Ugh Ugh Ugh Ugh Ughhhhhhhhh There s this book called Weird Girl and What s His Name by Meagan Brothers about a girl and her gay best friend who she considers her soul mate That book is full of emotion and conflict and what it means to love and be loved in return This book, which has a very similar premise, is about melodrama and self depreciation.You and Me and Him sounded like an interesting read, a girl and guy both in love with the same boy It s not necessarily a new formula, but it just soun [...]
Oh, believe me, I have a lot of shit to talk about this book.Full review to come
I really really didn t like this It had so much potential But everything about this book was dull the characters, the writing, the cheesy unrealistic romance, the stereotypical high school drama Even the friendship between Maggie and Nash which was supposed to be this huge part of the story felt shallow.
Early on, Kris Dinnison s novel, You and Me and Him gives off a similar vibe to many other YA books about high school misfits If you re at all familiar with the genre, then you know the drill chubby girl, gay best friend, cruel jocks and vapid prom queens, with the obligatory whistle blowing, hard nosed lady PE instructor, just in case there wasn t enough here for the Gleeks to feast on The only thing it seemed to be missing was a night out at The Rocky Horror Picture Show.But, as I read , somet [...]
This was an okay book Nothing too special about it I actually regret investing my time on it, it s a little immature so i d totally recommend it to younger people The writing made the book very gripping which made me fly through it, but I did not do it for the sake of the story but only because I was enjoying the writing However, it was still lacking a lot of details.There is a very serious issue for me here why does every gay guy in books like art Is it like a new stereotype or something Anyway [...]
This review was originally posted on Book Blog BirdYou, Me and Him is the story of Maggie and Nash She s overweight and he s gay and they re social outcasts in their high school, but that s okay, they don t want to be part of the popular set anyway They re both non starters as far as romance is concerned, so when stunning new boy, Tom, joins their school and showers both of them with attention things start to get awkward.So, I enjoyed this book and I really liked the author s writing style I tho [...]

Let s get one thing straight from the very beginning I am not one of those shrinking violet fat girls I don t sit alone in my bedroom playing Billie Holiday albums while drowning my sorrows in a carton of ice cream.Those are the first two sentences of the book And then the main character, Maggie, spends the rest of the book showing that, in spite of the first two sentences of the book, she IS going to sit alone in her bedroom playing Billie Holiday albums while drowning her sorrows in raw cookie [...]
Told in the first person, the main character of this YA novel is Maggie Nash Maggie is overweight and always feels as if she is in the outside looking in most of the time One good thing she has is that her best friend Nash is right there by here side However, when a new kid named Tom starts school, the two best friends find themselves on the outs with each other for the first time I don t know what else to say about this one besides I was pretty bored throughout the book from beginning to end It [...]
Read Full Review Over At fANGIRLconfessionsI received a review copy courtesy of the author publisher This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.After finishing A Million Miles Away, I jumped straight into You And Him And Me, and I immediately noticed a subtle connection between both books While their stories were completely different, they shared common concepts or aspects as I like to call them, and because they were so similar, I decided to create what I call a Cont [...]
You can see this full review and at Book Briefs bookbriefs You and Me and Him is a young adult contemporary that explores the age of old question of what happens when two best friends like the same guy Will he come between the two friends This review is going to be a bit different than my normal reviews because of the nature of the book, I don t want to give away any specifics, because I fear if I say something, anything at all it will give you some idea of how the whole Tom situation is going [...]
This was going really great for me until about 3 4 through when every character but Maggie turned into a huge douchebag for basically no reason I loved Maggie, and I completely identified with her in a way I typically don t with YA protagonists She s quirky in that hip, sarcastic way that seemingly all YA protagonists are nowadays she listens to vinyl, jazz no less, for instance , but she s so raw and realistic and sweet and conflicted as well But when there s very little story other than a love [...]
Dinnison s fantastic novel is about friendship, teenage angst, and the confusion of attraction Her main character Maggie is a force of nature I found her to be very deep, and consequently did not mind following her tangled, confused thoughts and feelings The humor and several charming characters gave a nice balance to the drama and intensity I look forward to reading books by this author.
I don t care what people say, I thought this was freaking sweet Yes, this begins as a love triangle story, but it s really a book about honesty and self confidence I loved the hell out of Maggie and her voice Her frustrations and fears were so real and her self deprecating humor was funny and painful to read I felt like this was a combo of a great romance and a nod to Dumplin by Julie Murphy Cute, fun, entertaining.
