If I See You Again Tomorrow (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
A New York Times bestseller!
From the author of The Sky Blues and Blaine for the Win comes a speculative young adult romance about a teen stuck in a time loop that’s endlessly monotonous until he meets the boy of his dreams.
For some reason, Clark has woken up and relived the same monotonous Monday 309 times. Until Day 310 turns out to be…different. Suddenly, his usual torturous math class is interrupted by an anomaly—a boy he’s never seen before in all his previous Mondays.
When shy, reserved Clark decides to throw caution to the wind and join effusive and effervescent Beau on a series of “errands” across the Windy City, he never imagines that anything will really change, because nothing has in such a long time. And he definitely doesn’t expect to fall this hard or this fast for someone in just one day.
There’s just one problem: how do you build a future with someone if you can never get to tomorrow?

* "Couples a vivacious queer romance with an emotionally intelligent time loop tale, meshing Groundhog Day with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off....Their day-after-day cat-and-mouse game, which never feels dull despite repeating events, eloquently explores themes of loneliness, love and forgiveness, and the quiet power of kindness, all while maintaining ticking-clock suspense."
— Publisher's Weekly, starred review
* "The story is structured around a series of deviations and mysteries; as each mystery is solved, a new one springs up, spurring the plot onward and making the novel compulsively readable. In addition to excellent structure and pacing, Couch also provides a compelling, endearing narrator in Clark."
— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
* "Couch has done an excellent job of breathing new life into an old trope, crafting a clever plot with complex, likable characters. Along the way, he keeps readers on their toes.... If Couch occasionally throws his readers for a loop, they’ll be glad he does."
— Booklist, starred review
"Fresh, engaging, funny, and heartwarming....The story is expertly paced and includes a satisfying mix of romance, sleuthing, sci-fi, humor, and coming-of-age themes. The book also reads like a love song to Chicago, similar to Rachel Lynn Solomon’s devotion to Seattle in Today Tonight Tomorrow....Highly recommended."
— School Library Journal
"The romance itself is strange and satisfying, consisting of both classic meet-cute instant attraction between Clark and Beau and slow-burn character development as Clark hunts for Beau and seeks to learn more about him....An engaging, sweet, and emotional journey."
— Kirkus Reviews
“If I See You Again Tomorrow is easily Robbie Couch’s best, most compelling offering yet. He’s already proven himself an indelible master of the queer YA romantic comedy and builds on that skill with clever twists, excellent pacing and edge-of-your-seat suspense. I know people say they could not put this book down, but I truly could not put this book down. It almost made me want to get whisked away into a time loop of my own for a spell—but overall, it simply made me feel less alone.”
— David Oliver, entertainment reporter, USA Today
"What's better than a love story set over the course of a single day? Reliving that day over and over. Or is it? Sometimes dreamy, sometimes nightmarish, If I See You Again Tomorrow is a brilliant time-loop romance I never wanted to end. You'll love following Robbie Couch's lonely hero as he seeks someone to spend infinity with, even when it plays with your heart time and time (and time and time) again."
— Adam Silvera, #1 New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at the End
