More About You Know Me Well by David Levithan; Nina LaCour
 
 
 
Overview

Who knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really?

Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other -- and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more.

A book told in alternating points of view by Nina LaCour, the award-winning author of Hold Still and The Disenchantments, and David Levithan, the best-selling author of Every Day and co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green), You Know Me Well is a deeply honest story about navigating the joys and heartaches of first love, one truth at a time.

First loves, first heartbreaks

High school seniors Mark and Kate have sat next to each other in class all year but have rarely spoken. On the first night of Pride, the two run into each other in a San Francisco bar, where Kate is avoiding a setup with her (likely) soul mate, Violet, and Mark is trying to impress the (definite) love of his life, Ryan. Through this chance encounter, they realize they are each uniquely prepared to guide each other through the loneliness of first loves, friendship crises and heartbreaks that lie ahead.

You Know Me Well perfectly encapsulates those fraught, end-all-be-all feelings of high-school romance and graduation. Authors Nina LaCour and David Levithan have the utmost respect for their subjects. Kate and Mark—and all their friends—are allowed to feel like every fight and every heartbreak is the end of the world; they’re allowed to run away, to lash out, to curl up in bed and cry.

The raw emotion of this novel will delight fans of Rainbow Rowell and John Green.
