From the author of Epic Fail comes the story of Chloe Mitchell, a Los Angeles girl on a quest to find love for her autistic sister, Ivy. Ethan, from Ivy’s class, seems like the perfect match. It’s unfortunate that his older brother, David, is one of Chloe’s least favorite people, but Chloe can deal, especially when she realizes that David is just as devoted to Ethan as she is to Ivy.
Uncommonly honest and refreshingly funny, this is a story about sisterhood, autism, and first love. Chloe, Ivy, David, and Ethan, who form a quirky and lovable circle, will steal readers’ hearts and remind us all that it’s okay to be a different kind of normal.
I just adore every young adult book that Claire LaZebnik writes. Each one is always a time lime of events that just makes your heart melt for so many different reasons. Things I Should Have Known is no exception and is not only a cute read, but an eye-opening one as well.
It truly takes a special person to write about such a sensitive topic such as autism. Then to take a topic so serious and make sweet and fun is just something else. There are actually four main characters that our story revolves around. Watching Chloe, Ivy, Ethan, and David goes through so many different life lessons is weaved flawlessly.
I absolutely adored watching Chloe and Ivy's journey. This story is so much more than just a book with autism. It's romantic, coming of age, family-filled, and overall an adorable read. Claire LaZebnik writes wonderful young adult stories and hasn't let me down yet!
