Nowhere Near You
"Nowhere Near You tells the story of two boys with unusual health issues who become pen pals. In this sequel to Leah Thomas' Because You'll Never Meet Me, Ollie and Mortiz are taking risks and moving forward with their lives after learning some startling things about their early years. This novel is similar in structure to the first book, with the added interest of Ollie and Mortiz meeting a few kids who have similar issues and pasts to theirs.
