Blog Tour: Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook + Favorite Quotes


Title: Nobody But Us
Author: Kristin Halbrook
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication date: January 29, 2013

Format: Digital ARC
Pages: 272
They’re young. They’re in love. They’re on the run.

Zoe wants to save Will as much as Will wants to save Zoe. When Will turns eighteen, they decide to run away together. But they never expected their escape to be so fraught with danger....

When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can’t run fast enough.

Nobody But Us, told in alternating perspectives from Will and Zoe, is an unflinching novel, in turns heartbreaking and hopeful, about survival, choices, and love...and how having love doesn’t always mean that you get a happy
 ending. 
Some quotes that I really loved in this book:
"I want it to be always like this. Cars in ditches and tickling and kissing in the weeds because we can't help ourselves. I never want us to be able to help ourselves." - Zoe
"They say you end up with the men who are just like your dad. Right? That you're psychologically predisposed to picking an alcoholic or a cheat or an abandoner, or something like that. I always thought psychology was weird." Zoe
"I'm high. Soaring from the endorphins, soaring away from things I did a long time ago. I'm hungry, too" - Will 
"If they let me leave the state on day, I'm going to Vegas. I'm going to school and become something great, something useful, something that saves. I'm going to bring wrinkled babies into the world for moms and dad who want their children and I'm going to take home the ones who aren't wanted" - Zoe 

inKristin Halbrook is a Seattleite who loves good coffee, good food, good music, good sports, good causes, and good reads. She's both intense and a goofball, introverted and gregarious. Nobody But Us is her debut novel that will be published on the 29th of January, 2012.
