Review quote

Strasnick's slim second offering [HER AND ME AND YOU] packs a lot into its short chapters: divorce, broken friendships, crushes, the lines between love and sex and more. Characterization, scenes, dialogue and setting are seamlessly distilled into so few sharp, image-rich phrases that the novel reads almost as if it were written in verse. Less is definitely more here, and readers are plunged into Alex's physical and emotional world within three to four words. Although the plot moves swiftly, the author's ability to capture Alex's inner world in so few words give the novel depth and balance. Complex and thought-provoking.

Complex and thought-provoking."--Kirkus" "["Her and Me and You"] explores the loss of innocence and the tearing down and rebuilding of relationships in a relatable fashion. The simplicity of the text is its power. Short chapters, mostly dialogue, come across like stills in a glossy magazine. Reluctant readers and their peers will be drawn to this minimalist romance and its intriguing characters." --"Booklist" "Alex's first-person narrative and the challenges of making a new start ring true; teen girls will gobble up the quick, engaging read." --"Horn Book Magazine" "[T]he novel has a fresh, modern feel and Strasnick offers an elegant portrayal of one teen's struggle to come to terms with her family, her friendships, and herself." --"SLJ"
