Blog Tour: Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook

Today, we have the pleasure of joining Shane from Itching for Book in hosting a stop for Kristin Halbrook's debut novel, Nobody But Us. For our stop, we are sharing an excerpt of the book along with a tour wide giveaway. Enjoy!

Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook
Publication Date: January 29, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Purchase Link: Amazon

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. Described as “beautiful, heartbreaking, and exhilarating” by Kody Keplinger, author of The DUFF, Nobody But Us will prove irresistible to fans of Nina Lacour, Jenny Han, and Sara Zarr.

Book Excerpts:
I have two excerpts from the book to share. One from Zoe's perspective and one from Will's. Enjoy!!

He presses his face and his hands into my hair and squeezes me to him, as though he could form us into one creature, as though he could form us into a rock structure, unbreakable and unremarkable, that no one would notice out here in the desert. ~Zoe

I pull Zoe up to my mouth and press a kiss to her, a harder kiss than I've ever given. A kiss that burns us both. I memorize her face in that one second it takes for me to make this decision, then I... ~Will
