About This Item: 
"Adelaide is a beautifully-written, deeply-felt exploration of what it means to love and be loved... A remarkable debut."-- Jill Santopolo, New York Times bestselling author of The Light We LostA modern, yet timeless love story from a fresh new voice in fiction. Adelaide Williams is a 20-something American, living in dreamy London. With wonderful friends and fierce ambitions, Adelaide has little interest in finding "The One" right now, but when she meets Rory Hughes on a dating app--a charming Englishman who's been placed there by fate, she swears--that all changes. All of a sudden, Adelaide finds herself completely in love. Does he respond to texts? Honor his commitments? Make advanced plans? Sometimes, rarely, and no, not at all. But Adelaide is convinced that if she just tries and fights and loves a little harder, he'll fall for her as deeply as she's fallen for him. (He has to... right?) Because it's clear to Adelaide that their fate was written in the stars. Why else would they have attended that same play last fall, or that Yankees game in 2016? Their paths never crossing until just the right moment. Their relationship is made all the more complicated when Rory is thrust into a season of unexpected mourning, and soon Adelaide--the ever-supportive Adelaide--begins to fall apart herself, while striving to hold him together. A millennial love story, Genevieve Wheeler's Adelaide explores the complexities of grief, the power of friendship, and the nuance of mental health. With unflinching honesty, and zany warmth, this raw, vulnerable novel captures the timeless nature of what it's like to be young and in love--with your friends, with your city, and with a person who cannot, will not, love you back.
