Review of Nowhere Near You by Leah Thomas

Title: Nowhere Near You

Author: Leah Thomas

Synopsis: Ollie and Moritz might never meet, but their friendship knows no bounds. Their letters carry on as Ollie embarks on his first road trip away from the woods–no easy feat for a boy allergic to electricity–and Moritz decides which new school would best suit an eyeless boy who prefers to be alone. Along the way they meet other teens like them, other products of strange science who lead seemingly normal lives in ways Ollie and Moritz never imagined possible: A boy who jokes about his atypical skeleton; an aspiring actress who hides a strange deformity; a track star whose abnormal heart propels her to victory. Suddenly the future feels wide open for two former hermits. But even as Ollie and Moritz dare to enjoy life, they can’t escape their past, which threatens to destroy any progress they’ve made. Can these boys ever find their place in a world that might never understand them?

Rate: 4/5

My Thoughts:

This is the companion book to Because You’ll Never Meet Me, and honestly I liked it better than BYNMM. I don’t even remember how book 1 ended tbh. Was it the beginning of the road trip? Ahh I don’t know.

Again, Ollie and Moritz’s relationship continues to grow. I really like how it grows, and how they have their problems like anyone else but no matter what, ultimately they always have each other’s backs.

OMG the ending though ?! We were under the impression if they met it would kill one or both of them. But they met!! Leah can’t end it like this, we need a third book! Or a book/duology of them together or something. We need to know what happens to them!
