Little Universes by Heather Demetrios

Publication Date: April 7th, 2020

Goodreads Summary
One wave: that’s all it takes for the rest of Mae and Hannah Winters’ lives to change.

When a tsunami strikes the island where their parents are vacationing, it soon becomes clear that their mom and dad are never coming home. Forced to move to Boston from sunny California for the rest of their senior year, each girl struggles with secrets their parents’ death has brought to light, and with their uncertainty about the future. Instead of bringing them closer, it feels like the wave has torn the sisters apart.

Hannah is a secret poet who wants to be seen, but only knows how to hide. The pain pills she stole from her dead father hurl her onto the shores of an addiction she can’t shake and a dealer who turns her heart upside down. When it’s clear Hannah’s drowning, Mae, a budding astronaut suddenly launched into an existential crisis—and unexpected love—must choose between herself and the only family she has left.

Little Universes is a book about the powerful bond between sisters, the kinds of love that never die, and the journey we all must make through the baffling cruelty and unexpected beauty of human life in an incomprehensible universe.


Everyone should know by now that Heather Demetrios is one of my favourite authors of all time and I’ll Meet You There remains to be my favourite book. What resonates with me so much about her books is how real the characters feel. These are people I can relate to on a day to day basis in one way or another. I am so excited for Little Universes and I can’t wait to read what will surely be a moving story about the bonds between these sisters.
