Additional Information

Named One of the 16 Best Young Adult Books of 2016 (So Far) by Paste Magazine!

Trixie Watson has two very important goals for senior year: to finally save enough to buy the set of Doctor Who figurines at the local comic books store, and to place third in her class and knock Ben West--and his horrendous new mustache that he spent all summer growing—down to number four.

Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben's, including give up sleep and comic books—well, maybe not comic books—but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade. Over a decade later, it's time to declare a champion once and for all.

The war is Trixie's for the winning, until her best friend starts dating Ben's best friend and the two are unceremoniously dumped together and told to play nice. Finding common ground is odious and tooth-pullingly-painful, but Trixie and Ben's cautious truce slowly transforms into a fandom-based tentative friendship. When Trixie's best friend gets expelled for cheating and Trixie cries foul play, however, they have to choose who to believe and which side they're on—and they might not pick the same side.

Stephanie Perkins meets 10 Things I hate About You in The Only Thing Worse than Me Is You, a fresh, romantic debut from author Lily Anderson inspired by Much Ado About Nothing.

Okay, so, flailing aside, this book really was incredible. I read it in approximately three hours, and couldn't put it down. Dad came into my room well after bedtime, wondering why my light was still in, and I shoved the book in his face and squealed incoherently for at least five minutes. He was not impressed. I, on the other hand, fell asleep still grinning. I LOVE hate-to-love stories, and this one, with the added geekiness... *swoons*
I absolutely loved this book for a variety of reasons but the biggest being the characters th e main character Trixie was funny, witty and smart without seeming annoying she was an overall great character and I loved how she interacted with other characters especially Ben. The story was clever and managed to intrigue you despite being about high school students being framed for cheating. The story in the bluff made itself out to be a romance and although there was a good but not overwhelming amount of romance in the book it definitely wasn't the main focus but the amount that was in there I loved. I highly recommend this book to anyone really as I think everyone can find something in here they will love.
truly insufferable. for people who confuse pop culture references with humor or insight, and who confuse interests with having an actual personality.
