A Short History of the Girl Next Door

I love young adult fiction. I don't like anything too serious and this book does a good job of toeing that line. It's not something that is going to keep me awake at night worried, but it definitely invokes strong feelings that make you want to keep reading.

Other reviews mention that the language is strong in the book. I can understand the importance of them for storytelling elements which is probably why it is young adult fiction.

Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, this unrequited love story will appeal to fans of Jennifer Niven, John Green, and Jesse Andrews.

When I saw the book had similar attributes to John Green I was pretty excited to give this as a gift. He is definitely a prolific author and I have enjoyed his works for years.

This book doesn't disappoint!

The author does a good job of writing as an anxious teenager and getting inside the mind of a male learning to cope with loss.
