Sixteen-year-old Rowan is still reeling from her father’s suicide four months ago, after he failed to stop a man from leaping off an overpass to his death. The only witness is Eli, a teenaged boy wrapped deep in mourning for his own father, killed in action in Afghanistan. When Rowan and Eli meet, they recognize kindred spirits, and begin to navigate grief and its aftermath together.

Rowan can’t understand how her father could choose to leave her, and acts out, pushing away friends and taking risks with her safety. Rowan’s mother, wracked with her own guilt and sorrow over failing to save her husband, stops going to work and collects stray cats for comfort. Grief, fractured and unpredictable, rules their lives now. Rowan is lost—and sinking. But Eli represents a lifeline for Rowan, and as they struggle to make sense of what’s gone and what is left behind, they begin to fall in love. Me Since You is Laura Wiess at her finest—a beautiful, gripping and painfully honest examination of adolescence.

  1. Great choice this week, Ashley! I marked this book as ‘to-read’ on Goodreads the instant I heard of it as it sounds like just the sort of novel I would typically enjoy 🙂 Hopefully we won’t be disappointed!

  2. Lol this is completely unrelated (kinda), but this book title would be perfect for a sequel to Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You!

    It sounds heart wrenching, but I tend to like such books, as long as they have a happy ending.

    Sounds like a great pick, Ashley! 😀

  3. This actually looks REALLY good. I love the cover too. Simple and pretty. And the story sounds really cute too! Hopefully it’s good!!!
