This Is Where the World Endsis the newest book by Amy Zhang. The story is told in alternating points of view where one story starts from now leading back to "the event" and the other story starting from the beginning leading up to "the event". I could not put this book down. I read it in less than 24 hours.
My rating: 4.5 stars
Summary from goodreads:
Janie and Micah, Micah
and Janie. That’s how it’s been ever since elementary school, when Janie
Vivien moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not.
Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie
loves art. It’s the perfect friendship—as long as no one finds out about
it. But then Janie goes missing and everything Micah thought he knew
about his best friend is colored with doubt.
Using a nonlinear
writing style and dual narrators, Amy Zhang reveals the circumstances
surrounding Janie’s disappearance in a second novel.
