Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'The new One Day' Stylist Magazine 'A high-stakes, high-concept love story from a bold new talent.' Matt Haig Carys and Max have ninety minutes of air left. None of this was supposed to happen. Adrift in space with nothing to hold on to but each other, Carys and Max can't help but look back at the world they left behind. A world whose rules they couldn't submit to, a place where they never really belonged; a home they're determined to get back to because they've come too far to lose each other now. Hold Back the Stars is a love story like no other. PRAISE FOR HOLD BACK THE STARS 'Original, surprising and romantic.' Woman & Home 'Full of wonder and heart.' Emma Jane Unsworth 'The most unique love story I've read in years.' Rowan Coleman 'Think Gravity meets The Versions of Us .' Red
