Author Jared Reck has a lot to live up to after his outstanding debt young adult novel. While I cannot wait…honestly, CANNOT, wait to read his future books, I need to share with you how amazing his current YA is/was. Terminology, whatever.
A Short History of the Girl Next Door takes your heart places. It made me laugh, and it even caused me to tear up (I don’t care that you know, whatever). This story is real, fresh, and meaningful.
I don’t want to give anything away, but once you start reading you will find yourself reaching for it at any break you can sneak. You will read it as soon as you wake up and before your eyes become too heavy.
The writing is sharp and sarcastic. The story is powerful, the characters honest.
Please, read this story even if you are not a teenager (lame sentence, I don’t care).
