Hold Back the Stars
Carys and Max have ninety minutes of air left. None of this was supposed to happen. But, maybe this doesn't need to be the end...Adrift in space with nothing to cling to but each other, Carys and Max can't help but look back at the world they have left behind - a place where they never really belonged, and that they might now never return to. In a world where love is banned, what happens when you find it?
