Additional Information

Who knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really?

Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other -- and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more.

A book told in alternating points of view by Nina LaCour, the award-winning author of Hold Still and The Disenchantments, and David Levithan, the best-selling author of Every Day and co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green), You Know Me Well is a deeply honest story about navigating the joys and heartaches of first love, one truth at a time.

This is by far my favourite book penned by David Levithan to date. I like his novels, they have interesting characters, a gay narrative, build great relationships and end in some poignant positive note. ‘You Know Me Well’ was all that and more. I will be investigating some of Nina LaCour’s titles as well and see if they stack up.

We get a young teen coming of age, laced with edgy sarcastic humour. But this time the portrayal felt more realistic to me than in many of Levithan’s other titles. And just when I was sure the direction the book would take – it shot off on a tangent. I wasn’t expecting the big Pride fest either. A little cheesy, a little overdone gayness, but had an easy flow and captured my interest from the get go – I could barely put it down. Not that its compelling, rather more engaging and heart-warming. I connected with Mark and Kate more than I have with any of the cast in Levithan’s previous novels. And it was... Read more
This book is as deep or as shallow as you make it. I would have never bought this, but it was so strongly recommended by someone with wonderful book taste and it was on theme with Pride month. If you like coming of age stories with well developed characters in unbelievable situations you'll love this.

I don't think I'm giving away too much, but read the book as though this was retrospective. The characters act and think like adults. I thought there were even some indicators that aged the characters closer to my age then a high school graduate now. This is part of what I found so great about this book, it's a re-imagined high school experience if you knew everything you learn in the five years after. I think that if you are an adult (I'm 24) there are some great take-a-ways and you will not be bored.

Also, Tegan and Sara (the band) are central figures in this book and important to understand one of the character's friendships. If you read closely some song lyrics... Read more
David Levithan and Nina LaCour create two lovely lead characters, Mark and Kate, and place them in a time and location of their lives when things happen quickly and dramatically and change their lives forever. As dramatic and intense as it gets, to me it feels convincing and believable every step of the way. Fun, funny, serious, heart-rending, adult in terms of decisions, juvenile in terms of emotions, it's all there in one mind-blowing Pride Parade.
