What's New? Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven


Guys! You have no idea how excited I am for this new book by Jennifer Niven! I loved All The Bright Places, it was one of my favorite books of last year and now that I know about her new book I'm dying to read it. It sounds so different and yet lovely.
Check it out!

Expected publication: October 4th 2016 

Holding Up the Universe
Holding Up The Universe 

Everyone knows Libby Strout. She’s the girl who was so heavy she had to be lifted out of her house by a crane. After being homeschooled for years, she’s ready to rejoin the human race, aka the junior class of MVB High. She’s free, she’s strong, and she’s going to get through this—or so she lies to herself. (Okay, fine, she’s terrified out of her skull.)

Everyone knows Jack Masselin, too. He may not be the most popular guy in school, but he’s got swagger. What no one knows is that Jack has a secret: his brain is different, or maybe a little broken, and he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. But he’s made it this far, and he just has to keep it up: 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 exhilarating, heart-wrenching love story about finding that person who sees you for who you are—and seeing them right back.



  1. This looks good!! I still need to read All the Bright Places as well.

  2. I saw the buzz over this one! To be honest, I'm not into YA tough-issue contemporary at all, but I know how well the author's debut novel did. I doubt I'll read her stuff but I hope you and everyone else enjoys this new book!

    Have a great week, Lis. :)
