Overview
Reggie isn't really a romantic: she's been hurt too often, and doesn't let people in as a rule. Plus, when you're dealing with the Three Stages of Depression, it's hard to feel warm and fuzzy. When Reggie meets Snake, though, he doesn't give her much of a choice. Snake has a neck tattoo, a Twizzler habit, and a fair share of arrogance, but he's funny, charming, and interested in Reggie. Snake also has an ex-girlfriend who's seven months pregnant. Good thing Reggie isn't a romantic. Definitions of Indefinable Things follows three teens as they struggle to comprehend love, friendship, and depression--and realize one definition doesn't alwayscover it.

Reggie Mason, a snarky 11th-grade loner who uses hurtful comments and hostile glares to avoid forming connections, finds herself drawn to the charmingly conceited Snake Eliot when their paths cross while refilling prescriptions for antidepressants. After grudgingly going on an anti-date with the tenacious Snake, Reggie learns that hes a soon-to-be fatherand the boyfriend of popular classmate Carla Banks. Reggie struggles to ignore her attraction to Snake and Carlas attempts at friendship, but her carefully constructed wall begins to crumble as her strained relationship with her religious mother worsens: All she saw in me was a walking mistake, a sin to be forgiven, a disease to be cured. Taylor portrays depression with complexity in this authentic, often confrontational debut; her characters are very real, frequently making terrible and selfish decisions, and their potential is evident. Reggies growth is particularly notable as she finally confronts her grief and fear, allowing herself to be vulnerable. Taylor offers no simple answers about depression, teen pregnancy, or complicated relationships, but leaves readers with an enduring sense of hope. Ages 14up. Agent: Maria Vicente, P.S. Literary. (Apr.)
