Review by: Tina


A sweet and unlikely friendship sparked between popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker. Kit is emotionally vulnerable and David is inquisitive and bluntly honest. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find.


It's been a while since I've last posted. I felt I needed to take a break and return to reading with fresh eyes. But getting back into reading took some effort. Nothing peaked my interest. So I decided to look into a contemporary novel. Boy were there plenty to choose from.


The story of Kit and David all began when Kit sat down at David's lunch table one day. She wanted some peace and quiet from everyday chaos and loner David saw this random occurrence as his chance to make a friend. Kit recently lost her father to a car accident and feeling emotionally frail and vulnerable, she couldn't face her peers and sought friendship from an unlikely loner. David, who turns out to be an Asperger, used this chance to find other interactions with Kit. Together they found comfort and joy in each other's company.

I felt this novel is such a cute and sweet contemporary. I really felt for David Drucker. His insecurities, his misunderstandings are so genuine. And the things that he say are witty and intellectual. He has great family support and his interactions with Kit are funny and joyful. Really enjoyed this story.
