Title: At the Edge of the Universe

This was a deliciously engaging book, with a premise so wonderfully unique you won't know where it's going until it's there. I love these characters from the bottom of my heart--not just because they represent people with identities and issues that are so often either overlooked or even belittled, but also for their warmth, their humanity, their love and hate, triumphs and hurts that feel so utterly real and important. I dare you to try to put this book down once you've picked it up. (I finished it in 2 days flat.) Your heart will never feel the same again.

— From Zazu's Past Picks 3


From the author of We Are the Ants comes "another winner" (Booklist, starred review) about a boy who believes the universe is slowly shrinking as things he remembers are being erased from others' memories.

Tommy and Ozzie have been best friends since the second grade, and boyfriends since eighth. They spent countless days dreaming of escaping their small town--and then Tommy vanished.

More accurately, he ceased to exist, erased from the minds and memories of everyone who knew him. Everyone except Ozzie.

Ozzie doesn't know how to navigate life without Tommy, and soon he suspects that something else is going on: that the universe is shrinking.

When Ozzie is paired up with the reclusive and secretive Calvin for a physics project, it's hard for him to deny the feelings developing between them, even if he still loves Tommy.

But Ozzie knows there isn't much time left to find Tommy--that once the door closes, it can't be opened again. And he's determined to keep it open as long as possible.
