About the book
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?
I rarely read YA. It’s a genre that I have to be in the mood for, and the mood doesn’t strike that often. I’m a big fan of this authors Adult Contemporary books, so I decided to give this one a try. And man am I SO glad I did. This book is fantastic. Unique with an exceptional cast of characters, it pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go. I loved the mystery of SN, and even though I had an idea who it was, it didn’t take away from the story at all. This was one of the best YA books I’ve ever read – I urge you to go get a copy right now!
This debut YA novel will win your heart – a definite must read!
