Book 31: Tell Me Three Things

By: Julie Buxbaum

☆☆☆☆

Plot (Goodreads Summary):

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?

Review:

I don’t know why I didn’t highlight lines in my books before, but I just didn’t. This is one of the first books I have highlighted and lets just say I had some serious theories. For instance, SN. The moment the word, Ethan, appeared on paper I highlighted it 0 along with Caleb and Liam. And I was right. Correct all the way.

I had a feeling that Liam and Caleb weren’t SN but were suspects, while Ethan was just, everything. I highlighted so many Ethan-and-Jessie-and-SN moments and I laughed at Jessica for not knowing who she was IMing. There was a good 100 pages where she thought it was Caleb and I low key almost DNF the book because it was a third of the book.

Besides that, I really admire Jessica. I give in to apologies so quick, but she just held her ground. And then she never did anything about Gem’s comments or any of that.

And then there was Gem. Let’s talk about Gem. She should be arrested just for existing. What the hell is her problem? And why in God’s nation is she all over Ethan when she’s with Liam? When talking to Jessie, her dictionary consists of: Slut, whore, fat ugly bitch. She just needs to slow down. There’s a reason Liam left her for Jessie.

Blogger’s Note:

I’ve moved reviews to Wednesday since my other posts are on Sunday. I am going to start another theme soon because it is really hard to find pink bookish stuff for my Instagram. It’s gonna be an old theme.

Love you all ♡
