Reggie isn't really a romantic: she's been hurt too often, and doesn't let people in as a rule. Plus, when you're dealing with the Three Stages of Depression, it's hard to feel warm and fuzzy. When Reggie meets Snake, though, he doesn't give her much of a choice. Snake has a neck tattoo, a Twizzler habit, and a fair share of arrogance, but he's funny, charming, and interested in Reggie. Snake also has an ex-girlfriend who's seven months pregnant. Good thing Reggie isn't a romantic.

Review quote

"...Offbeat romance, sarcastic humor, and the philosophy of life come together in a flying bildungsroman that is both touching and entertaining in its exploration of the internal conflicts of the human condition. With plain but evocative prose and a pair of ceaselessly endearing protagonists, Definitions of Indefinable Things is perfect for readers of middle school age and above." -VOYA "Taylor portrays depression with complexity in this authentic, often confrontational debut..." -Publishers Weekly "An emotionally engrossing and powerful exploration of depression and healing that many teens will find meaningful." -School Library Journal "A compelling exploration of mental illness." -Kirkus
