Blog Tour: What to Say Next

About the Book:
When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David's blunt honesty--in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing at a time when everyone else is tiptoeing around her. David welcomes Kit's attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad's tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they'll find. Will it be a welcome relief for Kit? Or a devastating shock? And can their friendship survive the truth?

Release Date: July 11, 2017

My Thoughts:
I loved this book. I added it to my list of On Your Radar Books. I Loved Tell Me Three Things, so I'm happy to be part of this tour. I loved the unlikely friendship. I felt terrible for David - he had such a hard time understanding people and what they meant. I love how Kit seeks him out because she knows he doesn't have to fill up a silence with meaningless words. I enjoyed how they became friends and then something more. I like how Kit could hang out with David while dealing with her grief. I didn't see that twist coming and I love how it changed things. I liked how Kit is biracial, David is autistic, and grief brings them together. An excellent sophomore book; I can't wait to see what Julie Buxbaum writes next!
Library Recommendation: Purchase this one for your library - school and public!
