TELL ME THREE THINGS is about a girl named Jessie who has
just moved to L.A to live with her dad after her mom's death. Jessie continues
to deal with the death of her mother as she adjusts to a new family and school.
When SN (Somebody/Nobody), an anonymous student, offers to help Jessie at her
new school, she accepts and eventually befriends SN. While parts of this book
were predictable, it was not too cliché and it was still enjoyable. Jessie is a
smart, sincere, and realistic character that makes her relatable
and likeable. There's also a fun cast of characters adding a sense of lightness
and humor to the story. It's pretty easy to guess who SN would be but there's
still a slight suspense by the end to confirm who they are. I would recommend
this to readers that enjoy contemporary fiction, and want to read a sweet, heart-warming story, also for fans of Stephanie Perkins.
