Hold Back the Stars

Hold Back the Stars

Summary

'A bold new talent' Matt Haig

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.

SOON TO BE A FILM STARRING JOHN BOYEGA AND LETITIA WRIGHT
