With shades of ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES and FIVE FEET APART, THE WORLD BETWEEN US is a powerful and thought-provoking story about falling in love with someone a whole world apart.
Alice may be bed-bound, but every day Stream Cast brings the world to her. From the streets of Tokyo to a masterclass in video games, she experiences other people’s wild and exciting lives all without ever leaving her room. But everything changes when Alice is introduced to a new streamer.
Rowan encourages Alice to stop watching, and start taking control. But Rowan has a secret he’s trying to hide from Alice – and from himself.
As Alice and Rowan build a bigger and more beautiful world together, their secrets threaten to tear them apart. Would you risk everything for love?
This is well-written, [and] sensitive on issues.

From the first page to the last I was hooked, it’s a cliché but I genuinely could not put this marvellous book down.
- Frost Magazine
An intriguing tale…Thoroughly recommend.
One of young adult fiction's most unique voices.
This book is beautiful, heart-breaking and somehow still managed to leave me with a huge smile on my face.
- Lois Reads Books
This book was packed full of emotion - pain and grief but also love and joy. I have a chronic illness, and although mine isn’t as severe as Alice’s to leave me bedbound, I could relate to a lot of the book.

A truly beautiful book.

This is a much needed addition to our YA literary canon…and, oh, what a welcome it deserves.
