Book Review: Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 5, 2016
Publisher: Delacorte Press

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?

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum was a super cute story. It dealt with some hard issues while still keeping things light. Jessica was completely oblivious to the obvious quite a bit, but there were so many other things I truly enjoyed about this story. My favorite parts being when Jessica and Somebody Nobody took turns telling each other three things...hence the title. These were great moments and some of the best parts in the book.

Julie Buxbaum is the New York Times best selling author of Tell Me Three Things, her young adult debut, What to Say Next and the forthcoming Hope and other Punchlines (out May 7, 2019.) She’s also the author of two critically acclaimed novels for adults: The Opposite of Love and After You. Her work has been translated into twenty-five languages. Julie’s writing has appeared in various publications, including The New York Times. She is a former lawyer and graduate of Harvard Law School and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children, and more books than is reasonable.
