new Danny--but this alternate self has secrets--ties to an underground anarchist group that have already landed him in hot water. When he starts to develop feelings for Eevee he's even more disturbed to learn that he might have started the fire that ruined her work. As Danny sifts through clues from his past and Eevee attempts to piece together her future, they uncover a secret that's bigger than both of them. Together, they must correct the breach between the worlds before it's too late.


I really like this book trailer. My first thought was, I'd pick the book up based on the trailer alone. My second thought, is that I feel like it compliments the book well. What do you think of the trailer? 

 WHILE YOU WERE GONE by Amy K. Nichols (Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers | On sale August 4, 2015 | Ages 12 and up). Told with alternating perspectives, WHILE YOU WERE GONE explores the chaos theory, time travel, and their philosophical implications, and is a riveting read for both teens and adults.

·         Sci-Fi + Romance: Similar to Cinder or Across the Universe, there is some serious chemistry to draw girl readers.
·         Brainy, Kicka** Heroine: Eevee is a brilliant artist who eschews her privileged background to stand up for what is right.
·         Crossover Appeal: Adult-friendly concept and technology themes make this a natural crossover read.

"Dynamic, dizzying, and downright daring, Now That You're Here kept me guessing until the end, and ready for the next."
– Shannon Messenger, author of Let the Sky Fall
