I received an e-ARC of John Corey Whaley's newest novel, to read and promote at my library if I enjoyed it. I get excited every time he has a new book, Highly Illogical Behavior, and this one was no different. Despite the story being something I've never experienced before, or subject matter I haven't read about, the teen problems that the characters faced on top of those issues were so realistic and true to teens these days. It was amazing and had me in tears. I would highly recommend this to readers who loved The Fault in Our Stars but are now over the "dying teen" trope.
My rating: 5 stars
Summary from goodreads:
Sixteen-year-old Solomon is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left the house in three years, which is fine by him.
Ambitious Lisa desperately wants to get into the second-best psychology
program for college (she’s being realistic). But how can she prove she
deserves a spot there?
Solomon is the answer.
to “fix” Sol, Lisa thrusts herself into his life, introducing him to
her charming boyfriend Clark and confiding her fears in him. Soon, all
three teens are far closer than they thought they’d be, and when their
facades fall down, their friendships threaten to collapse, as well.
