We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a true story by Josh Sundquist
Published December 23rd 2014
“A bright, poignant, and deeply funny autobiographical account of coming of age as an amputee cancer survivor, from Josh Sundquist: Paralympic ski racer, YouTube star, and motivational speaker.
Josh Sundquist only ever had one girlfriend.
For twenty-three hours.
In eighth grade.
Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down the girls he had tried to date and asked them straight up: What went wrong?
The results of Josh’s semiscientific, wholly hilarious investigation are captured here. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), to a misguided “grand gesture” at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love–or at least a girlfriend–in all the wrong places.”
I hardly ever read non-fiction. Extremely rarely do I read non-fiction. But everything about this book sounded great so I had to pick it up.
Once I bought this book, it sat on my shelf for a couple months. I had all but forgotten about it. But when I stumbled across Josh’s YouTube channel and thought he was really funny, I remembered that I had his book sitting on my shelf. I picked it up a week or two later and I’m so glad that I did.
I really enjoyed We Should Hang Out Sometime. I was really surprised by how much I liked it. It’s so well written and just a lot of fun. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much was I could relate to Josh in a lot of ways. I was also homeschooled and Josh’s observations of homeschooling had me rolling with laughter.
All though out the book, I would be laughing at various situations.
Overall, I really liked this book. It’s definitely one of my new favorites and one of the best books I’ve read in 2015.
