Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Bo attends a private boarding school on an island off the Massachusetts coast. It's a prestigious school for students learning how to hone their unique powers. All the students there have special skills—Bo can travel through time; his girlfriend, Sofia, can make herself invisible; Gwen can produce fire from her hands; and Ryan can move things telekinetically. As the story opens, Bo is concerned. He's managed to jump Sofia back to 1692 and can't seem to get her back; he can see the thread that connects her, but can't grab hold. Meanwhile, Bo's supervisor, the Doctor, attempts to convince Bo that Sofia has committed suicide and that Bo needs to come to terms with this. Occasional chapters in his sister's voice help readers sort out the ramblings of a confused narrator and realize that Bo is at an inpatient facility for the mentally ill and is wrestling with fugue states that go on for days at a time. As a side note, the author's reputation for superlative speculative fiction, such as Across the Universe, casts a shadow of lingering doubt that leaves readers willing to suspend disbelief to the very end, yearning for Bo to actually be able to travel through time. VERDICT A compelling peek into the darkest corners of mental illness; hand this to those who enjoyed Nic Sheff's Schizo.—Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL

Review

"A story that’s both heartbreaking and hopeful." Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The voices of both narrators are impossible to ignore as the lines between flawed visions and reality blur in a powerful revelation of the delusional and paranoid mind. Revis’s account of grief, loss, first love, and anguish, presented through a lens of mental illness, is a must-read." VOYA, starred review

"A gripping exploration of a young man’s struggle with delusions and grief." Booklist

"A page-turning psychological thriller." —Kirkus Reviews

"A compelling peek into the darkest corners of mental illness." —School Library Journal

"YA’s answer to Shutter Island." —The Horn Book

"A painfully brilliant and transporting read. This novel has the rare superpower to change and save lives." —Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling author of More Happy Than Not

"A World Without You tackles grief, mental illness, and family dynamics with both grace and generosity. I fell in love with Bo’s story of perseverance in the face of seemingly endless struggle and was left brimming with hope. Readers will emerge from this book a little stronger than when they entered.” —Emily Henry, author of The Love That Split the World 

“Beth Revis delivers us an astonishing shape-shifter of a tale that dazzles and startles at every tense turn. Themes of love, secrets, and heartbreak are woven into a taut and bewitching narrative that will pull you in and not let you go. Don't forget to breathe.” —Adele Griffin, author of The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone
 
A World Without You is a beautiful, devastating, mind-bending adventure.” —Suzanne Young, New York Times bestselling author of The Program series
