No One is Here Except All of Us by Ramona Ausubel

I received a Trade Paperback from Riverhead Books a couple of days ago. I liked the cover, read the description, and have become very keen to read No One is Here Except All of Us. If I had spotted the novel in 2012 I would have included it in the 2012 Debut Author Challenge. The novel was published in Hardcover in February 2012. Sadly I do not find every debut that would fit in the Challenge each year (despite trying).

In good news, however, Ramona Ausubel will be featured in an upcoming Interview and an upcoming Guest Blog.

No One is Here Except All of Us
Riverhead Trade, February 5, 2013
Trade Paperback and eBook, 416 pages

In 1939, the residents of a tiny Romanian village are counting upon their isolation to protect them from the catastrophe sweeping Europe. When a mysterious stranger is washed up on the riverbank and the illusion of peace is shattered, the villagers are forced to acknowledge the precariousness of their situation. But even with danger imminent in every direction, the territory of imagination is limitless.

At the suggestion of an eleven-year-old-girl and the stranger, the villagers decide, through sheer will, to reinvent the world. Destiny is unwritten. Time and history are forgotten. And for years, there is boundless hope. But as the young girl comes of age, as the real world continues to unfold alongside the imagined one, she will learn the bigness of being alive as an individual, as a member of a tribe, and as a participant in history, and discover the power in shaping one’s own truths.
