Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Ratings: 3/5 ⭐️

Genres: YA Fiction, Romance,  Contemporary


Everything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new ultra-intimidating prep school in Los Angeles. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. Is it an elaborate hoax? Or can she rely on SN for some much-needed help?

It’s been barely two years since her mother’s death, and because her father eloped with a woman he met online, Jessie has been forced to move across the country to live with her stepmonster and her pretentious teenage son.

In a leap of faith—or an act of complete desperation—Jessie begins to rely on SN, and SN quickly becomes her lifeline and closest ally. Jessie can’t help wanting to meet SN in person. But are some mysteries better left unsolved?


My Thoughts:

While I really did enjoy this book, I do have to admit that it was very cliche and predictable. Most characters didn’t really have much depth. They were only just there to fit a stereotype. For example, the mean queen bee who has blonde hair, the popular guy that has a crush on Jessie and the mysterious loner that Jessie has a crush on.

Jessie was very likeable and relatable and I loved her budding romance with SN but it was so painfully obvious who SN was. One thing I love about the book was that it was very entertaining. Not that originally but entertaining and cute.

One thing that I didn’t like about the book was the fact that I felt like most of the supporting characters had no development. The only characters I really connected to were Jessie, Ethan & Scarlett. The rest of the characters were just there.

I suggest this book for anyone whose looking for a quick entertaining romance book to read.
