Everything’s great for Harper Isabelle, the most popular girl in grade nine. That is, until she meets Sarah Jamieson. Sarah is a reclusive artist, a loner who wears black makeup and doesn’t have any friends, but for some reason, Harper can’t stop thinking about her.



Sarah isn’t used to people looking her way, especially popular girls like Harper Isabelle. Scared, religious, and unsure of herself, when Sarah begins to realize that her feelings for Harper might go beyond friendship, she is afraid to take the plunge and tell Harper how she feels.



Emotions build between these young women until they both reach their breaking points, and they need to make a choice about coming to terms with who they really are, and what they can and cannot live without.

A heartbreaking, breathtaking novel of love, friendship and acceptance.



When I first came across novel, it was the cover and title that captured my attention. Cover is absolutely stunning and you can’t help but be curious about the story as well. Just look at it, the cover itself is as beautiful as the story was. Once I read summary for THE SPACE BETWEEN I had a feeling that it was going to end up a book that I was going to enjoy, but it was so much more. I have read GLBT novels before, but this was not what I had expected it to be, it turned out to be so much better than I expected it to be. It wasn’t long before I was hooked into Harper and Sarah’s story, and I felt that by mid of the book I knew them like they were my friends, and I found myself rooting for both of them. I thought that the first couple chapters started bit slow, like they were dragging a bit, but it picked up fast after that and once that it did, I did not want to put the book down. It’s not like I wanted what was going to happen next, with Sarah and Harper but I needed to find out what happens, I was hooked.



Sarah and Harper’s relationship was real, it felt realistic to me, the type of relationship that two of them is one I can see happening in real life, with someone who is not sure of their sexuality. That was the case for both of them. From moment that Sarah and Harper met, you could see that there was some sort of bond between the two of them, even if the two of them didn’t realize it at first. It didn’t even seem to Harper that Sarah wasn’t popular and that she was picked on, it didn’t stop Harper from wanting to be around her. I felt bad for Sarah, fact the she was bullied just because she looked, acted differently. Despite my mixed feelings about Tyler, I felt bad for him for what Sarah and Harper did to him, especially Sarah, considering how close they were. Though what Tyler did, was horrible as well. What Sarah and Harper had, that was love, most of all way they acted around each other. I wanted for them to end up together, and when they did, I was happy that they family got their happily after.



Everything that happened in THE SPACE BETWEEN was realistic or at least it felt realistic. That’s what teens go through most of time, in high school. Bullying, acceptance, popularity and some of them just like Sarah and Harper, struggle with their sexuality which keeps them from being with the person that they love. All through book, I wanted to see if Sarah would finally come to her senses, because I knew that Harper is the one that she wants to be with. I couldn’t get enough of the story, the characters. I am grateful that I had received this copy, for review. This was a first novel that I read by MICHELLE L.TEICHMAN and it won’t be the last one, I want to see what other adventures she has come up with. A novel that deserves more than 5 stars.



An astonishing, unique love story that you won’t forget.
