Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Jessie has been reeling since her mother passed away. She's been in a haze and barely looked up when her dad found a new girlfriend and decided to move them to California. Now she's starting a new school that's much fancier than her old one and living in a house that definitely doesn't feel like hers.

What Jessie needs is a friend. What she gets is an anonymous email from someone giving her hints on how to survive at her new school. When texts and emails from her anonymous tipster start to be the highlight of her day, Jessie can't tell if that's because her life is so lonely or because she actually likes the person on the other-side of the phone.

Even when things begin to pick up for Jessie and she makes friends and joins activities, she finds that the mysterious person on the other side of the phone is still the person she most wants to share her day with. Now the question is how to find out who he is... and does she want to risk changing everything?

Told through texts and emails, Tell Me Three Things is a romantic comedy for fans of You've Got Mail and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
