What to Say Next (YA)

by Julie Buxbaum

After her father’s tragic death in a car accident that still haunts her, Kit needs space. She finds refuge at the lunch table of David Drucker, a quiet outsider with Asperger’s (although he’ll be the first to tell you that’s not an actual disorder anymore). An unlikely friendship forms, which opens both of their worlds in unexpected ways.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a little predictable at times, and there was a fair amount of swearing, but I quickly fell in love with the characters. The themes of honesty, being yourself, and finding your tribe made this high school romance feel fresh.
