You Don’t Know Me but I Know You “

This book was really good. I wasn’t expecting to be this likeable. This story is about a seventeen years old girl Audrey who finds herself accidentally pregnant. This story revolves around the process of discovery and the decision than she has to make.
I picked this book up this evening and i manged to finish it by tonight. It was a fast paced read. With diverse characters.
This is a beautiful story of a biracial girl. Her adoptive mom is white and a red head. Their relationship was so beautiful and easy going. She is so supportive of Audrey and her decisions.
This story is about love, friendship, loss and just figuring things out. The bestfriends of Audrey; each has her own personalities and quirk. Rose is complex and sometime came out as cruel sometime. But that was also a part of  their relationship discovery, figuring out and strengthening of those two together.
The biological mother also had an important role in the story and she help or contributed towards Audrey’s decision.

Julian the boyfriend is amazingly so and sometimes was way to perfect. He never panicked or freaked about the situation which i found a bit un realistic, otherwise he was a very nice boyfriend.
The only think I find at fault was the third person narrative perspective of the story like it was being told from the eye of someone else not the mc and i found that weird
The character were very relate able and everyday life like. It was easy to agree with their decisions.
Overall this a very poignant read about an important topic.
