Holding Up the Universe

Knopf Books for Young Readers

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, but no one seems able to look past her weight. Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too — he's charming, he's cool — but he has a secret: he can't recognize faces. When Libby and Jack meet through a cruel high school game, they form an improbable friendship and start to feel less alone. 

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone—and love someone—for who they truly are.
