Review

A gripping story, an immersive world; Because You’ll Never Meet Me is a one of a kind story, following the unlikely friendship between two boys, Oliver and Moritz. They are polar opposites who build up a striking bond through the use of letters, however, they can never meet in person; if they did, one of them would most certainly die. Oliver is a teenager with a lively imagination and a bizarre disability; he’s adventurous, courageous, lives in the woods with his mother. Moritz has a disciplined mind, and no eyes. Cautious and careful, he lives in a flat with his father. Together, the boys become an inseparable force, learning from each other’s experiences and supporting each other when things seem bleak. But when a secret about their disturbing past is lifted, will things ever be the same again? The key selling point for me is that the story is told through the letters the two boys send each other, giving the book more depth than any other I’ve ever read.
