How It Ends by Catherine Lo
Expected publication: June 7th 2016
There are two sides to every story.
It’s friends-at-first-sight for Jessie and Annie, proving the old adage that opposites attract. Shy, anxious Jessie would give anything to have Annie’s beauty and confidence. And Annie thinks Jessie has the perfect life, with her close-knit family and killer grades. They’re BFFs…until suddenly they’re not.
Told through alternating points of view, How It Ends is a wildly fast but deeply moving read about a friendship in crisis. Set against a tumultuous sophomore year of bullying, boys and backstabbing, the novel shows what can happen when friends choose assumptions and fear over each other.
Wow. This book was crazy.
I’m so blown away by how complex this story and it’s characters were. I relate to Jessie in a lot of ways that I wasn’t expecting. And even though Annie was frustrating to be at times, I could relate to her as well.
How It Ends tackles a lot of meaningful subjects and Catherine Lo wrote this book so perfectly. I’m really at a loss for words because I’m still trying grasp how incredible this book is.
