Hold Back the Stars

'The most unique love story I've read in years' Rowan Coleman



Ninety minutes.

A few years from now, not too far in the future, two people meet.

It is a classic story of boy meets girl.

Except that it's not.

When we find them, they have an hour and a half left.

Unless they can save themselves, they won't survive.

The clock is ticking.


Bittersweet and life-affirming, Hold Back the Stars is the love story of the year.
