My Experience: I started reading It’s Not Me, It’s You on 8/25/18 and finished it on 8/30/18. Most adorable read! Love the layout. There’s hardly any narrative at all so the read flow easily and quickly! I like the humor and the variety of characters and their backgrounds. I like the unique plot! This book is definitely a fun read, a nice break from reading slumps. Liam’s and Erza’s story are hilarious and Hutch is my favorite commentator. That first boyfriend and Tripp’s story were unexpected, but cute. Coco’s life at home is relatable to many Asian readers. Most of all, the characters in this story have wit! This book is told in the first person point of view following Avery Dennis, a popular high school senior who always has a boyfriend, until the unexpected incident. Avery is doing an Oral History of her dating life for a school project and she does it by interviewing students, especially all of her ex-boyfriends. Her classmates range from random freshmen to enemies at school sharing their opinions of Avery Dennis. Sometimes Avery adds a few notes to students’ comments to defend herself or expand the idea. Avery wants to understand herself through the perceptions of others. It’s Not Me, It’s You is a fast paced and laugh out loud read! It definitely has the voice of high school students. All of the characters are likable, even the worst ones. I like the worst ones like Cressida and Becca because their opinions sound reasonable. I like the positive vibes this book gives its readers, reminds me of Kasie West’s books. I think this book is very well written and developed. It sure keeps me hooked. I love the fun cover as well. I like the romance stories, especially not knowing what to expect next. This book is fantastic and I highly recommend everyone to read it! Pro: fast paced, page turner, positive vibes, humor, high school, boyfriends, diversity, cover, Con: none I rate it 5 stars! ***Disclaimer: Many thanks to Scholastic for the opportunity to read and review.
