For fans of Love, Simon and Eleanor and Park, a romantic and sweet novel about a transgender boy who falls in love for the first time—and how first love changes us all—from New York Times bestselling author Amber Smith.
Chris and Maia aren’t off to a great start.
A near-fatal car accident first brings them together, and their next encounters don’t fare much better. Chris’s good intentions backfire. Maia’s temper gets the best of her.
But they’re neighbors, at least for the summer, and despite their best efforts, they just can’t seem to stay away from each other.
The path forward isn’t easy. Chris has come out as transgender, but he’s still processing a frightening assault he survived the year before. Maia is grieving the loss of her older sister and trying to find her place in the world without her. Falling in love was the last thing on either of their minds.
But would it be so bad if it happened anyway?

Review of Something Like Gravity

Review (4 Stars): Something Like Gravity was a touching and heart-provoking story about finding your way after experiencing a heart-breaking loss.  Maia lost her older sister and is trying to pick up the pieces when she meets her next door neighbor, Chris.  Together, these two find that they have an unbreakable connection and learn that you can find love when you least expect it.

I really liked this story and my heart broke for both of these characters. I couldn’t imagine all the things that Chris went through and I was so glad that he found Maia to bring love into his life.  This is a great story that will stick with you long after you finish reading it.
