The Space Between: Chaos. Questions. Magic. Welcome to your twenties.
About this deal
Nowadays? It depends. It seems strange that, in the day of gay marriage and lesbians now depicted in television, novels, history notes, on the internet, and celebrity personalities that being lesbian in high school would be so completely lonely, isolated, and unidentifiable?

Harper Isabelle has always been popular thanks to her big sister Bronte. Her life’s always been perfectly planned. That is until she meets Sarah Jamieson a weird loner with dark make-up who loves art. Sarah is used to being the outcast, she doesn’t need any friends. Despite their paths being set, both girls start to find something entirely new within each other. stars | From the creators of the hit Australian podcast ‘Shameless’, came this book where the hosts reflect on their experience as young women in their twenties, so far.I felt that the podcast is goodg, however for the most part was somewhat not relatable and self indulgent. So I was disappointed. I felt like it should have been for a younger age group. I will admit I have not listened to a single episode of Shameless but this book was outstanding. I resonated with every chapter and really really enjoyed their writing. I went in expecting a ‘how to guide to your twenties’ and I think that’s why I avoided reading it for so long - I don’t want a guide I’ll work it out myself, thanks. The Space Between defied my expectations, Zara and Michelle weren’t trying to encapsulate a universal experience. Please, please, please do yourself a favour and buy this book, you’re not only helping out these wonderful humans but you’re helping out YOURSELF by reading it. I feel like a new person. I am obsessed.

I did not have high expectations prior to reading this book and nor were they met. If you rated this anything above a 3 star - have you ever read a good book in your life? Maybe this is a dipshit compliment but I like the fact that Cool Girl was the brunette and the goth-dressing Uncool Girl had blonde hair, because I feel like so many people assume all popular girls are blonde and nobody who's blonde could ever possibly be an outcast. As a blonde, thin middle school outcast: kids are just weird and sometimes they just do what they do for no reason. Also I really, really like the way some of the messier loose ends got tied up in this one while still leaving enough ragged bits to be realistic. Sarah usually hates girls like Harper; their instant popularity and the fact that they seem to get everything they want in life. She has a pretty big chip on her shoulder, dealing with the fact that her twin brother is also instantly popular and that genetically he "got all the good, leaving her with shit." But the more time she is thrown together with Harper the more she realizes that she isn't like all the other rude and obnoxious kids she has grown up around.I’ve loved riding the wave of this novel, through the poignant and honest stories of Michelle & Zara. It is clear that they have placed parts of their hearts & souls into this book, and for that, I am grateful - as I imagine putting this much of yourself out into the world is not easy. The Space Between by Michelle L. Teichman is a young adult coming of age story. It follows the lives of two 9th grade girls that have different experiences entering high school. The journey is sweet, goofy and sometimes agonizing as they both venture into uncharted territory.
