Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum was one of my favorite books in 2016. It was inevitable that I would devour this one, as well. While I can't say for sure that I loved it more thatn TMTT, I can say that I couldn't put it down. I read until I fell asleep and then picked it right back up when I awoke. The voice she gave to David who is on the autism spectrum was fascinating and enlightening. "They" say reading ficting increases a person's empathy. Well, this is a book that I feel could do wonders to those who misunderstand a person like David. Kit was also an amazingly well-developed heroine. The devastation that occurs in her life gives her new eyes and the ability to see past the stereotypes within high school, as well as seeing David for who he really is. This is a beautifully told story with some humor, light romance and a look into some amazing family dynamics. This book also solidifies Buxbaum as now one of my favoritie YA authors.
I started out listening to this story on audio interspersed with reading. Early in, I could no longer put the book down and read until finished. This is not saying that the audio wasn't compelling enough. It was actuallly very well done and the narration was wonderful.
