just finished reading

I like how the story is told from the dual narratives of David Drucker and Kit Lowell. I like the cast of secondary characters--that the adults are not necessarily stupid or bad. I may like David a bit more than Kit. It's quite a good book--quirky, full of ups and downs, heartbreaks and laugh-out-loud moments.

From the publisher:
Sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.

KIT: I don’t know why I decide not to sit with Annie and Violet at lunch. It feels like no one here gets what I’m going through. How could they? I don’t even understand.

DAVID: In the 622 days I’ve attended Mapleview High, Kit Lowell is the first person to sit at my lunch table. I mean, I’ve never once sat with someone until now. “So your dad is dead,” I say to Kit, because this is a fact I’ve recently learned about her.

When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?

You've made me want to read this book. There are 151 holds on anther book I want. This world is just so bloody cruel to readers. No wonder we quit reading and just go watch Netflix. ;o).
