Summary (cr: goodreads)

Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

Lucy and Owen's relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and -- finally -- a reunion in the city where they first met.

A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith's new novel shows that the center of the world isn't necessarily a place. It can be a person, too. 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is the 3rd book that I have read by Jennifer Smith (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, This is what Happy Looks Like) and as per chick-lit standards, it didn't disappoint..although there were parts that I was bored. This story is about unexpected meetings, the value of change and holding on. Owen and Lucy were two people coping with change, one moving on from a loss and the other leaving her safe zone doing something she really wanted to do. Both of them literally have worlds apart between them geographically and they start to grow up as they experience life.

Till the next read...
