I have so much love for Mackler's Infinite in Between. Despite its large scope (5 teens, 5 perspectives, all 4 years of high school), Infinite manages to feel strikingly quiet. Like in life, all the tiny moments add up, and in the end, what you feel is the ultimate reward: a greater appreciation for those tiny "in-between" moments that really, unexpectedly, mark the ways we grow as individuals. In the way the film Boyhood does, Infinite in Between pulls off something remarkable: it manages to be both epic and intimate. Never once does it feel grandiose or unwieldy. And it sure sparkles on every page.

The Breakfast Club meets Boyhood in this striking young adult novel from Printz Honor author Carolyn Mackler, which chronicles the lives of five teenagers through the thrills, heartbreaks, and joys of their four years in high school.

Zoe, Jake, Mia, Gregor, and Whitney meet at freshman orientation. At the end of that first day, they make a promise to reunite after graduation. But so much can happen in those in-between years. . . .

Zoe fears she will always be in her famous mother's shadow. Jake struggles to find the right connections in friendship and in love. Mia keeps trying on new identities, looking for one that actually fits. Gregor thought he wanted to be more than just a band geek. And Whitney seems to have it all, until it's all falling apart around her.

Carolyn Mackler skillfully brings the stories of these five disparate teens together to create a distinct and cohesive whole a novel about how we can all affect one another's lives in the most unexpected and amazing ways. Infinite in Between received four starred reviews, was listed on several best books of the year lists, and is perfect for fans of books by Jandy Nelson, Sara Zarr, and E. Lockhart.
