Review: It's Not Me, It's You

Review: It's Not Me, It's You by Stephanie Kate Strohm

One high school girl's comedic examination of her dating past as told by the friends, family, and boys who were involved!

Avery Dennis is a high school senior and one of the most popular girls in her class. But a majorly public breakup with the guy she's been dating causes some disastrous waves. It is right before prom and Avery no longer has the perfect date. She runs the prom committee, how could she not show up with somebody?

Post-breakup, Avery gets to thinking about all of the guys that she has ever dated. How come none of those relationships ever worked out? Could it be her fault? Avery decides to investigate. In history class she's learning about this method of record-keeping called "oral history" and she has a report due. So Avery decides to go directly to the source. Avery tracks down all of the guys she's ever dated, and uses that information, along with thoughts from her friends, family, and teachers, to compile a total account of her dating history.

Avery discovers some surprises about herself and the guys she's spent time with -- just in time for prom night!-summary and cover via Goodreads

Plot: I really love how the story in this book was told! It was really unique and worked very well for this story! I also really loved getting a glimpse into all of her past boyfriends. This book had me laughing so much!

Characters: I really liked reading about Avery! And Hutch! Love him! It was easy to get a good grasp on everyone's personality. All the characters personalities were developed really well. Everyone in the story, from the big roles like her best friend Coco, and her enemy Bizzy, to the smaller roles like her ex-boyfriends, and her parents were really well done. It was easy to distinguish between all of them, and I was never confused when a name was brought up again.

The cover: It's really cute, and I like it a lot!

Overall: I'm already able to tell that this is going to be one of my top ten reads of 2017! It was so good, and I laughed so much while reading it! The way the story was told was so unique. I highly recommend this YA book to everyone! :)

I checked this book out from my library.
