Book #5 in Mother Reader’s 48 Hour Book Challenge.
In the wake of her druggie cousin Laura’s suicide, overweight, depressed, liberal, sarcastic, under-achiever, seventeen year old Miles loses herself in drugs and self-pity. It’s not a pretty ride, but after 189 pages of self-indulgent pity party, Miles goes into rehab counseling and becomes the editor of the school newspaper. All’s well that ends well.
Note to self: Do not read anymore books by Rachel Cohn. In my defense, I had forgotten when I picked this book out that Ms. Cohn also co-wrote Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, one of my least favorite books of all time.
If you hate Jane Austen, prefer to “absorb the bleakness of Burroughs or Bukowski, or even the sophisticated, mean-spirited wit of Dorothy Parker, rather than choke down the false promises of Austen and her descendants,” then You Know Where To Find Me is the book for you. You know where to find it.
