&;One of the most poignant and star-crossed love stories since The Fault in Our Stars.&; &;Entertainment Weekly

Fitting seamlessly alongside current bestsellers like Rainbow Rowell&;s Eleanor & Park, and John Green's Paper Towns, LIKE NO OTHER provides a thoroughly modern take on romance that will inspire laughter, tears, and the belief that love can happen when you least expect it. 

Fate brought them together. Will life tear them apart? 

Devorah is a consummate good girl who has never challenged the ways of her strict Hasidic upbringing. 

Jaxon is a fun-loving, book-smart nerd who has never been comfortable around girls (unless you count his four younger sisters). 

They've spent their entire lives in Brooklyn, on opposite sides of the same street. Their paths never crossed . . . until one day, they did. 

When a hurricane strikes the Northeast, the pair becomes stranded in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make an otherwise risky connection. 

Though their relation is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jax arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they go? Just how much are they willing to give up?

Baker & Taylor
Living on opposite sides of their Brooklyn neighborhood, strict Hasidic Devorah and fun-loving nerd Jaxon forge an unexpected connection when they become trapped in an elevator during a hurricane, after which they pursue a secret romance.

This book was addictive and reminded me of a thriller at times. This star-crossed lovers story is enlightening as well as scary at times, and there were genuine parts where I gasped because I couldn't get over what was happening. LaMarche is super respectful about the Jewish faith in this story, and if anything through Devorah's character, I learned a lot about what it means to have a Hasidic upbringing and yet I couldn't help myself but cheer for her and Jaxon to be together.

An excellent read!

A mediocre read. The characters didn't have much chemistry, in my opinion, and the ending wasn't very surprising.
