So Much Closer

So Much Closer - Susane Colasanti The story of one angry genius teen girl who leaves New Jersey to follow a boy she barely knows and likes from afar. I loved the descriptions of New York and the highline. I just wish some of the conflictual angst in Brooke's mind was resolved- as well her relationship with her parents and ultimately what happens with Scott. There is a lot of dysfunction in her family and a little bit of growth in her view of the world. The voice is cynical and guarded.

Content- sleeping over at a boy's house and making out in bedrooms. No violence or swearing.
