Being widely hailed as The Time Traveler's Wife meets Friday Night Lights, Emily Henry's debut novel The Love That Split the World does not disappoint. Our protaganist, Natalie, is Native American by birth but adopted into a white family; and the balance of celebrating both her biological and adopted heritage is only a small part of the problems she's facing. The world flickers and shows her things that aren't there, including attractive, football-playing Beau Wilkes who disappears as quickly as he returns.
