You know me well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour

“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.”

I have to say that I enjoyed this book overall. I love books that are told by separate people and written by separate authors so this was a really good read for me. It was a short one so it was pretty easy to get through as well. I loved the characters of Kate and Mark and just the development of their stories and how they helped each other through their first loves. I also loved the whole theme of it being pride week and how it started with a celebration of sorts and ended with one.

However, I only gave the book four stars because there were some characters that I found myself getting annoyed by. The first character that got on my nerves was Lehna. I just found her so pushy and so possessive. Like why did she get so annoyed at Kate? I didn’t get it. Also, I found Violet annoying at times. Like people have the right to feel nervous about meeting someone for the first time, it doesn’t make them aloof. I found it an easy, enjoyable read overall.
