NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • Sam and Sadie—two college friends, often in love, but never lovers—become creative partners in a dazzling and intricately imagined world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality. It is a love story, but not one you have read before.

"Delightful and absorbing." —The New York Times • "Utterly brilliant." —John Green

One of the Best Books of the Year: The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, TIME, GoodReads, Oprah Daily

From the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: On a bitter-cold day, in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom.

These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities won’t protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts.

Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.


  • Interesting read for a person who doesn’t game

    By ftv185
    Interesting deep dive into the world of gaming. Really enjoyed the development of the characters, their relationships and how they changed over time
  • Simply Amazing and …

    By J dilla da filla
    And perhaps “the” love story for the Oregon Trail generation!
  • I love this story

    By capsyoungguns
    This book is moving and unexpected. The characters—Sam, Sadie, and Marx—are compelling. Now that I’ve finished I want to read it again. It’s that good.
  • Didn’t like it

    By jimenabl
    Not my favorite book
  • The ending?

    By hannquee
    Anticlimactic. The relationship between Sadie and Sam was strange and hard to grasp. It felt like a very slow read.
  • Stunning. (Trigger warning)

    By writinginLA
    Stunning storytelling. Fell hard for the characters who are exquisitely drawn. Was completely thrown by the devastating turn and had to put it down for weeks…perhaps there was a trigger warning I hadn’t seen. Regardless, the book is beautiful, and top of my list of recommendations.
  • Did Compute

    By Gogetlo
    Enjoyed the characters and the story. Kept me going. Got a bit bogged down in places…
  • Best book I’ve read in a long time

    By C.TopherF
    Captivating from start to finish!
  • Not worth reading!!!

    By gkathryn
    This story had huge potential. Some of the feelings Sam had about Sadie were very well described but unfortunately didn’t really go anywhere. The plot took an odd turn halfway through (became difficult to follow and hard to enjoy). The story went on way longer than it had to. Really a disappointing read!
  • An Exploration of Relationships

    By GnatChat
    In this absorbing story of young friends, readers will recognize variations of classic relationship experiences. A thoughtful, brave, and very relatable exploration of close friendship, T,T, and T shows, rather than tells, some of the limits of close friendship, most of which are self-imposed. We have many lessons to learn when we are young, and part of that is understanding how we get so many things wrong within the infinite space of an intimate relationship. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just restart, play the game over again, and this time correct our mistakes? We can’t, and we will never know how those very mistakes were the origin of, or responsible for, our many successes.
