Tell Me Three Things
    2017-November-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Written by Julie Buxbaum, this is a contemporary* young adult novel about grieving, growing up, and learning how to have confidence* in yourself.

Everything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new intimidating prep school* in Los Angeles. 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 stepmother and her pretentious teenage son, and to start at a new school where she knows no one.

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?

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?

Readers will find themselves growing with Jessie as she tries to deal with the passing of her mother and become comfortable in her own skin miles away from everything she thought of as home. Buxbaum’s debut is hard to put down because of its smooth and captivating text. The addition of virtual conversations through email and chatting adds an exciting plot twist.

The book is available at online bookstores like jd.com.
