Guess who’s back,
Tell a friend 👋
“Defne, where have you been?!” Well, let me tell you where I have been for the past, what, 3 months? Hell.
There isn’t another way to describe these months for me, even though using the word hell may be going a bit too overboard, I feel like during the 16 years that I’ve been gracing the world with my presence (hello), these three months have been the worst I’ve ever seen. From school, hectic schedules, extracurricular activities and trying to balance every little thing with my flimsy little arms to friendship problems and confusing boys, I’m pretty sure I’m internally dead right now.
And where does reading belong to in all of this? N o w h e r e. I was only able to read, like, 3 books or something in the last 3 months and I’m sure one of them was a school book that I was forced to finish. I finished reading We Were Never Here, and its review is on Goodreads but other than that, nope, not one page.
Still, here I am, with a brand new review, after a 3-month hiatus! Let the party start!!
Title: Tell Me Three Things
Author: Julie Buxbaum
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Synopsis: “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?”
