Stephen Shulevitz remembers the end of the world. Two o’clock in the morning on a Saturday night, in Riverside, Nova Scotia when he realises he has fallen in love – with exactly the wrong person.

There are no volcanic eruptions. No floods or fires. Just Stephen, watching TV with his best friend, realising that life, as he knows it, will never be the same.

The smart move would be to run away – from Riverside, his overbearing hippie mother, his distant pot-smoking father – and especially his feelings. But then Stephen begins to wonder: what would happen if he had the courage to face the end of the world head on?

Keenly observed, achingly beautiful, shockingly real. I fell in love with every moment of reading it
