For fans of Jojo Moyes and Eleanor Oliphant
SOMEWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE
by Lia Louis
Agent: Juliet Mushens (Caskie Mushens)
12 years ago, Lizzie James lost her mind, her Grandad, and her best friend, Roman, all in one year. But when a letter arrives 12 years too late, dated the day Roman disappeared, Lizzie starts to discover what really happened the year her life fell apart — and all avenues lead back to him. Who sent her the letter, and is Roman really out there somewhere?
Lizzie is a warm and engaging heroine, and her quest to find Roman – and in the process, to find herself – makes for a charming read. The novel deals with mental health, first love, and friendship, and is a moving and hopeful read.
