THREE THINGSChapter 1Seven hundred and thirty three days after my mom died, forty five days after my dad eloped with a stranger he met on the Internet, thirty days after we then up and moved to California, and only seven days after starting as a junior at a brand new school where I know approximately no one, an email arrives Which would be weird, an anonymous letter just popping up like that in my in box, signed with the bizarre alias Somebody Nobody, no less, except my life has become so unrecognizable lately that nothing feels shocking any It took until nowseven hundred and thirty three whole days in which Ive felt the opposite of normalfor me to discover this one important life lesson turns out you can grow immune to weird.To Jessie A Holmes jesster567 gmail.com From Somebody Nobody somebodynobo gmail.com Subject your Wood Valley H.S spirit guidehey there, Ms Holmes we havent met irl, and Im not sure we ever will I mean, we probably will at some pointmaybe Ill ask you the time or something equally mundane and beneath both of usbut well never actually get to know each other, at least not in any sort of real way that matters which is why I figured Id email you under the cloak of anonymity.and yes, I realize Im a sixteen year old guy who just used the words cloak of anonymity and so there it is already reason 1 why youll never get to know my real name I could never live the shame of that pretentiousness down.cloak of anonymity seriously and yes, I also realize that most people would have just texted, but couldnt figure out how to do that without telling you who I am.I have been watching you at school not in a creepy way though I wonder if even using the word creepy by definition makes me creepy anyhow, its just you intrigue me you must have noticed already that our school is a wasteland of mostly blond, vacant eyed Barbies and Kens, and something about younot just your newness, because sure, the rest of us have all been going to school together since the age of fivebut something about the way you move and talk and actually dont talk but watch all of us like we are part of some bizarre National Geographic documentary makes me think that you might be different from all the other idiots at school.you make me want to know what goes on in that head of yours Ill be honest Im not usually interested in the contents of other peoples heads my own is work enough.the whole point of this email is to offer my expertise sorry to be the bearer of bad news navigating the wilds of Wood Valley High School aint easy this place may look all warm and welcoming, with our yoga and meditation and reading corners and coffee cart excuse me Koffee Kart , but like every other high school in America or maybe even worse , this place is a freaking war zone.and so I hereby offer up myself as your virtual spirit guide feel free to ask any question except of course my identity , and Ill do my best to answer who to befriend short list , who to stay away from longer list , why you shouldnt eat the veggie burgers from the cafeteria long story that you dont want to know involving jock jizz , how to get an A in Mrs Stewarts class, and why you should never sit near Ken Abernathy flatulence issue Oh, and be careful in gym Mr Shackleman makes all the pretty girls run extra laps so he can look at their asses.that feels like enough information for now.and fwiw, welcome to the jungle.yours truly, Somebody NobodyTo Somebody Nobody somebodynobo gmail.com From Jessie A Holmes jesster567 gmail.com Subject Elaborate hoax SN Is this for real Or is this some sort of initiation prank, la a dumb rom com Youre going to coax me into sharing my deepest, darkest thoughts fears, and then, BAM, when I least expect it, youll post them on Tumblr and Ill be the laughingstock of WVHS If so, youre messing with the wrong girl I have a black belt in karate I can take care of myself.If not a joke, thanks for your offer, but no thanks I want to be an embedded journalist one day Might as well get used to war zones now And anyhow, Im from Chicago I think I can handle the Valley.To Jessie A Holmes jesster567 gmail.com From Somebody Nobody somebodynobo

nosyPhilistine is a big word for a teenage guy.To Jessie A Holmes jesster567 gmail.com From Somebody Nobody somebodynobo gmail.com Subject lazy, verbose, nosy, and handsomethats not the only thing thats whew caught myself from making the obvious joke just in time you totally set me up, and I almost blew it.To Somebody Nobody somebodynobo gmail.com From Jessie A Holmes jesster567 gmail.com Subject Lazy, verbose, nosy, handsome, and modestThats what she said.See, thats the thing with email Id never say something like that in person Crude Suggestive Like I am the kind of girl who could pull off that kind of joke Who, face to face with an actual member of the male species, would know how to flirt, and flip my hair, and, if it came to it, know how to do much than kiss For the record, I do know how to kiss Im not saying Id ace an AP exam on the subject or, you know, win Olympic gold, but Im pretty sure Im not awful I know this purely by way of comparison Adam Kravitz Ninth grade Him all slobber and angry, rhythmic tongue, like a zombie trying to eat my head Me all too willing participant, with three days of face chafing Email is much like an ADD diagnosis Guaranteed extra time on the test In real life, I constantly rework conversations after the fact in my head, edit them until Ive perfected my witty, lighthearted, effortless banterall the stuff that seems to come naturally to other girls A waste of time, of course, because by then Im way too late In the Venn diagram of my life, my imagined personality and my real personality have never converged Over email and text, though, I am given those few additional beats I need to be the better, edited version of myself To be that girl in the glorious intersection.I should be careful I realize that now Thats what she said Really Cant decide if I sound like a frat boy or a slut either way, I dont sound like me More importantly, I have no idea who I am writing to Unlikely that SN truly is some do gooder who feels sorry for the new girl Or better yet, a secret admirer Because of course thats straight where my brain went, the result of a lifetime of devouring too many romantic comedies and reading too many improbable books Why do you think I kissed Adam Kravitz He was my neighbor back in Chicago What better story is there than the girl who discovers that true love has been waiting right next door all along Of course, my neighbor turned out to be a zombie with carbonated saliva, but no matter Live and learn.Surely SN is a cruel joke Hes probably not even a he Just a mean girl preying on the weak Because lets face it I am weak Possibly even pathetic I lied I dont have a black belt in karate I am not tough Until last month, I thought I was I really did Life threw its punches, I got shat on, but I took it in the mouth, to mix my metaphors Or not Sometimes it felt just like getting shat on in the mouth My only point of pride no one saw me cry And then I became the new girl at WVHS, in this weird area called the Valley, which is in Los Angeles but not in Los Angeles or something like that, and I ended up here because my dad married this rich lady who smells like fancy almonds, and juice costs twelve dollars here, and I dont know I dont know anything any.I am as lost and confused and alone as I have ever been No, high school will never be a time I look back on fondly My mom once told me that the world is divided into two kinds of people the ones who love their high school years and the ones who spend the next decade recovering from them What doesnt kill you makes you stronger, she said.But something did kill her, and Im not stronger So go figure maybe theres a third kind of person the ones who never recover from high school at all.Here are three things about this book 1 It s sweet and funny and romantic 2 the mystery at the heart of the story will keep you turning the pages 3 I have a feeling you ll be very happy you read it Jennifer E Smith, author of Th e Statistical
