I was in the mood for a young adult fiction book and thought this was going to be really different and fun to read!
Thank you Delacorte Press for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: When Chris Schweitzer takes a hit of whippets and passes out face first on the cement, his nose isn’t the only thing that changes forever. Instead of staying home with his friends for the last summer after high school, he’s shipped off to live with his famous physicist but royal jerk of a father to prove he can “play by the rules” before Dad will pay for college. Or . . . not. In an alternate time line, Chris’s parents remain blissfully ignorant about the accident, and life at home goes back to normal–until it doesn’t. A new spark between his two best (straight) friends quickly turns Chris into a (gay) third wheel, and even worse, the truth about the whippets incident starts to unravel. As his summer explodes into a million messy pieces, Chris wonders how else things might have gone. Is it possible to be jealous of another version of yourself in an alternate reality that doesn’t even exist? With musings on fate, religion, parallel universes, and the best way to eat a cinnamon roll, Me Myself & Him examines how what we consider to be true is really just one part of the much (much) bigger picture.
I thought this was such a unique read! I was a little nervous that it would be hard to follow two different storylines at once, but it wasn’t so bad after all! I love being able to see the “what-if” of a character’s choice. It’s really unlike something I’ve read before! It’s a fun summer afternoon read for young adult fiction lovers alike.
