Waiting on Wednesday: You Know Me Well - Nina LaCour & David Levithan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan!

You Know Me Well
Nina LaCour & David Levithan
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Waited on by: Amrutha

Who knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really?

Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is, until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other—and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more.

Told in alternating points of view by Nina LaCour and David Levithan, You Know Me Well is a story about navigating the joys and heartaches of first love, one truth at a time.

This honestly sounds really interesting, and while I've never read anything by Nina LaCour, David Levithan is straight up YA royalty so there's no way I can really be disappointed with this book. I can't wait to read it (it just recently came out but it's on wow this week because I'm waiting on getting a copy)!
