(I've admitted my uselessness at Goodreads in other places and this passed me by for some reason - usually my brain only comprehends criticism, so that's probably why I didn't see this:) ) YES, is the answer to the question - and the book is firmly adult - there's not a teenager in sight! Very different from WEIGHTLESS but I really enjoyed writing it...I'll reveal more when I'm permitted! Thank you again for your kind words!!!(less)

Weightless by Sarah Bannan
"This is one of those books which is classified as "adult" but I think just as easily could have been called "YA". So, I for one am happy it was in the adult section, bc otherwise I probably would not have read it, and I would have missed out. This..." Read more of this review »

"I wasn’t expecting such a powerful and poignant story from a novel that started like an advertisement for ‘the all-American-teenage-experience’. This novel is dark, beautifully written, and leaves the reader longing to enter the world of Adamsvill..." Read more of this review »

Weightless by Sarah Bannan
"WOW... what an excellent novel. Powerful stuff.

At first I was kind of annoyed with the book, but after a few chapters I was no longer annoyed, I was hooked. I think this might be the first book I've read that's written in first person plural. Whi..." Read more of this review »

Beautiful and engrossing and compassionate and just wonderful. Sarah Crossan is a totally fantastic writer and this book may be her best yet. I loved it - a verse novel that tracks the relationship of conjoined twins. It's heartbreaking and distilled ...more

“We were young and hopeful and beautiful and fearless, for just a few seconds, and it made us smile, until we heard the murmuring behind us, and we moved to the side of the gym and took our phones and our mirrors and our lip glosses out of our purses, and we checked to make sure everything was in place.”
Sarah Bannan, Weightless

“We grew up too fast, that’s what they told us. We moved too quickly. Had too much sex, took too many drugs, drank too much. They didn’t have a clue, we said, but we looked around, and wondered if what they said was true. We knew everything about everyone, and it was hard to outrun our childhoods, hard to do enough stuff to make people forget about the time you peed your pants in second grade, the time you cried when your mother forgot to pack your lunch, the time you puked at the end of PE. We did what we could. We tried to make people forget.”
Sarah Bannan, Weightless
