Fitting seamlessly alongside current best sellers like Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park and John Green's Paper Towns, Like No Other provides a thoroughly modern take on romance that will inspire laughter, tears, and the belief that love can happen when you least expect it.
Fate brought them together. Will life tear them apart? Devorah is a consummate good girl who has never challenged the ways of her strict Hasidic upbringing. Jaxon is a fun-loving, book-smart nerd who has never been comfortable around girls (unless you count his four younger sisters). They've spent their entire lives in Brooklyn on opposite sides of the same street. Their paths never crossed...until one day they did.
When a hurricane strikes the Northeast, the pair become stranded in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make an otherwise risky connection. Though their relationship is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jaxon arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how far can they go? Just how much are they willing to give up?

I enjoyed this audio book very much. The characters were young and respectful. I chose this book because it took place in Brooklyn where I grew up in Williamsburg.
