2014 book 253

Shari Goldhagen's In Some Other World, Maybe
This really hit very many of my buttons. It's a beautiful book about four teenagers in three different cities in the early 90s who go see a blockbuster movie based on a (fictional) comic book about alternate worlds--and how their lives, and their families' lives, interconnect over the next twenty years. Is it entirely plausible? Is it peppered with too many coincidences? No and yes, but I didn't care in the slightest, because I loved all these characters and their different paths.  Some really strong writing here--just super solid all around. A.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in January.
