Summary
Love, loss, friendship, and the betrayals of the past all collide in this first women's fiction novel from New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren ( Autoboyography, Dating You / Hating You ).

The story of the heart can never be unwritten.

Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: work hard as a new pediatrics resident, plan her wedding to an older, financially secure man, keep her head down and heart tucked away.

But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos--the first and only love of her life--the careful bubble she's constructed begins to dissolve. Once upon a time, Elliot was Macy's entire world--growing from her gangly bookish friend into the man who coaxed her heart open again after the loss of her mother...only to break it on the very night he declared his love for her.

Told in alternating timelines between Then and Now, teenage Elliot and Macy grow from friends to much more--spending weekends and lazy summers together in a house outside of San Francisco devouring books, sharing favorite words, and talking through their growing pains and triumphs. As adults, they have become strangers to one another until their chance reunion. Although their memories are obscured by the agony of what happened that night so many years ago, Elliot will come to understand the truth behind Macy's decade-long silence, and will have to overcome the past and himself to revive her faith in the possibility of an all-consuming love.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Young Macy Sorensen's life changes forever, first when her mom dies of cancer, and then again, a few years later, when she meets Elliot Petropoulos. Macy and Elliot find comfort in each other, hiding away reading in a closet of books, sharing their favorite words, growing up, and eventually falling deeply in love. But a chain of events unfolds on New Year's Eve of their senior year that changes everything. Both try to move on and forget. Macy throws herself into an intense medical residency program and gets engaged, while Elliot attempts a serious relationship and buries himself in writing a book. A chance encounter 11 years later brings them back together, and their lives seem to begin again in the instant they see each other. In their latest collaboration as Christina Lauren, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings craft a dynamic love story, alternating swiftly between Macy's present and her past. Love and Other Words brings to life a romance that stands the test of hardship and time and will restore anyone's faith in love.--Norstedt, Melissa Copyright 2018 Booklist"
