Julie Buxbaum captures a story of friendship, a new life and moving into one amazing book; Tell Me Three Things. After Jessie’s father remarries, Jessie must move to Chicago and start a new life away from her best friend. On the first day of her fancy new prep school, everything goes wrong. Jessie is not sure that she can handle the new school. The next day she gets an email from someone named Somebody/Nobody (SN for short) that says that they will help Jessie fit in. Both of them start emailing back and forth and Jessie makes some new friends. This book was very good, however, it can be quite repetitive since the emails are mostly the same. It made me want to keep reading so that I could find out who SN was. Even though I guessed who SN was by the middle of the book, I still continued reading and I’m glad I did. I would recommend this book for ages thirteen and up. Rating- 4/5 stars @readit12 of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library
I had very high expectations for this book, due to a friend's recommendation. Was a good book with an interesting plot that keeps your interest until the end of the book. A very sweet novel that captures all the emotions of Jessie, as she moves to a new place. The secret love interest will keep you guessing throughout the book. Was a tad bit cliche for my liking, however some parts really stood out from other romantic books. The humour and witty comments were a fun addition. Tell Me Three Things was a little unrealistic and sometimes the situations were repetitive. The author develops the characters well and near the end of the book you will feel truly content with Jessie’s character growth along with some of the other characters. Overall, a pretty well written book with good character development, rate four out of five!
