Title: You Know Where to Find Me

Author: Rachel Cohn

Summary: Miles and Laura, first cousins, neighbors and childhood best friends, lived very different lives growing up. Laura, pretty and popular, has lived in the lap of luxury all her life. Miles, overweight and disenchanted, has only one other real friend, Jamal. When Laura suddenly and unexpectedly commits suicide, Miles is left behind to pick up the pieces. But when you are just as addicted to pills as Laura, how can you expect to put anything back together again?

This is a good story for mature readers. Rachel Cohn, known more for her comedic books Gingerbread and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, has written a devastating book about loss, grief, and moving on. Bitter, foul-mouthed (and minded) Miles is no hero – but her story will move you. 

Who will like this book?: People who like serious stories about real life. Miles has a lot of issues, they are discussed in a frank, funny way.
