I was somehow lucky enough to win an advance copy of Landline. Thank you to Goodreads and the publisher - this may be the best book I've read all year.

Georgie's marriage is in crisis. Her dream is coming true - the show she and her best friend have been working on for years finally has a chance at being picked up, but they need to write four episodes asap. The problem? It's almost Christmas, and she and her family are all set to go visit her husband's mom in Nebraska. When Georgie tells Neal that she can't come, she knows he'll be upset. She's choosing work -- and her best friend Seth -- over him... again. She doesn't expect that he'll pack up the kids and go to Nebraska without her. She doesn't expect that he won't even pick up his cell phone when she calls. One night after he's left, she digs through the closet of her childhood bedroom to find her old rotary phone. She calls from her mother's landline to Neal's parents' landline and finally reaches Neal... in 1998.

I don't want to say too much, since this book won't even be released for another month and a half, but Rainbow Rowell did not let me down. Landline was everything I hoped for and more, and I had a really hard time putting it down. My thoughts on it are mostly just a mess and I don't think I can do it justice in a review.
