Synopsis

You and Me and Him by Kris Dinnison

Do not ignore a call from me when you know I am feeling neurotic about a boy. That is Best Friend 101. - Nash. Maggie and Nash are outsiders. She's overweight. He's out of the closet. The best of friends, they have seen each other through thick and thin, but when Tom moves to town at the start of the school year, they have something unexpected in common: feelings for the same guy.

Reviews

-The characters here are effectively nuanced, flawed but forgivable as they muddle through teenage conundrums of loyalty and love.---Bulletin -All of the protagonists . . .are pushed to ask themselves what expectations other people have of them and whether or not they have accepted these as their own. In the end, Maggie and the others become fully realized characters whose actions cannot be predicted by a YA lit algorithm.---School Library Journal -A powerful tale with an emotional rawness that will resonate with readers.---Booklist -Dinnison adeptly portrays the rising and falling hopes within an unconventional love triangle. . . . Readers will follow [Maggie] eagerly as she finds her voice and identity.---Publishers Weekly -Fans of realistic fiction featuring friendship, loyalty, and trust will enjoy this book.---VOYA -Firmly at the center stands a protagonist whose likable voice and authentic struggle to accept herself and find love in a world that would rather she shrink back--not to mention her crackling chemistry with Tom--lend this fresh, contemporary romantic comedy considerable appeal.---Horn Book Magazine

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
