After her estranged brother suddenly dies, a girl embarks on a road trip to rediscover who her brother really was in this contemporary YA novel.

When Ellie's estranged brother, Luke, dies in a car accident, she's not sure whether to be devastated that she lost the person who was once her best friend or enraged, still, that he left without a word a year ago. Now, the only people who seem to understand what she's going through are Luke's best friend and his ex-girlfriend, who she bonds with over their desire to figure out where Luke went when he walked out of their lives.

As she gets closer to them, and closer to Cade, a boy who seems determined to get to know her better, she realizes that she’s not the only one with reasons to be angry at Luke. And when Ellie makes a discovery that changes everything, she and her new friends hit the road, hoping that following Luke's trail will bring them answers about the life Luke was living away from them.

She's the Worst
Lauren Spieiler
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: September 3, 2019
Goodreads
Sisters April and Jenn haven’t been close in years. Jenn’s too busy with school, the family antique shop, and her boyfriend, and April would rather play soccer and hang out with the boy next door.

But when April notices her older sister is sad about staying home for college, she decides to do something about it. The girls set off to revive a pact they made as kids: spend an epic day exploring the greatest hits of their childhood and all that Los Angeles has to offer.

Then April learns that Jenn has been keeping a secret that could rip their family—and their feuding parents—apart. With only one day to set things right, the sisters must decide if their relationship is worth saving, or if the truth will tear them apart for good.
Why I want to read this book

I thought Spieller's debut, Your Destination is on the Left, was fun and heartwarming. Therefore, I automatically was interested in reading her new release, but I think Rachel Lynn Solomon summed in up with her blurb:
Part sister story, part romantic comedy, SHE'S THE WORST spotlights two bold, ambitious girls trying to rebuild their fractured relationship. I devoured this love letter to summer, sisterhood, and Los Angeles.
I feel like I will devour this one as well.

What are you waiting on?

    1. I know! I have a copy of Ghosts, but I have not been lucky enough to get the other....yet. I almost requested it on NG, and then I remembered that S&S are all PDFs there. (I am currently stuck with two, because I didn't realize, who the pub was)

  15. Ooo another road trip book. My daughter just asked if I would be ok if she went on a road trip with a bunch of friends....I said yes but inside said no. She is 18 so of course she can. I kinda hope she does. =)
