Review: Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum


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?

Purchase: Amazon ~ Kindle

So this book almost seems like a Mean Girls and The Cinderella Story mashed up. It has a great story line. 

Poor Jessie gets moved to Los Angeles because her father married a woman he met online. A rich woman. She gets uprooted from everything she's ever known to the land of Mystic Toys. She doesn't fit in at all and everyone knows it.

Including SN. SN is a kind person who knows when someone needs someone. He/She isn't someone who is good at talking in person, hence why they didn't want to meet Jessie even though they talk almost every day through IM. 

Jessie goes through just about everyone who she thinks it is, in the end, it's who she wants it to be. SN is definitely who I wanted it to be and my heart was a bunch of butterflies by the end of the book. 

This book bumped up to one of my favorites, it's is so wonderful. The writing is good, she didn't use repetitive words. It wasn't written like it was for an adult, but a young adult. Not a childlike book, either. 

This book deserves five stars!!
