If Tomorrow Doesn’t Come

If Tomorrow Doesn’t Come by Jen St. Jude

Perfect for fans of Nina Lacour and Tess Sharpe, If Tomorrow Doesn’t Come combines speculative fiction elements with the raw emotion, beautiful prose, and careful mental health representation characteristic of Lacour’s and Sharpe’s young adult novels. Avery has always felt a heaviness or a darkness attached to her person, clinging to her in the same way her Aunt Devin’s suicide, committed on the day Avery was born, clings to her; that is, until she realizes she’s not feeling much of anything anymore. On the day Avery plans to take her own life, just as her aunt did, the world learns that an asteroid destined to wipe out the entire population is hurtling toward Earth, and nobody can stop it. With just nine days left until it strikes, Avery selects a new death date, the same one the entire world’s just been given, and returns from her first year of college to her childhood home with her family and her best friend whom she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember. This deeply emotional novel will remind you that you are worth advocating for, no matter how bleak your present or your future may feel, and it will stay with you long after you’ve finished its final pages.
