Wishlist Wednesday #11: Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

Welcome to my 11th Wishlist Wednesday, a meme by Pen to Paper! It is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it’s entirely up to you), that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

Love Is the Higher Law Genre: YA Contemporary
Published: August 25, 2009 by Knopf Books for Young Readers
Length: 176 pages

First there is a Before, and then there is an After. . . .

The lives of three teens—Claire, Jasper, and Peter—are altered forever on September 11, 2001. Claire, a high school junior, has to get to her younger brother in his classroom. Jasper, a college sophomore from Brooklyn, wakes to his parents’ frantic calls from Korea, wondering if he’s okay. Peter, a classmate of Claire’s, has to make his way back to school as everything happens around him.

Here are three teens whose intertwining lives are reshaped by this catastrophic event. As each gets to know the other, their moments become wound around each other’s in a way that leads to new understandings, new friendships, and new levels of awareness for the world around them and the people close by.

When I saw September 11, 2001 I was just like “I HAVE TO READ THIS.”

    Interesting synopsis. I like books that use real events in their storylines, so I’ll definitely be checking this one out. I hope you’ll get to read it soon. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve seen the book before and I’ve kind of like the synopsis myself, I know it’s on my TBR pile. 🙂

    Hope you get it soon!
