Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • Sam and Sadie—two college friends, often in love, but never lovers—become creative partners in a dazzling and intricately imagined world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality. It is a love story, but not one you have read before.

"Delightful and absorbing." —The New York Times • "Utterly brilliant." —John Green

One of the Best Books of the Year: The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, TIME, GoodReads, Oprah Daily

From the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: On a bitter-cold day, in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom.

These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities won’t protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts.

Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.

Thumbs Up“This books deserves all of its praise. I originally added this book to my TBR because it popped up as a recommended read for enneagram fives (hi that’s me 👋🏼), and it didn’t disappoint. Fueled with emotional storytelling, I was deeply moved by the characters’ journeys. Though poignant at times, this is certainly a book about love and its many uniquely beautiful forms.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“This was a strange read for me. It got really confusing with all the technical gaming jargon then the confusing timeline. I really liked the characters at first but then they kinda just annoyed me. The ending was so unsatisfying. But I suppose it was more real than the other fantasy books I’ve been reading at the moment. The part with Marx in the NPC chapter got me though 😢.”

Loudly Crying Face“Bits and pieces of this book have stayed with me and come to mind often, especially one chapter (IYKYK). I’m just in love with this book so much. It’s a book filled with fantastic imagery and tender emotions which immersed me into its world. I wish I could read this for the first time again and again to experience the beauty.”
Beautifully writtenComing of age
Loudly Crying Face“I only really disliked how slow it was. I thought Sadie and Sam were extremely believable and I loved how flawed they were. I also had issues with their miscommunication but it wouldn’t have seemed as realistic if they did not have completely different styles in how they communicate and cope. It explored grief, disability, love, friendship, and work beautifully. I also really appreciated that Sam and Sadie never ended up together but the ending was very open-ended. Very well written”

Loudly Crying Face“Some people have reservations about this book because of the morally grey characters, but I think that’s what makes the story believable. No one can make perfect decisions all the time and everyone struggles dealing with life through their own perception. Beautiful book, and heartbreaking. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about Marx and what a beautiful soul he was…. Truly an influential being. Sadie and Sam will always have love for one another and I would hope they continue making games.”
