Absolutely worth a read.
Our main characters in this story is David who is on the autism spectrum and has always been alone at school, so much that no one has ever sat with him at lunch. Then there's Kit who seems to usually fit in at school but a few weeks ago her dad died, and now she's trying to figure out her own way to grieve.
The plot of the story takes off when one day Kit doesn't really feel like dealing with her friends since they don't understand what she's going through. So she takes the chance to eat lunch with David, Kit enjoys how he is so honest and finds it refreshing. After that she continues hanging out with him and from there the relationship between the two of them starts to grow.
Overall I loved this book. I think it was just what I needed to get out of my reading slump. I would say read this if you want a cute contemporary summer read.
