Description

"Phil Stamper's The Gravity of Us is the first love, first launch, astronaut story I didn't know I needed. I'm so starry-eyed for this wise, romantic gem of a book." --Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA

"A big-hearted, witty, and intensely relatable debut about reaching for your dreams without losing what grounds you." --Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of ONE OF US IS LYING and TWO CAN KEEP A SECRET

"A grounded romance that shapes into its own lovely constellation." --Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling co-author of WHAT IF IT'S US

"The Gravity of Us speaks poignantly of the things that will attend every human endeavor: family, struggle to know one's self, and the kind of love that makes you feel like you're hurtling to the stars." --Jeff Zentner, Morris Award winning author of THE SERPENT KING

"Phil Stamper's confident debut is an excellent exploration of modern social media, first love, and how to use your voice to do good, centered around the preparations for the first crewed mission to Mars. Calvin and Leon are fierce and sweet, and I never wanted their story to end. To put it bluntly, The Gravity of Us is out of this world." --Shaun David Hutchinson, author of WE ARE THE ANTS, THE PAST, and OTHER THINGS THAT SHOULD STAY BURIED

"At once a tender love story and an honest exploration of anxiety, ambition, and family dynamics, Phil Stamper's The Gravity of Us pulls you in and takes you on a beautiful, heartfelt journey. Never has the NASA space program seemed so romantic." --Caleb Roehrig, author of LAST SEEN LEAVING and WHITE RABBIT

"A debut to remember, Stamper's The Gravity Of Us draws you in for a journey of family, friendships, and ambition while exploring the power of social media and our own voices. Equal parts thoughtful and heartfelt, this book never misses a beat. Cal and Leon have my heart drifting in orbit." --Julian Winters, author of RUNNING WITH LIONS

"A sweet-spirited romance that will capture readers' hearts and imaginations." --Booklist, starred review

"Phil Stamper's The Gravity of Us is so interesting and well crafted that it's hard to believe it's his first novel. . . . Readers will root for Cal and Leon, their budding romance, their astronaut families and, of course, the prospect of life among the stars." --BookPage, starred review

"Stamper crafts a sweet fish-out-of-water tale that also shrewdly explores the intersection between social class and modern media culture...A charming and satisfying first novel." --Kirkus Reviews

"Given the important issues raised-media responsibility, NASA and politics, friendship and romance, mental health-this has something for a lot of different teen readers." --School Library Journal

"A openhearted novel that shows a realistic, imperfect queer relationship and a young man growing to know and to be true to himself even when everything is shifting around him." --Publishers Weekly
