Praise for Like No Other:

“One of the most poignant and star-crossed love stories since The Fault in Our Stars.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Electrifying…surprisingly seductive. LaMarche expertly conjures up what high-stakes infatuation feels like.”—The New York Times Book Review
“[A] refreshing tale of forbidden love.”—People Magazine

“Readers will fall for these two love-struck teenagers as easily as they fall for each other.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Una LaMarche tells a truly complex urban story worth telling: An Orthodox Jewish girl and West Indian dork fall in love in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and beat the odds of conservative values trying to keep them apart.” —

“You root for Devorah and Jaxon because you remember you were once like them. From our first love or our first rebellion, they are a way for us to relive those strange and exciting days.”—The Boston Herald

“…romantic and wonderful and heartbreaking…”—

Like No Other is a moving, coming-of-age story that will have even adults remembering the burning intensity and insecurities of their first love.”—VOYA
“Devorah and Jaxon’s time together is forbidden and precious, making each moment simultaneously infinite and too short. Fans of Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park…will enjoy this story of surprising love.”—School Library Journal

“Devorah’s narration is eye-opening, especially for young women who have always taken the rules, spoken and unspoken, of their communities for granted.”—BCCB
Like No Other is a bold and passionate portrayal of the bond that can bridge any gap or surmount any barrier, that universal fire that flickers beneath each of our distinct and sometimes misunderstood identities. The relationship between Devorah and Jaxon is emblematic of the warmth and curiosity that exists in its most pure form in the hearts of young people, a compassion that if nurtured and embraced has the power to transcend the ubiquitous pressure of externally wrought perspectives.”—Deborah Feldman, author of Exodus and the New York Timesbestseller, Unorthodox

“A perfect depiction of love and loss.”—Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True
