"God-Shaped Hole will change you as a reader, writer and human. It is rare books like this one that remind me why I fell in love with the written word."--Colleen Hoover

The Los Angeles personal ads are always a peculiar place, but Beatrice Jordan can't help her curiosity when she reads, "If your intentions are pure, I am seeking a friend for the end of the world." This ad leads her to the unpredictable Jacob Grace and an instant alliance.
Both of their worlds shift that day, and what follows is a churning romance full of insecurity, creativity, and determination. Beatrice and Jacob must face their demons and defy their fates to connect with one another and transcend the claustrophobic loneliness of Los Angeles.
This 15th Anniversary reissue of Tiffanie DeBartolo's charming love story introduces dreamers to a quintessentially real and raw vision of spirit and inspires everyone to live and love as vividly as possible--the perfect summer read for fans of One Day in December by Josie Silver, In Five Years by Rebecca Serle, and The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin.