Full disclosure I m buddies with Kris Dinnison and just got to read her galley a few months prior to publication thanks, Kris I loved the narrator of this book, who learns to embrace her inherent confidence even in the face of peer mockery and self doubt This book has a giant, brave heart Preorder now
Best Friend oder Boyfriend Das ist hier die Frage DDieses Buch war eine sehr niedliche Geschichte mit liebensw rdigen Charakteren Ich mochte den Schreibstil sehr gerne und dass die Autorin gezeigt hat, dass das Leben eines Jugendlichen auch hart sein kann und nicht immer sch n ist.
This book reminds me of an episode of Will and Grace Fingers crossed I love this one
MY OPINION I really loved this book I picked it up while browsing in the library one day and I found it a real gem.This book was so sweet and gorgeous It s about a girl and a boy who are best friends They are both the outsiders The girl, Maggie, is overweight, and the boy, Nash, is gay Maggie and Nash both have had their share of crushes and unrequited love.Then a new boy comes to their high school and they re left with a problem Both Nash and Maggie start to have feelings for this mysterious bo [...]
A copy of this novel was provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for review via Edelweiss.That s it I am officially cursed with incorrect synopses.When I requested You and Me and Him, I thought that it would be told from two perspectives a straight girl, and a gay boy I also thought that they would both fall in love with the same bisexual guy.I couldn t have been wrong You and Me and Him is told only from the perspective of the straight girl, and the guy that both friends fall in love with is als [...]
I m confused about what I was meant to feel by the end of this book, and the book seemed to just play with a lot of established tropes at the beginning, which is the reason it s not a perfect book But, in all honesty, I actually really enjoyed it While shelved with LGBT, I wouldn t really consider this so much an LGBT book so much as a book that has a stereotypically bitchy queen gay teen character as a sidekick to the main protagonist Also the owner of Square Peg was just a bit too perfect to b [...]
oh my goodness, this book is just the right amount of funny and passion I needed to read this kind of book for a while it was really good thank you to my friend that said i needed to read this book my favorite character from the book is the record shop owner Quinn he was so funny and caring throughout the entire thing I wish Nash would have realized what Maggie was doing for him sooner but it also would have changed the ending entirely Tom what do i have to say about him so many things I don t e [...]
In this well written heartwarming YA novel, we are treated to a friendship between two teens, the brooding, gay, Nash and the overweight, kindhearted Maggie But when a new guy moves into town, Tom, both of them have feelings for him Will this guy come between their friendship I really liked the way all of the characters were written, especially the main characters Each one had very memorable and distinct personalities, and I really thought the plot flowed very nicely All in all, a sweet, pleasan [...]
Another book to remind me of the pain of my high school years Fairly even handed explorations of gender, sexuality, body image, and the awkwardness of friendship and romance in the teen years I really liked all of the characters in this book, particularly the rad brave main character who hands out cookies as a hobby.
I highly recommend this book to people who like character driven novels and cookies Please give us the recipes This is a story about friendship and identity and forgiveness The characters are unique, believable and you want to root for them the whole way through.
you guys are better than reality TV QuinnThe writing style is nice but the story of this novel seem silly, not too dumb I can not understand the main character Some things are not clarified Does this book have a sequel
A perfect next pick for people who like Eleanor Park or the oldie but goodie My Heartbeat A true romcom but smartly written with satisfying banter a truly heartwarming best friendship, too.
THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING I LOVED ITTTT It was so cute and interesting 2 best friends, a girl and a guy whose gay, both fall for the same new guy The new guy seems perfect in every sense and he joins these 2 misfits and becomes their friend They start hanging out individually and eventually they both fall for him The guy Nash has already dibbed him so Maggie can t like him even though she does Maggie is struggling with being overweight and everyone telling her to lose weight and to just exercise She [...]
You and Me and Him was an average book I thought it was quite fun and light hearted and I managed to read the majority in one sitting I thought that Maggie was an okay character, but she was a gold star compared to Nash He was so.trating, and I hated how he A believed the first thing someone told him about his lifelong best friend and B got mad at said best friend for liking an attractive, mostly nice, smart, STRAIGHT guy because he called dibs on someone who was never going to like him back It [...]
