Sometimes it takes a perfect stranger to bring out a side in you that you never knew existed. This is certainly the case for Mark and Kate who become fast friends when they cross paths on the most unusual of nights. A firm bond is formed through their romantic trials and tribulations as Kate is resisting a girl she has been in love with from afar and Ryan has to come to terms with his best friend falling love with someone else.
When Kate and Mark first meet, little do they know how important they will be in each other’s lives. You Know Me Well is a beautiful story about first love for the good, the bad and the ugly. Not only a love story, You Know Me Well discusses the hardship some young people face growing up within the LGBT community including the harsh reality of being rejected by not only peers but the family also.
You Know Me Well is expertly written by two renowned YA authors, Nina LaCour, and David Levithan. The combination of both authors shapes a unique prose in which the voices of both Kate and Mark are equally as strong, intriguing and also perfectly intertwined. Although there are a few clichés throughout, the quality of the narrative will easily have you hooked from the word go and the depth of the characters will keep you reading on until the very end.
