Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
Published April 5th 2016
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?
This is one of the cutest contemporaries I’ve ever read. It was so much fun and had such a cute plot.
I really loved the concept of this book and Jessie was a wonderful main character. She was really well written and I thought she had some really nice character development.
The mystery of SN didn’t really drive me to finish the book as much as I thought it would have though and it took me a really long time to get through this book. But once I had enough time to finish Tell Me Three Things in one sitting, I did.
Even though this isn’t the most amazing contemporaries I’ve read, it sure is one of the cutest and I really enjoyed it.
