Staff Reviews


It’s Pride Month, so I wanted to bring back one of my favorite LGBTQ+ books from last year. Picture Normal People, but with two queer women of color on a rollercoaster of a relationship from the moment they meet in college. You’ll be thinking about Eleanor and Leena for a long time to come.

— Sarah

Description


A college fling between two women turns into a lifelong connection--and spells out a new kind of love story for a millennial, immigrant America.

"A sweetly poignant look at the transformative power of young love." --O, The Oprah Magazine

In 2004, college students Eleanor Suzuki and Leena Shah meet in an elevator. Both girls are on the brink of adulthood, each full of possibility and big ideas, and they fall into a whirlwind romance. Years later, Eleanor and Leena collide on the streets of San Francisco. Although grown and changed and each separately partnered, the two find themselves, once again, irresistibly pulled back together.

Emily Hashimoto's debut novel perfectly captures the wonder and confusion of growing up and growing closer. Narrated in sparkling prose, A World Between follows two strikingly different but interconnected women as they navigate family, female friendship, and their own fraught history.

About the Author
