"For fans of Sarah Dessen and Rainbow Rowell, a moving story about loss and love and finding out who you really are.” - Paige McKenzie, New York Times Best Selling author of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl
A sob-worthy yet hopeful novel that reveals how our choices define us and how no matter the road, love finds a way.
Stevie Rosenstein has never fallen in love. Constantly moving from city to city for her father's job, she can’t allow herself to grow truly close to someone. The pain of leaving hurts too much.
Until she meets Drew…
Drew and Shane have been best friends through everything. The death of Shane's dad. The separation of Drew's parents. No matter what happens, they always have each others' backs.
But when Stevie moves to town, a simple coin toss alters the course of their year in profound and unexpected ways – a ripple effect that also produces devastating consequences.
Told in dual timelines, debut author Jennie Wexler's Where It All Lands delivers a heartbreaking, Sliding Doors-esque novel about missed opportunities, second chances, and all the paths that lead us to where we are.
"This book succeeds in creating all the feels." - Kirkus
Praise for Where It All Lands:
"A moving story about loss and love and finding out who you really are, this debut novel by Jennie Wexler is refreshing and deep. For fans of Sarah Dessen and Rainbow Rowell this novel is heartfelt and honest with a touch of mystery. You won’t regret adding this to you TBR pile!"- Paige McKenzie, New York Times Best Selling author of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl
“Heartfelt and surprising. Stevie, Shane, and Drew are endearing, memorable characters, and their story illustrates how even the smallest twist of fate can have an enormous impact―but somehow love always knows exactly where to land.” ―Alyssa Sheinmel, New York Times bestselling author of A Danger to Herself and Others and What Kind of Girl
"If your book club likes to indulge in good young adult novel, Where It All Lands is the perfect pick...heart wrenching [about] how both choices and chance can change an outcome in the blink of an eye." - She Reads
Interesting premise of two different timelines and how things can change with a flip of a coin, I just felt myself struggling to get through this book. It was cute and an easy read and newer concept that isn't written about a lot, I just couldn't connect with the characters. I am going to try to read this again when I'm not reading a ton of romcoms and comparing how each makes me feel.
This would be great for a teen who is looking to get into reading and wants a unique story.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC of this in exchange for my honest review.
