Sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.

KIT: I don’t know why I decide not to sit with Annie and Violet at lunch. It feels like no one here gets what I’m going through. How could they? I don’t even understand.

DAVID: In the 622 days I’ve attended Mapleview High, Kit Lowell is the first person to sit at my lunch table. I mean, I’ve never once sat with someone until now. “So your dad is dead,” I say to Kit, because this is a fact I’ve recently learned about her.

When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?
HELLO FRIENDS, my annual back-for-the-summer posting is beginning again. I FINALLY started reading Julie Buxbaum's Tell Me Three Things the other day and so far, it's super good and the book just generally has great reviews.

What to Say Next sounds just up my alley -- contemporary which basically promises a bunch of character development from the beginning of the blurb. Buxbaum has been compared to Rainbow Rowell before but the summary of this story can't help but remind me of When Eleanor Meets Park, a book that I adored.

Stay tuned for updates on What to Say Next because you better believe I am waiting for it to arrive!!

  6. Such a cute cover and I love the premise. The blurb makes it seem like it will be dual POV which I love and hope is true! Adding this one to my TBR :)
