Early Praise for The Geography of You and Me

I’ve been lucky enough to get some really lovely blurbs for my new novel, which will be out on April 15th, 2014, and I wanted to share some of them here:

“Smith captures the romantic sparks that fly in unusual situations and the way love can build even when circumstances keep people apart. If you like your romances with a bit of European adventure, some New York glamour and a lot of honest heart, this one’s for you.
– E. Lockhart, author of The Boyfriend List and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

“The greatest space between two people is measured in emotions, not miles. The Geography of You and Me is a true, tender long-distance love story guaranteed to strike a resonant chord in hopeful romantics everywhere.”
–Megan McCafferty, bestselling author of the Jessica Darling series and Bumped

“Jennifer E. Smith represents the absolute best in YA writing, and readers will carry this poignant love story in their hearts far after the last sentence is read.”
–Susane Colasanti, bestselling author of When It Happens

“The Geography of You and Me is a magic, magic book. It will take you to a place we all want to live, where true love overcomes any distance.”
–Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True

“If it was just a travel story or just a love story, The Geography of You and Me would still be perfect, but it’s both and more. I loved this book!”
–-Lauren Morrill, author of Meant to Be and Being Sloane Jacobs

Statistical Probability…in paperback!

It’s been about a year since The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight came out, and I just wanted to say thanks to all those who have read it, written to me about it, or otherwise supported it. I’ve so loved hearing from everyone!

And to those who haven’t read it yet, the paperback edition is just about out now. You can buy a copy here, among other places:
