Synopsis

How it Ends by Catherine Lo

There are two sides to every story. It's friends-at-first-sight for Jessie and Annie, proving the old adage that opposites attract. Shy, anxious Jessie would give anything to have Annie's beauty and confidence. And Annie thinks Jessie has the perfect life, with her close-knit family and killer grades. They're BFFs ...until suddenly they're not. Told through alternating points of view, How It Ends is the story of a friendship from first meeting to breakup, set against a tumultuous sophomore year of bullying, boys, and backstabbing.

Reviews

.. .How It Ends feels, at points, both painfully tragic and true. Lo s lucid treatment of mental illness and risky behavior is refreshing, hard, and necessary. Booklist Lo skillfully shows how the girls very different past experiences affect their perspectives; anger and jealousy... complicate matters, and both girls spiral downward before they can learn to trust again. Despite dark moments, Lo s novel is an inspiring read, revealing the power of courage and compassion. Publishers Weekly A thoughtful depiction of teen friendship and the competing costs of concealing and revealing the truth. Kirkus As harrowing and realistic a look at the life cycle of a young friendship as I've ever seen. It's by turns funny, warm, soulful, and heart wrenching. The author's work with teens shines through in her razor sharp dialogue. Jeff Zentner, author of The Serpent King How It Ends is a realistic story about the beautiful complexities of friendship, from the first meeting to the first betrayal, and all the secrets and self-discovery in-between. Totally compelling. Alexis Bass, author ofLove & Other Theories
