I’m so pleased about today’s giveaway. Heather and I got to read an early copy of Things I Should Have Known, and it’s so great: moving, funny, sensitive, and smart. I really recommend it, even if you don’t win one of the three copies we’re giving away today.
An unforgettable story about autism, sisterhood, and first love that’s perfect for fans of Jenny Han, Sophie Kinsella, and Sarah Dessen. New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things Julie Buxbaum raved: “I couldn’t put it down.”
Meet Chloe Mitchell, a popular Los Angeles girl who’s decided that her older sister, Ivy, who’s on the autism spectrum, could use a boyfriend. Chloe already has someone in mind: Ethan Fields, a sweet, movie-obsessed boy from Ivy’s special needs class.
Chloe would like to ignore Ethan’s brother, David, but she can’t—Ivy and Ethan aren’t comfortable going out on their own so Chloe and David have to tag along. Soon Chloe, Ivy, David, and Ethan form a quirky and wholly lovable circle. And as the group bonds over frozen yogurt dates and movie nights, Chloe is forced to confront her own romantic choices—and the realization that it’s okay to be a different kind of normal.
THE TASK: We have three copies to give away! I’m going to pick the winners at random, but because this book is so, please comment and tell us your favorite pop-culture siblings (in TV, movies, books. Are there songs about siblings? I’m sure there are).
