Like No Other by Una LaMarcheWhen the power goes out, the two are stuck in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make an otherwise forbidden connection. She is a notorious good girl, who has never broken the rules of her strict Hasidic upbringing. He is a fun loving nerd who has never had much luck with girls. Though their families would never approve, the teens arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they possibly go? Just how much are they willing to give up?
The New York Times Book Review
Una LaMarche tells a truly complex urban story worth telling: An Orthodox Jewish girl and West Indian dork fall in love in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and beat the odds of conservative values trying to keep them apart.
You root for Devorah and Jaxon because you remember you were once like them. From our first love or our first rebellion, they are a way for us to relive those strange and exciting days.
.. .romantic and wonderful and heartbreaking...
Like No Other isa moving, coming-of-age storythat will have even adults remembering the burning intensity and insecurities of their first love. VOYA
Devorah s narration iseye-opening, especially for young women who have always taken the rules, spoken and unspoken, of their communities for granted.
Like No Other is a bold and passionate portrayal of the bond that can bridge any gap or surmount any barrier, that universal fire that flickers beneath each of our distinct and sometimes misunderstood identities. The relationship between Devorah and Jaxon is emblematic of the warmth and curiosity that exists in its most pure form in the hearts of young people, a compassion that if nurtured and embraced has the power to transcend the ubiquitous pressure of externally wrought perspectives. Deborah Feldman, author of Exodus and the New York Times bestseller, Unorthodox
