Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a great book! I loved everything about Julie; she desperately misses her mom who has died. Her Dad meets someone in an internet grief support group and marries her one weekend while he is on a business trip (supposedly) and up and moves her to California. She leaves behind her best friend Scar and her new stepfamily is a total nightmare. But someone emails her after here first miserable day at the new school and calling himself Somebody Nobody begins to help her navigate the treachery of high school with emails and IMs. Who is this person??? As her life unfolds (this unknown friend encourages her to become friends with a nice girl and navigate the nasty girls. Julie gets a job at a cute little bookstore and tentatively begins to develop a life in her new world. Buxbaum does a great job with the characters, the highs and lows of friendship, and a secret admirer. I totally rooted for Julie - she does not know she is comfortable in her own skin and that she is strong. Buxbaum has crafted a book teens will love; there is humor, drama and so much more in this awesome book!!!
