Pris 299,00

Henry Page har aldri vært forelsket. Han ser på seg selv som en håpløs romantiker, men den store, hjertebankende, kan-ikke-spise, kan-ikke-sove – forelskelsen har bare ikke truffet ham ennå. Henry har vært fornøyd med å konsentrere seg om skolen, om å få ålreite karakterer, og kanskje til og med bli redaktør for skoleavisen. Så – den tredje tirsdagen i tredjeklasse på high school – dukker Grace Town opp i klassen hans.

Grace er ikke akkurat en Henry ville tenke på som drømmejenta. Hun går med stokk, kler seg i altfor store gutteklær, og bryr seg fint lite om utseendet. Det er ingen tvil om at noe ved Grace har gått i stykker, men for Henry gjør det henne bare enda vakrere, og mer enn noe annet vil han hjelpe henne å bli hel igjen. Og Henry vet, med hele seg, at fra nå av vil ingenting bli som før.

Debutromanen til den 26 år gamle australske forfatteren Krystal Sutherland skildrer forholdet mellom Henry Page og Grace Town, to svært forskjellige unge mennesker som mot alle odds faller for hverandre. En fantastisk roman som både berører og engasjerer. —Teen Vogue

Kirkus

Two teenagers suffer through their first heartbreak. Henry Page has spent his high school years with his nose to the grindstone, avoiding romantic relationships and focusing on becoming the editor of the school paper. At the start of his senior year Henry is offered the job, but there's a catch: transfer student Grace Town is offered the gig as well, making the two white teens co-editors. Sparks fly as Henry works with the aloof, unkempt new girl, who walks with a cane. As Henry and Grace grow closer, Henry falls deeper for her even as he learns just how broken she is. In her debut, Sutherland mixes her love story with equal parts hope and ominous dread. There is never any doubt that this couple is marching toward romantic oblivion, but it's an effectively drawn journey. The characters speak with a John Green-esque voice, but they are never overbearingly precocious. Narrator Henry's a smartly rendered character, a decent kid who has goals and works hard to achieve them. His new goal is Grace's affection, and the unstoppable force meeting the immovable object that is Grace's emotional unavailability provides the novel some of its sharpest moments. When the walls tumble down, the connection between the two is clearly an unhealthy one, and the author pulls no punches, devastating Henry, Grace, and readers in equal measure. An emotionally engaging and draining debut.

Anyone who has felt the ache of first love will relate to Henry Page, a bookish high school senior unexpectedly swept off his feet. Henry, who has never had a girlfriend, isn’t immediately attracted to new student Grace Town, who enters the school with a conspicuous limp, “dressed head to toe in guys’ clothing” (“I’d seen junkies that looked in better shape than she did that morning,” Henry says). Yet after Grace and Henry are asked to co-edit the school newspaper, his interest in her grows, fueled by Grace’s on-again-off-again flirting. As romance blossoms, secrets about Grace’s past and current situation emerge, and Henry begins to think that Grace may be beyond his help. Eloquently conveying the complexity of love and grief, debut novelist Sutherland creates a story filled with intriguing and memorable characters. Henry’s quirky friends, dry-witted parents, and rebel-turned-neuroscientist sister (who offers sage advice on matters of the heart) add touches of brightness to this dark romance.

 

School Library Journal 

Henry Page always thought love would be simple, and then he meets transfer student Grace Town. Grace is a mystery, with her pronounced limp, unflattering boys’ clothes, and penchant for intense poetry. When she is recruited to be an editor of the school newspaper, which Henry is finally helming, life gets complicated very quickly. Intrigued by Grace’s intelligence and her bizarre behavior, the protagonist is soon way over his head in a relationship that is, by turns, disturbing, charming, and eerily romantic. He tries to unravel Grace’s story while surrounded by his family and friends, who are quirky in ways that are mostly delightful and occasionally annoying. There are Henry’s oddball parents, his brilliant older sister (formerly an infamous juvenile delinquent), and his best friends Lola and Murray. A heartsick Australian Romeo whose antics provide some comic relief, Murray never becomes more than a sight gag; Lola, however, infuses the book with knowing dialogue and a fair amount of heart. The ups and downs of Henry and Grace’s relationship will give students a genuine portrait of what it is like to be drawn to someone who may not be good for you but who will teach you something about yourself and others…this book delves far deeper than the typical high school romance, and its savvy wordplay and Henry’s self-deprecating charm will win over fans of Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower and John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars.

Våra kemiska hjärtan av Krystal Sutherland

Henry Pages föräldrar har formats hans bild på kärleken. Föräldrarna som träffades som små, verkar vara varandras första kärlek och fortfarande är kära. Så tänker Henry att det ska bli för honom också. Han har aldrig varit kär.
De senaste åren har Henry kämpat för att få bli redaktör på skoltidningen. Nu är det dags. Men han ska dela platsen med skolans nya tjej Grace Town. Hon som går omkring i förstora killkläder, ibland borstar håret men absolut inte alltid. Grace som dessutom vägrar skruvar.
På omvägar och kringelikrokigt uppstår vänskap. Henry funderar om han inte känner mer. Det är något med Grace något mystiskt och vackert. På hennes Facebook-sida finns en helt annan bild av Grace. Vad har hänt med henne? Vad är det för hemlighet hon bär på? Denna mystik gör Henrys nyfikenhet och fascination allt starkare.
Våra kemiska hjärtan fängslar mig totalt. Önskar nästan att jag inte hade läst - så jag skulle ha läsningen kvar. Gillar både Henry och Grace massor. Gillar personerna runt omkring vänner och familj. Henrys storasyster inte minst.  All tankar om kärlek som finns i boken snurrar runt i mitt huvud.  Gillar så mycket tanken att kärlek är lika mycket oavsett dess längd. Det är inte längden som gör kärleken stor utan kärleken och människor.
Älskar alla fina Harry Potter referenser <3
På bokens baksida står det John Green möter Rainbow Rowell och jag kan inte annat än att hålla med. Bortsett från den där detaljen att jag alltid blir lite besviken när jag läser John Green. Krystal Sutherland gör mig inte besviken en endaste gång!  Hennes pappersvärldar vill jag tillbaka till igen, igen och igen!
