BOOK REVIEW: TELL ME THREE THINGS

Synopsis: Everything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new ultra-intimidating prep school in Los Angeles. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. Is it an elaborate hoax? Or can she rely on SN for some much-needed help? It’s been barely two years since her mother’s death, and because her father eloped with a woman he met online, Jessie has been forced to move across the country to live with her stepmonster and her pretentious teenage son. In a leap of faith—or an act of complete desperation—Jessie begins to rely on SN, and SN quickly becomes her lifeline and closest ally. Jessie can’t help wanting to meet SN in person. But are some mysteries better left unsolved?

Review: As soon as I heard Meg talk about this book, I immediately put it on hold at the library. And boy howdy am I glad I did! This book was so so so SO good people!!! It had me constantly second guessing who I thought SN was, and I loved that! I really felt connected to Jessie. Although I have never lost a parent, I understood how she felt in certain situations. I feel like I would have reacted similarly to her. I think I would rank this book right below Me Before You, in terms of books I have read so far this year.

Rating: 5/5

  1. Might have to give this book a try.
    I really DID NOT enjoy Me Before You as a movie. Is it better as a book?
