If you, like Zoella, were a big fan of Jennifer Niven's debut novel All The Bright Places, then you're definitely not alone. It seemed like the whole of the YA lit world fell in love with Violet and Finch's story, and the simple, beautiful messages that it teaches you about life.

Ever since we hit the last page we've been dying to read more of Jennifer's books, but the wait is over guys and gals, as loads of deets about her upcoming second read, Holding Up The Universe, have been finally revealed this week.

Holding Up the Universe is the story of Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed 'America's Fattest Teen'. Everyone thinks they know Libby, but no one's taken the time to look past her weight to get to see who she really is. 

Since her mum's death, she's been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now Libby is ready for high school, for new friends, for love and for every possibility life has to offer. 

It is also the story of the cool and charming Jack Masselin. No one knows that Jack has a secret: he can't recognise faces, even his own family are strangers to him. When Libby and Jack get tangled up in a cruel high school game which lands them in group counselling, they are both angry, and then surprised, because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. 

Sounds pretty great, right? Holding Up The Universe will be published by Penguin in paperback original on 6th October so you've got a little while to wait, but we have a feeling that it will totally be worth it.
