Inside cover blurb:
“Everything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new ultra-intimidating prep school in Los Angeles. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. Is it an elaborate hoax? Or can she rely on SN for some much-needed help?
It’s been barely two years since her mother’s death, and because her father eloped with a woman he met online, Jessie has been forced to move across the country to live with her stepmonster and her pretentious teenage son.
In a leap of faith—or an act of complete desperation—Jessie begins to rely on SN, and SN quickly becomes her lifeline and closest ally. Jessie can’t help wanting to meet SN in person. But are some mysteries better left unsolved?”

Me at the big reveal of Jessie’s mysterious SN:
Am I the only one who saw this coming from a mile away?
This book is not plausible, no. But it is a cute story about friendship, grief, and the struggles of growing up. Good escapist read with just enough real-life drama.
Plus: Theo, Jessie’s new stepbrother, and Scarlett, Jessie’s bestie left behind in Chicago, were probably my favorite parts of the book.
Minus: Jessie spends a lot of time believing she is ugly/inferior to her new rich classmates which I could have done without.
